Ambien (generic name: Zolpidem) has been proven to be an extremely dangerous substance, the F.D.A. has not and will not do anything about this injustice. For more information about the many dangers of Ambien, go to www.ambienoutrage.com.
In July, 2011 my husband walked downstairs took a gun he had never fired and committed suicide. He had been on Ambien/Zolpidem for a couple of years for a sleep problem. In taking this drug, he worried that it really wasn't helping him because he didn't realize how fast he was going to sleep. I asked him to only take l/2 pill at night to sleep, but he was adamant that it wasn't enough to help him. This drug changed his personality and sometime he didn't even realize what he was doing or saying. His driving became impaired because he seemed to be far off in his thinking. I blame this drug for totally addicting him and for his actions on that fateful morning. To say he was a "walking zombie" is an understatement. I loved him so much and he was only 72. Please, if you are or someone you know is taking this drug, do all in your power to get them off this horrible pill!
I am in the process of locating a doctor to get me off of Ambien. It has ruined my life. It has caused me anxiety and depression and once it stops working you find yourself taking more and more just to get to sleep. This drug is a hell drug and doctors need to quit prescribing it like candy.
I can't believe Ambien hasn't been taken off the market after so many ruined lives.
