Nocturnal eating disorders are more common than previously thought. Sleep related eating disorder has been described in association with zolpidem. A review of the literature revealed the presence of 6 previously reported cases. In this presentation, the case of a 46-year-old female who developed sleep related eating disorder when she was treated with zolpidem for insomnia is reported. The patient recovered totally when zolpidem was stopped. Drug-induced sleep related eating disorders should be considered when evaluating patients with nocturnal eating.
