About Ambien (Zolpidem) Use & Addiction

Ambien is the brand name for the drug Zolpidem and is used, for example, as a sedative for those who have trouble sleeping. It was originally marketed as an alternative to benzodiazepines, but it can have the same hypnotic effects, so it should be taken with caution.
Ambien has become one of the most popular sleep medications in the U.S., but can easily lead to Ambien dependence. According to an estimate by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than 500,000 people are currently abusing Ambien as well as other sedatives. Of course, this abuse requires the help of an Ambien addiction treatment center.

The Dangers of Ambien (Zolpidem)

Like benzodiazepines, Ambien also affects receptor cells in the brain that bind with the chemical GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). GABA influences sleep, but Ambien can cause a variety of effects if a user takes it and stays awake. For example, these effects include (and can lead to a need for Ambien rehab):

  • A feeling of euphoria.
  • Hallucinations
  • An overall “rush”
  • Relaxation
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Motion distortion
