My Dr prescribed Ambien CR several months ago, two part two color pill..The drug store now has sub Zolpidem CR 12.5 a dark blue pill saying it's generic and is the same... The Ambien had quick sleep producing effects and the Zolpidem doesn't come close to the Ambien... Is there a difference or is it my imagination... Phil

Hello calcoca. Well hard to say. They are almost identical in thier makeup. But and its been proven some many times, that an individual, having taken a generic versus non-generic will swear that one doesn't do half the job that the other one did. You're correct. You are one of the people, that is extremely (body) sensitive, and has picked up on the difference and your body is saying give me the ambien. best wishes to you.
