Insomnia or lack of sleep is never a desirable thing. This is especially considering the effects on the performance of an individual at work or even at school. It is on this basis that drugs have been invented to take care of such scenarios and induce sleep. One of the most commonly used drugs is Ambien.
Ambien is a prescription drug used in the treatment of insomnia, as an anticonvulsant as well as in relaxing muscles. It is actually a brand name for Zolpidem, a sedative-hypnotic whose effects are very similar to those of Xanax or Valium. It is actually known to be very effective in inducing sleep working in just about fifteen minutes.
