Ambien Indications

Some people may wonder about the indications (or uses) of Ambien. Ambien® (zolpidem tartrate) is a prescription medication approved to treat short-term insomnia, also known as transient or acute insomnia. It is generally used for a couple of days to a few weeks. Ambien indications are only approved for adults age 18 and older.
Ambien is part of a class of medications called sedative/hypnotics, which are known more commonly as sleep medicines. Based on clinical studies, when compared to people who did not take Ambien, people who took it:
  • Fell asleep faster
  • Slept longer
  • Had higher-quality sleep
  • Had fewer awakenings.
Short-term insomnia can last from one night to a few weeks. It is often caused by emotional or physical discomfort, and can be related to a single specific event. At this time, there are no off-label indications for Ambien.
