I noticed the difference between true Ambien and the generic when I had to switch. I was using Zolpidem by Ranbaxy, which worked okay (still.

Seriously, it was so bad I just tossed it, and I think I asked (at Target) if there had been any other complaints. I only remember getting ONE really shitty brand of generic ambien, but I can't remember which one.
My insurance only allows for 30 per month, so it sucks because I always end up either running out before I can get a refill or having to offset a 10mg tab with 50 mg diphenhydramine to sleep through the night.

J Int Med Res. 2001 May-Jun;29(3):163-77. A double-blind comparative study of zolpidem versus zopiclone in the treatment of chronic primary insomnia. Tsutsui.
With zolpidem, sleep onset latency improved in significantly more patients (85.8% versus 77.5%) and significantly fewer patients showed aggravated sleep onset latency relative to baseline at follow-up (4.5% versus 15.4%). Significantly fewer patients receiving zolpidem experienced drug-related adverse events (31.3% versus 45.3%), with bitter taste representing 5.8% (six of 104) of such complaints with zolpidem compared with 39.9% (69/173) with zopiclone. In conclusion, zolpidem was at least as effective as zopiclone, showed significantly less rebound on discontinuation and was better tolerated. The primary endpoint was the investigators' rating of global improvement of sleep disorders. In the zolpidem group, 67.9% (142/209) of patients were rated at least 'moderay improved' versus 61.6% (135/219) with zopiclone, zolpidem being at least as effective as zopiclone (90% confidence interval: -1.7, 14.3). Zolpidem (10 mg/day) and zopiclone (7.5 mg/day), administered at night, were compared in a 14-day, double-blind, equivalence trial on 479 chronic primary insomniacs (zolpidem, 231; zopiclone, 248) throughout Japan, with a 1-week follow-up to assess rebound. A total of 32 patients in the zolpidem group (13.9%) and 45 patients in the zopiclone group (18.1%) withdrew from the study before the end of the treatment.
