Ambien withdrawal duration can vary from person to person, depending on factors such as how long the person has been taking Ambien, the dose they were taking, and their individual physiology. Generally, Ambien withdrawal symptoms can begin within a few hours to a few days after the last dose and may last for several weeks to months. The most intense withdrawal symptoms usually last for the first few days to a week, with symptoms gradually decreasing in intensity thereafter. It is important to seek medical supervision when discontinuing Ambien or any other medication, as sudden withdrawal can be dangerous and potentially life-threatening.
