What is Ambien?
Also known as Zolpidem, Ambien is a sleeping tablet which works like a sedative to treat stress and anxiety. The medication affects parts of the brain which remains awake for people who suffer from insomnia and anxiety preventing them from drifting off. The extended release version, Ambien CR, has two layers. The first one dissolves to help you fall asleep and the second layer dissolves to make you stay in that sleep induced state for at least 7 to 8 hours.
You can find Ambien online in the UK and the best way to use it is to read the instructions which come with it. The medication has to be taken orally and preferably on an empty stomach as prescribed by a doctor. One per night should be enough to make anyone fall asleep and stay asleep for at least 7 hours straight. It usually does not work as quickly if it is taken on a full stomach or right after a meal so ensure to have dinner at least 2 to 3 hours beforehand.
Ambien tablets are not recommended to be taken in the middle of the day so if you want to take a short nap, some warm milk will do the trick. Otherwise, you will get up feeling groggy with some memory loss which can impede your performance throughout the day. Since you will have trouble doing any activities throughout the day if you take Ambien for a short nap, keep it at home so you are not tempted. If you drive heavy machinery that, grogginess can end up hurting, you or someone else – literally.
The recommended dosage is based on age, gender and current medical condition along with any other medications you might be taking. Some tablets do not react well with Ambien and others can compromise its effectiveness. It is inadvisable to take more tablets than recommended or for longer than it is prescribed even if you buy Ambien in the UK online. Women are usually prescribed a lower dose compared to men since the tablets take more time to move through their system. Similarly, seniors should not take Ambien more than necessary since it has side effects which could harm them.
If taken for longer than prescribed, Ambien can become addictive and cause severe withdrawal symptoms if taken in high doses over a long period of time. In severe cases, vomiting, hot flashes and stomach cramps are normal but the risks can be alleviated if the tablets are allowed to disappear from the system slowly. This means your doctor may ask you to stop taking Ambien every night and reduce the dosage to alternative days and then eventually 2 to 3 days until they are sure your system can function without it.
