How does Ambien work?

As you know, generic Ambien works simply – it makes you sleepy. It actually works very fast – within 15-30 minutes you’ll be asleep. From the scientific point of view it’s more complicated. First of all, Ambien is an imidazopyridine derivative. It’s known to be a nonbenzodiazepine.

Insomnia treatment

The main component of Ambien affects the natural brain chemical known as gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABA to put it shorter. GABA transmits the signals in the brain. These to components work together in order to lower the level of electrical activities in areas of the brain that are responsible for sleeping. When those specific electrical activities are lowered, people fall asleep. That’s how Ambien works.
