Ambien as a date rape drug
How long can I be tested for the presence of ambien in my body? What test do I need to specifically request?
Ambien is a brand of zolpidem. Laboratory testing for zolpidem is not routinely done. Finding a laboratory that is capable of testing for zolpidem may be difficult.
Zolpidem would not be detectable in the blood more than 15 hours after it was taken.
