Q: How do I know that the Ambien (zolpidem) that I’m purchasing online will be high quality?

A: As mentioned in a post about finding high quality prescription medications online, there are a few things to look out for when evaluating an online pharmacy. But the most important thing to understand is that approved online pharmacies are shipping you drugs made by the same manufacturers of the brand name drugs sold in the United States.

Most stateside pharmaceutical companies have their drugs manufactured overseas and online pharmacies source their products from those same manufacturers. So, there is usually little to worry about.

To verify that a product an online pharmacy is carrying is indeed made by a high quality manufacturer, look for detailed product information. Many times, you’ll see something like this.

Q: I’m looking at a drug that is described as zolpidem but isn’t called Ambien. Is it the same thing? Will it work the same way as Ambien?

A: As mentioned in an earlier post about buying ambien online, Ambien is simply a brand name of zolpidem that is sold in the United States. But, zolpidem is the technical name of the drug. When buying from an online pharmacy, you may receive zolpidem under other brand names, but it will work the same as Ambien because it is in fact the same drug.

Here is a partial list of brand names that zolpidem is sold as:

  • Ambien
  • Edluar
  • Intermezzo
  • Stilnox
  • Zolpidem ATB
  • Zolpidem LPH

Q: I’ve heard of online pharmacy scams before. How do I know that the pharmacy I’m purchasing from is legitimate?
