Is ambien and ambien cr the same product?

They're made of the same ingredient but they have different ways of distribution the drug. Regular Ambien is dissolved all at once and stops working after a few hours. It will work better for people that have a hard time getting to sleep and don't have a problem staying asleep. Ambien CR is a controlled release drug so it's for people who have a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. That's the difference between the two. Hope this helps!
