At 9:30 this morning (British Summer Time) Ladan had her second dose of Zolpidem, this time she had the full recommended 10mg of the drug. It is now an hour and twenty minutes later and there are no uncommon observations. If anything the medication has made her more restful for a while and more reflexive when moved (this needs a fuller explanation on the different ways the body can respond to things, which I will provide another time soon).
In the 10-15% of people, in similar conditions to Ladan, who tried Zolpidem that reacted well to it, a positive reaction was usually seen after the first dose. There is at least one case where the first positive reaction was after more than a week of using the medication at 10mg/day, so hopefully we will continue for a couple of weeks to see if anything does eventually happen. There certainly don’t seem to be any negative side effects appearing from the medication.
Thank you so much to everyone who has been thinking of Ladan and praying for her through this. I really appreciate it very much indeed.
