The purported enhancement of sexuality, coupled with a possible abrupt coma-inducing effect and ease of administration in spiked drinks have resulted in the use of hypnotics to facilitated a sex offence. Among these compounds, zolpidem possesses amnesic properties, is short-acting and can rapidly impair an individual. In order to document zolpidem exposure, we have developed an original analytical method in oral fluid. 500 microl of oral fluid was added to 500 microl pH 7.6 Soerensen buffer was… Expand
