 1  insomnia Symptoms: horrendous spikes in anxiety, terrible night itches, burning gums and tongue (trigeminal neuralgia spiked), increased sinus congestion, pounding heart, jitteriness, waking up feeling "wired" -- in other words, I was having an allergic reaction, which occurred when my pharmacy switched me to an oblong peach generic zolpidem. When I finally pinpointed the peach zolpidem, and switched to brand Ambien, the symptoms receded within three days, and now, a week later I'm getting back on keel with anxiety way down, no itches, sinuses clearing, neuralgia calmer. Thank heavens. I had thought the problem was with other drugs prescribed for me to counteract the symptoms I was experiencing -- drugs for anxiety, neuralgia, sinus congestion -- so I quit them, which lessened my symptoms, but it wasn't until I got off the peach pills completely that my symptoms began to disappear. Do not take the peach generic. It's awful! F 73 4 weeks

 3  insomnia brain fog; back pain; itching My insurance company forced me to get the generic of Ambien, manufactured by Teva. I don't believe it is as effective as the name brand. It did put me to sleep for ~5 hours in a row the 2 nights that I took it. On the second night, I took it in the 6 p.m. hour & slept until ~11:30 p.m. I then stayed awake until ~2 a.m., when I took another 5 mg. That only put me to sleep for 3 hours. After a period of clarity in the early morning, I felt spacy, anxious, emotional & had aches & pains most of the day. It feels like my left eye is seeing from a different depth than my right eye, as though I am about to get a migraine. F 45 2 days

If you have trouble falling asleep, it helps you fall asleep faster, so you can get a better night's rest. Zolpidem belongs to a class of drugs called sedative-hypnotics. It acts on your brain to produce a calming effect. This medication is usually limited to short treatment periods of 1 to 2 weeks or less.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
