In brief: Ambien (zolpidem) effects

When taking ambien, (zolpidem) users should plan to sleep for a minimum of 7-8 hours and go to bed immediately after taking the pill.
If you wake before 7-8 hours then you may experience memory problems, grogginess, and tiredness. Otherwise, when used correctly most users feel they have slept adequately.
