Ambien occupies one of the most important places in modern insomnia therapy. Every year, the medicine is used in clinical practice increasingly often, due to its pronounced hypnotic and sedative effect. To solve the problem of sleep onset and completely get rid of chronic insomnia symptoms, it is enough to buy Ambien, and take it for several weeks.
People should use Ambien, if they suffer from such symptoms, as:
- intermittent sleep;
- superficial sleep;
- difficulty falling asleep;
- unsatisfactory sleep quality,
- lack of feeling rested after sleep;
- early awakening with the inability to fall back asleep.
Ambien belongs to third-generation sleeping drugs (Z drugs), which appear to replace the benzodiazepines. The main difference between Ambien and traditional benzodiazepine hypnotics is increased safety and minimal risk for dependence and undesirable reactions.
To buy Ambien, patients must choose one of two dosage forms:
- tablets of 5 mg and 10 mg
- extended-release tablets of 6.25 mg and 12.5 mg
While regular tablets help solve the problem of falling asleep, the extended-release tablets are used to maintain a healthy sleep throughout the entire night.
Each Ambien tablet contains the active ingredient Zolpidem. The structure of this ingredient differs from the structure of benzodiazepines, yet the mechanism of Zolpidem action is similar to the action mechanism of benzodiazepines. High selectivity of Ambien to benzodiazepine receptors contributes to weak anticonvulsant, muscle relaxing and anxiolytic effects.
Healthy and deep sleep in women comes in 15 minutes after the intake of one Ambien 5 mg pill. To achieve a normal and full sleep, Men should buy Ambien 10 mg tablets and take them once a day before bedtime. Differences in Ambien dosages are associated with significantly slower Ambien clearance in women, than in men.
To permanently get rid of chronic insomnia and solve problems with sleep maintenance, patients are advised to take one extended-release 12.5 mg Ambien tablet before going to bed.
Elderly patients over 65 years of age or people with liver disease may be particularly sensitive to the drug, so Ambien dose for them is one conventional 5 mg tablet or one extended-release tablet of 6.25 mg.
Ambien is not the first Zolpidem-based medicine. The sleeping drug Zolpidem was developed in the late 1980s in the French pharmaceutical company Sanofi-Aventis. The goal of Zolpidem creation was to minimize the negative consequences of benzodiazepine hypnotics.
On December 16, 1992, Sanofi-Aventis obtained a marketing authorization for the sale of Ambien tablets in the USA. In September 2005, extended-release Ambien tablets appeared on the shelves of American pharmacies.
For 15 years, Ambien remained the only Zolpidem-based sleeping drug, which was available for sale in the USA. Yet, the term of patent protection for Ambien expired on April 20, 2007, and cheap analogues of this hypnotic drug went on sale.
To use this effective and safe hypnotic, Americans do not need to have a doctor’s prescription. If a person does not have a prescription, he can buy Ambien online.
To date, Ambien tablets are not the only treatment that Americans can use to solve sleep problems. Other Zolpidem-containing medicines are also sold in American pharmacies, including:
- Zolpidem oral spray.
- Edluar and Intermezzo sublingual tablets.
The hypnotic drug is also sold under its non-proprietary name Zolpidem. American suppliers of Ambien generics are such pharmaceutical companies as Teva, Anchen Pharms, Meda Pharms, Actavis, Roxane, Mylan, Amherst, Purdue, Apotex, Yung Shin Pharm and others.
Ambien is a trademark, registered specifically for the US pharmaceutical market. To buy Ambien in other countries, for example, in Canada, you must order the medicine online or find the drug under a different brand. Canadians can find in pharmacies such branded Zolpidem generics, as Ivadal and Sublinox.
