Abstract

According to the literature, electroconvulsive therapy and benzodiazepines, especially lorazepam, are recommended for the treatment of catatonia. We report the case of a 56-year-old woman with catatonia resistant to electroconvulsive therapy and benzodiazepines. Treatment with zolpidem led to durable improvement. This case suggests that zolpidem should be tested in catatonia since side effects are minimal.
