Ambien Sleeping Pill Information
Ambien® (zolpidem tartrate) is a prescription medication approved for treating insomnia in adults age 18 and older. However, because Ambien is not suitable for everyone, make sure to review the prescribing information on the sleeping pills before starting treatment with Ambien.
For example, you may not be able to take Ambien if you have certain medical conditions, such as depression, kidney disease, or any sort of addiction. Also, you may not be able to safely use Ambien if you are currently taking certain medications (including some vitamins, herbal supplements, and non-prescription medications).
Although most people do not experience problems with this medication, Ambien can cause side effects. Some of the common side effects include dizziness, daytime drowsiness, and diarrhea. Ambien comes in the form of a tablet and is taken once a day (immediately before bedtime).
