Ambien Removal sign now

This is a formal request that the FDA remove the prescription drug Ambien from current U.S. markets. Ambien(also known as Zolpidem)is a perscription sleep aid for those with insomnia. However, side effects of the medication cause more harm than good. In October of 2006, 30 year old Alan P. Cooke of Long Beach, MS. drowned after 'blacking out' while swimming alone in the middle of the night. Toxicology results have reported that Ambien was found in his system at the time of death. Eyewitness reports also claim that Mr. Cooke was seen taking Ambien earlier that evening.

Fox News reports that "Zombie drivers motorists driving under the influence of the popular prescription sleeping pill Ambien, possibly while sleepwalking and unaware they are doing so are a rising threat on U.S. roads.

According to the NY Times, ten state toxicology labs that test for the presence of the drug rate Ambien among the top 10 drugs found in impaired drivers. In Wisconsin, Ambien was identified in the bloodstreams of 187 drivers arrested between 1999 and 2004, the newspaper reported. In Washington State, Ambien was found in 78 impaired drivers arrested in 2005, up from 56 the previous year.Following their arrests, many of the Ambien drivers claim to have no recollection of getting behind the wheel, according to the report. In many of the cases the drug appears to have been taken incorrectly, combined with alcohol or other drugs or taken in overdose quantities; several of the cases suggest, however, that even when the drug is used properly, a sleepwalking side effect may lead to sleep driving, the Times reported."
