Mayo Clinic doctors were the first to publish a report on the link between the insomnia drug zolpidem (Ambien) and sleep-related eating disorders. They continue research on a range of disruptive sleep-related disorders.
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic doctors on sleep-related eating disorder on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
