An estimated 50 million adults in the United States suffer from insomnia. Fortunately, there are various drugs that might help a person achieve a good night’s sleep. Ambien is one of these drugs (zolpidem). This medication is really good at assisting with sleep.
Ambien, like many other central nervous systems (CNS) depressants, has the potential for addiction. When a person is addicted to Ambien, their body needs it to function properly, especially with regard to sleep. When a person is reliant on medication, suddenly stopping Ambien after long-term use might result in a variety of withdrawal symptoms. As a result, it’s critical to go off Ambien gradually under the direction of a doctor.
Ambien is a brand name for Zolpidem, a generic prescription sedative-hypnotic drug. Ambien has a calming effect on a neurological level. As a result, it makes it easier for people to fall and stay asleep. Because Ambien decreases brain activity, it also helps to alleviate anxiety symptoms.
There are a few things that someone who has been prescribed Ambien should be aware of. To begin with, Ambien isn’t meant to be used as a long-term insomnia medication. It’s normally only given for a few weeks at a time. This is because tolerance can develop, leading to addiction and dependence. A doctor will also inquire if the patient is using any additional medications, both prescription and non-prescription. Doctors should also be aware of a patient’s or family’s history of substance misuse or addiction before administering Ambien.
Ambien is a psychotropic prescription medicine used to treat insomnia and other sleep problems. The extended-release kind gently releases the medication, making it easier for patients to fall asleep and sleep through the night. Though most people take it to help them sleep, some people use it recreationally, crushing and snorting it to get euphoric effects. This sedative is highly addictive, and it takes just a few weeks to become addicted to it.
When Ambien is misused, it can lead to:
- Withdrawal symptoms
Abusing the drug or developing a tolerance can lead to an overdose. When combined with alcohol or forgetting to take a pill and taking another, it is also more likely to cause an overdose. Symptoms of an overdose include:
- Becomes excessively drowsy
- Slow and deep breathing
- Sluggish heart rate.
