Ambien or known as Zolpidem in its generic form is hypnotic. This drug is mostly used to treat insomnia. It is not intended to be used regularly nor for long periods of time as it is addictive. If the drug has been used for an extended period, it will be necessary to slowly reduce the dosage as sudden stoppage can cause withdrawal symptoms including a more severe form of insomnia.
