Gaboxadol is an experimental sleep aid drug developed by Lundbeck and Merck. In March, 2007, Merck and H. Lundbeck cancelled work on the drug, citing safety concerns and the failure of an efficacy trial. It acts on the GABA system, but in a very different way than benzodiazepines and Z-drugs (zolpidem, zaleplon, etc). Lundbeck states that gaboxadol also increases deep sleep (stage 4).
