A 55-year-old female asked:
Is there any new sleep aid that is non-addictive beside ambien (zolpidem) and melotonia?

Misinformed?: Ambien (zolpidem) is one of the most addictive medications ever developed and sold as a sleeping aid. The more we learn about this product the more many of us wish there was no such thing. It is thought that taking it seven days in a row leads to addiction.
