How to know if someone is addicted to Ambien?

Although Ambien is generally taken to treat sleep disorders and is not considered addictive when taken as directed, there have been several reports of abuse and dangerous intoxication over the years. Ambien can be habit-forming, meaning that the person who takes it may feel like they rely on the substance to treat insomnia or sleep disturbances, or to manage their life. While they do not seek intoxication, they may become anxious if they have to stop taking the drug.
People who feel like they rely on Ambien may escalate their dose, struggle with tolerance to the substance, and feel anxious or panicked when they cannot take the drug. They may be in denial that they need or crave the substance. They may feel ashamed of their stuggle.
