5 mg IV Pharms - Zolpidem


IV Zolpidem

Having had extensive experience preparing aseptic excipient free solution for IV use, this is the only mistake I ever made...

5mg of Zolpidem tartrate in 5ml Bacteriostatic NaCl, and filtering to complete clarity albeit pink color due to 5mg tabs color, I drew it up, and figured IV diazepam, and other substances were easy to titrate, I pushed all 5mg.

Woke up about 30 minutes late, needle lying beside me. Don't think the dose could kill anyone, but within 20 to 30 seconds I was out.

Just thought this was interesting, since benzo-related compounds take longer to have effect. In the future, I lowered the dose considerably.
