and do the both work alike.
XANAX Tablets contain alprazolam.
Xanax is part of a group of medicines called benzodiazepines. These drugs have several effects on the body, including:
* Reducing anxiety
* Causing sleepiness
* Relaxing muscles
* Stopping seizures
* Impairing short-term memory.
All medicines in this category can have these effects to some degree, depending on the specific benzodiazepine that is being taken. They work in the brain by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical that is naturally calming. GABA can slow down or stop certain nerve signals in the brain. This is why Xanax and other benzodiazepines are known as mild tranquilizers, sedatives, or central nervous system depressants (CNS depressants).
Ambien (zolpidem tartrate) is a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic of the imidazopyridine class and is available in 5mg and 10mg strength tablets for oral administration.
Ambien is part of a class of medications called sedative/hypnotics, which are known more commonly as sleep medicine. Based on clinical studies, when compared to people who did not take Ambien, people who took Ambien:
* Fell asleep faster
* Slept longer
* Had higher-quality sleep
* Had fewer awakenings.
Take care, hope the above info is of help?
