Can You Get Addicted to Ambien?
Ambien is an addictive substance, especially to people who are more susceptible to developing chemical dependencies on substances. For some people, taking an Ambien prescription for just two weeks can be a long enough time to begin developing an addiction. Larger doses will have an increased risk of causing addiction. Before taking an Ambien prescription, you should first be warned by your medical provider that it can be addictive.
What Can Ambien Addiction Do to You?
Ambien is a sedative-hypnotic drug that is meant to make its users fall asleep. Even though it has been tested and refined in laboratories and it earned approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it can still be dangerous.
Ambien abuse can cause a variety of health side effects, such as:
- Anxiety and depression
- Suicidal thoughts
- Memory loss
- Chronic exhaustion
- Intense night terrors
- Worsened insomnia
Severe cases of Ambien addiction can cause throat and sinus damage and infections. If you have used Ambien and are now experiencing pain in your nose, throat, or sinuses, then you should speak with your doctor right away. We do not recommend stopping the use of any prescription medication without talking to your doctor.
Signs of Ambien Addiction
How can you know that you are addicted to Ambien? The first sign of Ambien addiction is usually that the drug has become noticeably less effective. If you have ever taken more than you are prescribed to fall asleep, then you might be developing an unsafe dependence on the drug.
Other signs of Ambien addiction can include:
- Feeling an urge to take Ambien at an irregular time
- Feeling unhappy when you haven’t taken Ambien recently
- Buying Ambien through illegal channels
- Realizing you have lost memory of certain events
