About Zolpidem and Zopiclone


Zolpidem and Zopiclone are used for a short period of time to help sleeping difficulties. It reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and increases the length of time spent sleeping.

Do you test for Zolpidem and Zopiclone?

Alphabiolabs can test a subject for Zolpidem and Zopiclone use. We test using state of the art drug testing equipment and processes to ensure that if Zolpidem and Zopiclone is present it will be detected. Also we can detect Zolpidem and Zopiclone over a period of time to show if a subject has stopped using.

For example if someone was using drugs in the past for medical reasons, but claims to have stopped when it is no longer being prescribed, this can be checked.
