Anyone here ever experienced with Ambien (Zolpidem)?  Does anyone know if it is possible for this "nonbenzodiazepines" to become addictive?

Gone off the cocaine have ya?  [8D]

Quote
A review medical publication found that long term use of zolpidem is associated with drug tolerance, drug dependence, rebound insomnia and CNS related adverse effects. It was recommended that zolpidem be used for short periods of time using the lowest effective dose.

As far as Ambien goes, I take it regularly.  Sometimes 15 mg per night.

As was Africa then? Or is there something more sinister behind this? I sincerely hope not.

Herr denstudent, your comments are blah blah blah.

A lifetime of Staatssicherheit work has taken a toll on your mind.

I advise never talking to anyone who uses the word "hate" in posts.

Maybe - but it should not be tolerated when stated in such an intolerable manner.
