Yoo Ah In was suspected to receive the medication from hospitals and clinics, and used them regularly. It is the same case as ketamine and cocaine. At first, no tests were done to detect Zolpidem. However, after raiding medical facilities, the police found more evidence suggesting that the actor was abusing the substance. Zolpidem is a sedative-hypnotic drug to help with insomnia. However, as abuse of this substance can develop into addiction, doctors cannot prescribe more than 10mg per day for patients.
