IS Ambien a Benzo????

Posted by Ian Wright on February 14, 2002 at 20:07:05:

I have seen on this site Ambien described as a Benzodiazepine... Is this the fact?

On other sites it's described as NOT being so..

http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/zolpid.htm and on the following site http://www.ambien.com/pdf/ambienPhysician.pdf it is described Spcifically as "a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic of the imidazopyridine class".... This site is the manufacturers site.

I would like to think information given out by web sites is accurate.... Clearly in this case something is amiss and it would be good to clear it up.....
