If you are suffering from insomnia and you are looking to relieve your sufferings by good quality sleep – Ambien is a medication of choice. It provides a natural long lasting effect with less side effects than most other sleeping pills.
What is Ambien?
The answer to this question can be threefold:
1) Ambien is a nonbenzodiazepine drug acting with omega-1 GABA receptors as their selective agonist. That is from the pharmaceutical point of view. The thing is that previously for treating sleeping disorders opiates were used, they were dismissed for obvious reasons, then the barbiturates. Barbiturates made you fall asleep but the morning after you would wake up with heavy head and tired, as if you were partying all night. This effect was caused by the fact that barbiturates mingle with the phases of sleep. It turned out that the night sleep is not the same and has phases – acceleration, deceleration, ups and downs in the brain activity, phases when you see the dreams and when you don’t (or those are different kinds of dreams that you can’t remember). Barbiturates knock you out but they don’t guarantee the freshness the day after. The next step was benzodiazepines. They did not interfere with the natural structure of sleep and induced sleep deep enough and natural enough for you to feel well rested the day after. Benzodiazepines worked with certain receptors that made nervous system slow down. They just improved the nervous pathways that these receptors contained so that they did their job – “slowing down” the nervous system better, causing a person to sleep. The next step was expected to be a breakthrough – the nonbenzodiazepines, the ones that Ambien belongs to, those drugs worked with the same receptors that the benzodiazepines did, but more selectively – with certain subtypes only. Selective is always better, it means less Ambien side effects. The miracle however did not happen, as for treating sleep disorder Ambien is just as effective as benzodiazepine Klonopin, only with fewer Ambien side effects as advertised.
2) What is ambien for users? Ambien is one of the z drugs. Zopiclone, zolpidem and zaleplon were the three nonbenzodiazepine meds that were advertised as revolutionary in their time. They had similar effects, so comparing zolpidem vs zopiclone or ambien vs zopiclone does not make much of a sense. Z drugs were used for professions that required precision and responsibility and required to be well rested to perform. Zolpidem sleeping tablets were advertised as a drug pilots would take – everyone understood pilots are responsible and have to sleep after long sllep deprivations in unusual time zones, and if pilots buy ambien so should we.
3) What is ambien for insomniacs? Ambien sleeping pill is a solution for sleeping disorders for many. Taking ambien 10 mg (zolpidem 10 mg) will not just knock you off for a night – it will get you to fall asleep naturally.
Also – what is abmien if you found it under another name and are not sure?
Active ingredient for this drug is zolpidem, or zolpidem tartrate, so if you have found something like zolpidem sleeping tablets or ambien sleeping pill – it’s the same thing.
Where do you buy Ambien?
Ambien is a prescription drug and you need to consult with your doctor before taking it. The reason for that is that insomnia can have much deeper causes than just extra cup of coffee before going to bed. Bipolar disorder, central nervous system disorders, altered mental status, deep psychological problems that need to be solved and that solution can only be postponed by sleeping meds.
If you know the underlying cause or you are sure that there is nothing wrong with you but there will be unless you finally doze off, but you are too lazy to go to a clinic – there is solution to that as well. Nowadays you can buy zolpidem online conveniently in our online pharmacy. It would be good, however if your doctor advised you previously if ambien is good for you, or you just knew your options and could compare zolpidem vs zopiclone for example.
If you buy Ambien online, you will be saving a lot of time money and effort. Package gets delivered to your door or PO box and you don’t have to pay commission to the middlemen. Compared to local pharmacies, to buy Ambien online is much cheaper, sometimes several times cheaper.
Ambien side effects
From people who received zolpidem 5 mg in a trial there were some confirmed side effects: dizziness, daytime sleepiness, amnesia and headaches, but all of those cases were noticed in less than half percent of patients. If we take a thousand regular people – how many would have headaches or feel sleepy while pretending to work in an office? And how many could there be if they were insomniacs? And how many people could have lost their sleep because they thought about it too much and had OCDs?
So while those side effects are undoubtedly well documented and valid, the chances of getting those side effects if you were not inclined to them before taking Ambien are statistically irrelevant.
It is recommended to start with zolpidem 5 mg and see if there is a significant improvement, if there is none – to precede with zolpidem 10 mg. It is not recommended to use more than 10 mg per day, in elderly people even that may be too much, so if 5 mg gets the job done – you should stay with that dose, if 10 mg does not get you to sleep – consul your doctor before taking bigger dose.
Now that we have warned you, there are also good news. Even though zolpidem overdose is possible and likely, it may lead to impeded mental states, even comas, total recoveries have been documented even after taking zolpidem 400 mg – it is 40 times more than the maximum recommended dose. Even if someone is suicidal and took four blisters of Ambien – his or her chances for recovery are still pretty good if the vomiting is induced and he is brought to the clinic in time (we still don’t recommend experimenting with the big Ambien dose).
The situation is much worse if you mix Ambien sleeping pills with something – from alcohol to sedatives – that can cause lethal effect.
Hemodialysis would be ineffective but there is an antidote to zolpidem sleeping tablets – Flumazenil the wakening tablets (more often ampules). Flumazenil blocks benzodiazepine receptors and is used to treat benzodiazepine poisonings.
Application of Ambien
If you have sleeping problems, namely if you suffer from waking up in the middle of the night and are unable to fall asleep again, if you can’t fall asleep in the first place, if your sleep is too short and you sleep too little and need to change that – you should take Ambien sleeping pill.
Interaction with other medicine
If you buy zolpidem online without talking to your doctor first you might want to read this paragraph. Zolpidem sleeping tablets should not be mixed with alcohol, they should not be mixed with antihistamine pills or neuroleptics. Using zolpidem tartrate together with benzodiazepine meds can increase the risks of developing a dependency.
