ObjectiveIn elderly patients, both falls and impaired memory are considerable medical problems. Hypnotics, which are frequently administered to this patient group for the treatment of insomnia, should ideally not impair equilibrium or memory functions. This double-blind, randomised, four-way, cross-over study investigated the effects of frequently prescribed hypnotics from different classes on postural oscillation and memory under real life conditions. Zolpidem 5 mg, zopiclone 3.75 mg… Expand
Tolerability, pharmacokinetics and night-time effects on postural sway and critical flicker fusion of gaboxadol and zolpidem in elderly subjects.
TLDR
Compared with placebo, neither gaboxadol nor zolpidem impaired attention/information-processing ability as assessed by critical flicker fusion following bedtime dosing in elderly subjects who were woken during the night for assessments. Expand
Effects of Bedtime Dosing With Suvorexant and Zolpidem on Balance and Psychomotor Performance in Healthy Elderly Participants During the Night and in the Morning
TLDR
These exploratory data suggest that a 30-mg dose of suvorexant (supratherapeutic) and a 5-mg doses of zolpidem (recommended dose in the elderly) impaired balance at 1.5 hours in healthy elderly people, with potentially less impairment for suvorxant relative to zolPidem, but no treatment differences on body sway or psychomotor performance at 4 and 8 hours. Expand
Influence of risperidone on balance control in young healthy individuals
TLDR
Risperidone administered at low doses did not elicit clinically detectable EPS but had significant effects on balance control, likely to apply to older or demented individuals who have pre-existing balance control deficit. Expand
A double-blind, placebo-controlled investigation of the residual psychomotor and cognitive effects of zolpidem-MR in healthy elderly volunteers.
TLDR
In elderly subjects, zolpidem-MR showed no residual functional impairment in psychometric or cognitive tests sensitive to flurazepam. Expand
Residual effects of zolpidem, triazolam, rilmazafone and placebo in healthy elderly subjects: a randomized double-blind study.
TLDR
Although subjective assessments tended to be poor in the early morning, rilmazafone significantly improved the body sway test in the other hypnotics and seemed to be more favorable for the elderly with early morning awakening. Expand
Effect of hypnotic drugs on body balance and standing steadiness.
TLDR
Patients should be warned about the possible risk of imbalance and falls due to the use of sleep medication and benzodiazepine hypnotics and Z-drugs significantly impair body balance in a dose-dependent manner. Expand
Ramelteon 8 mg/d versus placebo in patients with chronic insomnia: post hoc analysis of a 5-week trial using 50% or greater reduction in latency to persistent sleep as a measure of treatment effect.
TLDR
In this post hoc analysis of data from patients with chronic insomnia, a significantly greater percentage experienced a > or = 50% reduction in LPS with ramelteon 8 mg/d versus placebo, with no evidence of withdrawal or rebound insomnia. Expand
A 2-night, 3-period, crossover study of ramelteon's efficacy and safety in older adults with chronic insomnia
TLDR
In older adults with chronic primary insomnia, ramelteon produced significant reductions in latency to persistent sleep and increases in total sleep time and sleep efficacy, and showed no evidence of adverse next-day psychomotor or cognitive effects. Expand
An efficacy, safety, and dose-response study of Ramelteon in patients with chronic primary insomnia.
TLDR
Ramelteon demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in LPS and a statisticallysignificant increase in TST, with no apparent next-day residual effects, in patients with chronic primary insomnia. Expand
The efficacy and safety of zolpidem and zopiclone to treat insomnia in Alzheimer’s disease: a randomized, triple-blind, placebo-controlled trial
TLDR
Short-term use of zolpidem or zopiclone by older insomniacs with AD appears to be clinically helpful, even though safety and tolerance remain issues to be personalized in healthcare settings and further investigated in subsequent trials. Expand

The effects of acute and repeated doses of zolpidem on subjective sleep, psychomotor performance and cognitive function in elderly volunteers
TLDR
Zolpidem produced a subjective improvement in sleep but did not impair performance the following day, and during repeated administration, there was no tolerance to the effects of sleep latency and quality of sleep, nor adverse effects on task performance. Expand
Comparative study of the effects of zopiclone (7.5 mg), zolpidem, flunitrazepam and a placebo on nocturnal cognitive performance in healthy subjects, in relation to pharmacokinetics.

TLDR
There appears to be a clear effect on attention and vigilance and this effect is apparent during the kinetic phase of the absorption of the medication, while the effect on memory is transient and is absent four hours after the ingestion of the drug. Expand
Comparison of the Effects of Zolpidem and Triazolam on Memory Functions, Psychomotor Performances, and Postural Sway in Healthy Subjects
TLDR
It may be concluded that Zolpidem, like triazolam, impairs short- and long-term memory, psychomotor performances, and postural sway and that these effects are of short duration. Expand
Dose–related effect of triazolam on postural sway
TLDR
Computer‐assisted force platform measures of sway provide a clinically relevant measure of drug effect at hypnotic or anxiolytic doses of triazolam, and may be useful in persons at risk for falls, such as the elderly. Expand
Comparison of the effects of zolpidem and flunitrazepam on sleep structure and daytime cognitive functions. A study of untreated unsomniacs.
TLDR
Results indicate that zolpidem 10 mg preserved sleep structure and daytime cognitive functions in contrast to flunitrazepam, which significantly increased stage 2 and decreased slow wave sleep and REM sleep. Expand
Interactions and comparative effects of zopiclone, diazepam and lorazepam on psychomotor performance and on elimination pharmacokinetics in healthy volunteers.
TLDR
Zopiclone does not alter the elimination pharmacokinetics of the BZD anxiolytics diazepam (5mg) and lorazepam (1 mg), and neither is the elimination of zopiclones affected by these BZDs, and the increase in sedation seen after concurrent administration with BZds is of short duration. Expand
Residual effects of lormetazepam on mood and performance in healthy elderly volunteers
TLDR
The single and repeated doses of lormetazepam resulted in impairment of performance in a memory task, and the repeated dose administration impaired performance of a perceptual task. Expand
Effect on postural sway of various benzodiazepine tranquillizers.
TLDR
Administration of clobazam did not produce any impairment of equilibrium, indicating that it is devoid of any sedative effect measurable by posturography, and no changes of the postural sway can be detected on the measurement recorded 10 h after the last dose of 1 week's treatment. Expand
Effects of zopiclone, triazolam, and nitrazepam on standing steadiness.
TLDR
Zopiclone, triazolam, and nitrazepam, reported to be equipotent to each other as hypnotics, are not equipotent with respect to their effects on postural sway. Expand
Effects of Alcohol, Zolpidem, and Some Other Sedatives and Hypnotics on Human Performance and Memory
TLDR
It is possible that 15 mg Zol impairs memory relatively less than 15 mg Dz does, and that all active agents tended to impair learning and memory, their decremental effects, in declining order, being Zol, Dz > EOH, Ox > Zop. Expand
