There is nothing better than a good night’s sleep. Not getting enough sleep in the evening can have negative effects to your physical and mental health, as well as to your behavior and performance the following day.

If you’re having problems going to sleep, ask your doctor about AMBIEN (zolpidem tartrate), this is one of the most prescribed sleep medication used in the United States.

So physicians understand how it works, and whether it can help an individual with their particular sleep disorders.

Ambien as any other medication, has side-effects as well as benefits. Consult your doctor to see if Ambien is right for you.
