I believe that your question is referring to Ambien. Ambien is a sleep aid that should only be used temporarily for insomnia. You should only take Ambien if it has been prescribed by your medical doctor or nurse practitioner.

Have you tried alternatives methods combat insomnia? Here is a link from emedicine that has great information about the causes of insomnia and how you may be able treat it without medications:

And to learn more about Ambien:
