Ambien and Benzo

Apr 29, 2008 - 5 comments

For those that use Ambien and do not think it is addictive be very careful. The generic name for Ambien is Zolpidem/stilnoct.  This is a very informative website with tons of information on Ambien other Z class drugs and Benzos.

The Z Drugs
Zaleplon Sonata
Zopiclone Zimovane
Zolpidem Stilnoct
Eszopiclone Lunesta

The Z drugs although molecularly distinct from traditional benzodiazepines they still act on benzodiazepine receptors and produce similar side effects and have similar addiction and withdrawal problems.

people are told by doctors and commercials that ambien is non-habit forming non-narcotic. Now people that have used it for many weeks, months or longer are finding out it is the opposite. I will never take another sleeping pill.

Anyone that thinks this is not true should take Ambien for a few weeks and see.

Take care Kimmieb!!!

absolutely......and google "theroadback" and take a look at their program....they lump benzos AND sleeping aids and anti-depressants together in that category.....VERY addictive and very habit forming and very difficult to get off of.....of COURSE it does weird things to your brain.....how could it not, for heaven's sake??!

thanks chi chi for bringing that to everyone's attention.....i don't think everyone is aware of this situation

take care of  yourself, too......good to hear from you!! :-)
