Good morning! I used to be prescribed ambien, a.d now I am prescribed ambien CR, and I can assure u neither one are narcotic, and neither show on drug tests. I think I asked the same question when I first got prescribed ambien. I think that particular question is what introduced me to this wonderful support group and great group of friends and fam I have gotten know. Good luck, but u will be fine.
Ambien provided the following information*. Once you are on the site (see the link below), scroll down until you find the Patient Counseling Information. Under "What is Ambien?", you will find a box with this information.

Here is the information about AMBIEN:

Selling or giving away Ambien may harm others, and is against the law.
