What is Ambien?

When this happens, Ambien affects the area of the brain responsible for balancing the chemicals and it is forced to rebalance them. Ambien has also been used to treat anxiety, which could be caused by stress or a side effect of insomnia. There are two different types of Ambien available for prescription; one type helps you fall asleep faster by releasing the drug immediately into your system and the other helps you stay asleep longer by releasing doses of the drug at different times by coating them in time release layers.
