Zaleplon (Sonata) oral sedation for outpatient third molar extraction surgery.Anesth Prog. 2005 Winter; 52(4):128-31.AP
Zalpelon was compared with triazolam for oral sedation in a third molar surgery model using a double-blind crossover design. Factors such as anxiolysis, amnesia, and quality of sedation were assessed. Of the 14 participants who completed the study, zaleplon sedation was found to be similar to triazolam sedation in all regards except that recovery from zaleplon was more rapid.
