Is It Possible To Be Addicted To Zolpidem Or Ambien?

I know these are supposed to be sedatives, so I’m just wondering how people get addicted (if they do). Are there side effects?.

  1. The people who get addicted to Zolpidem are those who fight the sedative effects of the drug and thus manage to experience euphoria. Some side effects are as follows:
    * impaired reasoning and judgment
    * delusions
    * uninhibition in interpersonal or social settings
    * hallucinations
    * heightened impulsivity
    * poor motor coordination
    * decreased libido
    * when intake is stopped, rebound insomnia is likely to occur
    * loss of memory for events immediately following a trauma
    * intensified appetite
    When taken for long periods of time, the use of Ambien or Zolpidem may also lead to dependence.

  2. Yes, my mom has been on ambien for over 8 yrs..& has to have them to sleep,,i tried it & I woke up in the night going to the bathroom & ran into the wall ,,& i only used half one!
    the do potentiate memory loss, noted cases on the news told of people actually driving , & going places & don’t even remember it. it’s not a very good choice.
