Zolpidem - will ambien show up as a benzo?

Answers (1)

2 Dec 2011

Ambien is a sleep medication called Zolpidem and is intended for the treatment of insomnia. It is a nonbenzodiazepine sedative hypnotic and does not provide false positive screen results of the standard enzyme multiplied immunoassay technique (most often used for drug screening in urine) and does not confirm positive for Benzos in confirmation by gas or liquid chromatography.

However, please do reconfirm it by seeking medical advice, take care.

Best wishes!
