Sleep :-): Most of the side effects are dose-dependent and related to your central nervous system: sedation, dizziness or light-headedness, headache, "drugged" feeling -- and sometimes confusion and memory loss as well. I have also known patients who had sleepwalking with Ambien (zolpidem) -- which can be disconcerting depending on what activities are done in that state. ...Read more

Many: Zolpidem or Ambien (zolpidem) is a short acting sleeping med which often doesn't make someone tired. So you need to go to bed right after taking.
