Ambien is a prescription medicine that is used for the short-term treatment of insomnia in adults. It is primarily used to help people with insomnia fall asleep faster; it does not have any substantial effect on the duration or maintenance of sleep. Zolpidem tartrate is the generic version of Ambien. The average retail price of Ambien can be up more than $1,100 or more depending on the quantity and dosage prescribed. You may be able to save on this cost when you use a free Single Care Ambien coupon. Ask the pharmacist at your local Pharmacy to run your coupon card to compare pricing.
