Many users have reported severe sleepwalking habits such as binge eating and even driving. The drug has been available since 1992, and the FDA approved generic versions of the tablet in 2007, according to everydayhealth.com. People who are under the influence of Ambien can even appear and function as awake, while technically still being asleep. However, the reports of side effects have been alarming. This means that the decisions they’re making are not governed by reason or choice.

Although it’s proven to help initiate sleep, the medication has not proven effective at maintaining sleep mode, which is the hardest part about sleep disorders. Healthy sleep isn’t just about falling asleep, but staying asleep for an adequate period time.

According to CBS news, on January 10, 2013, the FDA made an announcement that they were requiring the manufacturer of Ambien to cut the recommended dosage for women in half. Women have also been reported to have a lower tolerance and higher risk to the drug’s side effects.
