    Ambien is not technically classified as opiate based or as a narcotic. But it acts in the body similarly and can be habit forming.

    Ambien (generic is Zolpidem) is not an opiate. It’s classified as a non-benzodiazepine. Valium and Xanax and the such are benzodiazepines. Non-benzo’s are called that because they affect you similarly and on the same part of the brain, but they aren’t in that class of drugs based on their chemical structure. They are less habit forming and have less side effects. SO, NO you will be fine.
