Ambien, or more commonly known as Zolpidem, is a sleeping tablet used to treat Insomnia. Zolpidem is effective in the treatment of a variety of sleeping disorders and is widely prescribed in the UK as a sleeping aid. Zolpidem works by helping you to fall asleep quicker and helps you to stop waking up during the night.
Ambien Sleeping Tablets
Zolpidem (Ambien) belongs to a group of medicines called Nonbenzodiazepine (sleeping tablets). Ambien works by acting on the brains receptors which results in a feeling a relaxation and sleepiness. Ambien is very effective in the treatment of a number of sleeping disorders such as insomnia and is also used as a short term treatment of jetlag.
Ambien is the brand name of the sleeping tablet Zolpidem and is available in a number of dosages and package sizes. The most common dose is Zolpidem 10mg tablets that are used to treat insomnia in adults on a short term basis.
Zolpidem (Ambien) 10mg tablets can help with the following sleeping disorders:
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Waking up during the night
- Sleep walking
- Trouble sleeping due to stress
Zolpidem works by acting on the brains chemical receptors. These receptors are responsible for creating a nerve calming agent (neurotransmitter) that is natural to the human body called GABA. The human body naturally produces this nerve calming agent and is responsible for controlling the activity in the brain and keeping it balanced. When someone is suffering from a sleeping disorder such as insomnia this means that there is a slight imbalance in the brains activity. Ambien works to ensure that there is a balance in the brains nerve activity and the result is a feeling of sleepiness, muscle relaxation and reduced anxiety, all of which help an individual fall to sleep but more importantly maintain the sleep throughout the night.
Zolpidem (Ambien) is intended for the short term treatment of sleeping disorders; prolonged usage could result in dependency and increase the likelihood of experiencing some side effects of zolpidem.
Sleeping tablets noticeably decrease the total time that it takes to fall asleep and also adds significant improvement to the total amount of time that sleep is achieved for. There are a number of reasons that can contribute to sleeping disorders, the most common reason being stress.
Ambien sleeping tablets typically come in tablet form and should be taken immediately before bed as this medication is a fast working treatment. The tablet should be swallowed whole with a glass of water, do not chew the tablet as this may accelerate the rate at which the tablet works which means that you experience heavy sleepiness and drowsiness in a rapid space of time.
Zolpidem is a prescription drug only, which means that an individual needs a valid prescription from a licensed UK doctor or pharmacist.

Zolpidem side effects
As with all medications, side effects can occur with regular usage of this medication. Although many of the side effects experienced are not dangerous and are common among users of sleeping tablets, we still recommend to let your doctor know of all side effects that you are experiencing.
The most common Zolpidem side effects are:
- Daytime drowsiness
- Dry Mouth
- Muscle pain
- Skin rash/irritation
- Feeling mentally and physically tired
More Serious Zolpidem side effects include:
Zolpidem and Alcohol
Zolpidem tablets should not be consumed whilst under the influence of alcohol. This can be a dangerous mix and when combined can cause you to fall into a much heavier and deeper sleep than usual. When combined users will have an increased likelihood of experiencing other side effects such as breathing difficulty whilst sleeping, this can be extremely dangerous if an individual is also in a deep sleep.
During Pregnancy and Breastfeeing
Sleeping tablets in general should not be used during pregnancy as this can have a number of side effects on an unborn baby. Usage during pregnancy can also cause the new-born baby to develop withdrawal symptoms.
Ambien will be present in breastmilk in very small doses, if you are planning using zolpidem during breastfeeding, please speak to your doctor/midwife on alternative feeding options for your newborn.
