Zolpidem tartrate (Ambien), Ambien.com: "AMBIEN can be very effective in the short-term treatment of insomnia. It can help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and not awaken prematurely. AMBIEN works with a natural brain chemical called GABA. GABA is one of at least 18 major brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters control communication among neighboring brain cells by either increasing or decreasing their electrical activity."

Zolpidem tartrate (Ambien),Rxlist.com:"Zolpidem tartrate, is a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic of the imidazopyridine class and is available in 5 mg and 10 mg strength tablets for oral administration.Zolpidem tartrate is indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia. Hypnotics should generally be limited to 7 to 10 days of use; and reevaluation of the patient is recommended if they are to be taken for more than 2 to 3 weeks."

******************************************************

Zolpidem tartrate (Ambien), MedlinePlus:"Sleep medicines may cause a special type of memory loss or ``amnesia''. When this occurs, a person does not remember what has happened during the several hours between use of the medicine and the time when its effects wear off. This is usually not a problem since most people fall asleep after taking the medicine. In most instances, memory problems can be avoided by taking zolpidem only when you are able to get a full night's sleep (7 to 8 hours) before you need to be active again. Be sure to talk to your doctor if you think you are having memory problems."

Zolpidem tartrate (Ambien) WebMD:"Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Zolpidem will cause drowsiness and may cause dizziness. If you experience drowsiness or dizziness, avoid these activities. Zolpidem should be taken just before bedtime, but you may experience some carryover effects the next day. Do not drink alcohol while taking zolpidem. Alcohol will increase drowsiness and may increase dizziness while you are taking zolpidem, which could be dangerous. Avoid other sedatives, sleeping pills, and tranquilizers, including over-the-counter preparations. They should not be used while you are taking zolpidem unless your doctor directs otherwise."
