An in-home way to escape Ambien addiction

Ambien is a sedative-hypnotic that has similar side effects and withdrawals to a benzodiazepine (xanax, valium, etc) and should only be used short-term.  Ambien can cause retrograde amnesia, or loss of memory before and after the drug is taken. This has led to dangerous sleep-eating, sleep-driving and other strange behavior. Many experience tolerance to Ambien, where larger amounts are required to have the desired effect. It is recommended to taper Ambien slowly to avoid withdrawal symptoms, rebound anxiety and insomnia.

>Ambien binds strongly to GABA receptors and can cause amnesia, delusions, altered thought patterns and impaired judgment. Reports have linked episodes of sleepwalking and related strange and dangerous behavior to Ambien. An analysis of the controlled clinical trials, showed little difference between Ambien and benzodiazepines in terms of sleep onset or duration, quality of sleep, adverse effects. Tolerance, rebound insomnia, daytime alertness or physical dependence.

Ambien withdrawal if done incorrectly can cause debilitating symptoms that interfere with life. Learn how to withdraw from Ambien correctly.

What is Ambien?

(Zolpidem, Stilnox, Stilnoct, Hypnogen, Zolt, Zolfresh, Namadorm, Sanval, Myslee)

    Ambien (Zolpidem) resembles benzodiazepines with similar side effects and risks, although they have dissimilar chemical structures. Ambien was not proven effective in maintaining sleep and is prescribed more for sleep initiation issues. Ambien is known as a Z-drug, which was thought to be less addictive or habit-forming than benzodiazepines. However, this appraisal is proving to be inaccurate, as documented cases of addiction have surfaced. Ambien works by depressing the central nervous system, and after continuous use (longer than 10-14 days) adaptations occur. Reducing Imovane too rapidly or stopping the drug can result in rebound withdrawal symptoms that are also seen in benzodiazepine withdrawal. According to the World Health Organization, Ambien binds with high affinity to the same sites as the benzodiazepine class of drugs. A gradual taper is recommended.
