If 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
- Binge eating while asleep
If you’ve suffered any side effect after using Zolpidem/Ambien, we can help. GetLegal has the tools and resources to help you find skilled legal representation to protect your rights. Visit our attorney directory, look for your geographic location and find the best lawyer for your situation.
