Watch out with this medication. I have been taking 10 mg of zolpidem for over 4 months now. I sleep like a baby. But... Soon after I take it I eat and don't know I am eating.

Comment:
I take Ambien occaisonally when I need to. This med works great but you need to make sure you have an empty stomach before taking it. If you have food in your stomach, it does not work effectively!
