Improvement of blepharospasm with Zolpidem

Authors


Abstract

Zolpidem (ZLP) is an imidazopyridine that binds to GABA receptors. We report on improvement of blepharospasm in 3 patients treated with ZLP. The GABAergic action of this drug on the output structures of the basal ganglia could explain the improvement of blepharospasm in these patients. © 2004 Movement Disorder Society
