AMBIENIf you’ve sought medical attention for insomnia over the two decades, there’s a good chance that you’ve been prescribed Zolpidem, originally marketed under the brand name Ambien. There are now a number of FDA-approved generic versions of the drug, typically prescribed for short-term (2-6 weeks) treatment of sleeping disorders.
Zolpidem has been associated with a variety of detrimental side effects, including:

  • Headaches, nausea and vomiting, typically during the withdrawal period
  • Hallucinations or nightmares
  • Some degree of amnesia
  • Mood swings
  • Impaired reasoning or judgment
  • Night eating disorder—where most of your daily calories are consumed shortly before you go to bed
  • Impulsive or extroverted behavior
  • Sleepwalking
  • Binge eating while asleep
