I was on ambien (zolpidem) for five years prior and it stopped working. So I should have no problems trying it again after 14 month hiatus?

I was on ambien (zolpidem) for five years prior and it stopped working. So I should have no problems trying it again after 14 month hiatus?

Probably not.: I assume that you were taking generic Ambien; i.e., zolpidem. Thee are occasional generic products that are poorly made and do not provide the benefit. There are also various medical and psychiatric conditions that interfere with effectiveness of Ambien both then and now. Your MD can help answer these questions--better to do so now than have medication failure. ...Read more

Insomnia: Ambien (zolpidem) and similar sleeping meds are not intended for long-term use because of dependence and tolerance. Insomnia is a symptom with many possible causes. Try to find cause for insomnia. Also look at sleep hygiene and lifestyle factors. Try Melatonin meantime and read: https://sleepfoundation.org/insomnia/content/treatment for more info.
