Ambien, also known as Zolpidem in its generic form, is typically prescribed for the treatment of occasional sleeplessness (insomnia) and in some cases brain disorders. Under medical supervision, taking Ambien in its prescribed amount is considered very safe. However, it has become commonly used for other, unintended purposes, like achieving a hypnotic state of mind, relaxing muscles and/or reaching a sedation state. Overuse of Ambien can lead to unsafe health risks for your body. It is not a member of the benzodiazepine drug class, but the effects that addicts are seeking to achieve have many of the same traits as a drug of the benzodiazepine class.
Effects of Ambien Abuse
Using Ambien for a long period of time or taking higher dosages of Ambien create physical and mental issues for its users. Some of the effects of misuse include nausea, vomiting, hallucinations and amnesia, to name a few. Just like many other drugs, your body can become immune to lower dosages and therefore you often need to take more of the drug to reap the same effects. Taking more than the safe amount also helps battle developing a tolerance. Consequences of taking this addictive drug with other drugs like opiates, alcohol or antidepressants can be highly dangerous and even fatal.
