Getting a good night’s rest is critical to feeling happy, alert, and productive the next day. For patients who struggle to naturally get the sleep they need, it can be hard to keep up with work, family, relationships, and health.
Fortunately, Ambien is a prescription medication to help patients fall asleep and stay asleep to get the rejuvenating sleep they need. Ambien works with hypnotic and sedative qualities that help your muscles, brain, and entire body relax and unwind for a better night of sleep.
Unlike many other sleep-aid pharmaceuticals, Ambien does not include any muscle relaxant effects. Because of this, the sense of “heaviness” the morning after taking many sleep-aids is absent. It can also be used to treat insomnia and other sleep disorders in physically weakened patients because of this attribute.
If your doctor agree has prescribed Ambien as the sleep solution you need, 5 mg to 6.25 mg of Ambien per day is recommended for women and 5 mg to 10 mg of Ambien per day is recommended for men. You can consult your doctor for accurate dosage based on your needs. Elderly patients and patients who want less than eight hours of sleep a night are not recommended to take Ambien in higher doses.
