About Ambien
It's important to take Ambien exactly as your doctor tells you to. Ambien will likely make you sleepy shortly after you take it and will make you feel sleepy for a long time after. Take Ambien only when you are ready for bed and can sleep for at least seven to eight hours.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released a warning about zolpidem, including Ambien, asking manufacturers to lower the recommended bedtime dose. This happened because some people were still too sleepy to function safely in the morning. If you are taking Ambien, discuss with your doctor what the right dose of Ambien is for you.

Talk with your doctor again if your sleeping has not improved in 7 to 10 days. Ambien should not be taken over a long period of time.
