Is buying Ambien online dangerous?

It is not just a waste of money, but of serious harm to your body. Try picking vendors who are licensed ones from the U.S.[1]


Having witnessed the success of traditional pharmacies, and understanding the growing demand to meet the global requirements, online pharmacies paved the way into the pharmaceutical market. And this opportunity was right, as even the online vendors turned profitable.

This induced many fraudulent vendors to enter into this online market and make use of the scenario by cheating the buyers. They found all the ways to lure customers from genuine vendors, such as claiming to sell Ambien at cheap prices, with no prescription etc. These fake vendors do not follow any quality standards or do comply with safety regulations. These dangerous illegitimate online vendors are mostly based overseas.


It is easy to fall into the traps of these illegitimate online pharmacies. However, these are a few points if paid attention to can result in safe online purchase.

Do avoid those pharmacies that enable you to buy drugs without prescription, which actually requires a mandatory prescription. For that, it reflects their support for illegal activities. Then do not go behind pharmacies that give very cheap drugs, and mostly that won’t be of good quality. If there is no proper pharmacist available, do avoid them. And basically, those pharmacies outside the U.S are better to be skipped.[2]

Some online pharmacies provide the option of overnight delivery. But mostly, they will not dispatch the product overnight. It is necessary to check out the legitimacy of the online drugstore before buying Ambien online with overnight delivery.

Escape from these rogue pharmacies, and landing at a safer platform is good. The center for safe internet pharmacies should be intimated when you come across good or rouge ones, to assist other consumers in a safer marketplace.


Counterfeit drugs are often taken lightly, which is utterly foolish. What these counterfeit drugs can cause is really overwhelming.

These counterfeit drugs mostly look alike which are often sold under disguise. These have their main active ingredient altered to reduce its cost and thus make it a feature to lure customers.

The drug becomes mere empty pills when the active ingredient goes below the required level, but at the same time when it exceeds the limits, it turns out to be far more treacherous than imaginable.

This is not just it, these counterfeit drugs do a lot of malpractice in its production and ingredient part as they are not bound to any standard rules or policies that check on them.

Most of these counterfeit medicines have those substances like chalk powder, vitamin, sugar, etc. which add no benefit nor harm the user. The consumption of these pills may not be of harm to you, but just a waste of money.

However, there are few manufacturers who produce these counterfeit medicines with those substances such as paint and metals that are highly poisonous.[3]

Various researchers have found high poisonous ingredients like mercury and cement and even rat poison in certain counterfeit medicines that have caused life-threatening situations in the user.

Falling into the hands of these counterfeit drug dealers have to be avoided not just to save our lives in terms of direct health, but also indirectly. As it is found that, the counterfeit drug market is serving as the financing source for terrorism and various other organized crimes and human trafficking.


On actual grounds, an original Ambien drug can be differentiated from a counterfeit version only by a laboratory test. You can make sure of buying genuine Ambien online by doing the test, but unfortunately, the availability and facility to do these tests are very minimal.

When you wonder what else could serve to be indicators that will help to recognize the counterfeit pills, you can pay attention to the details in the packaging of the pills brought.

Firstly look at the ingredient list. Check for the actual amount of active ingredients required. Faulty pills have either very less or too much of the required active ingredient. Maybe the whole required ingredient list itself may be different.

Next, the packaging may have many errors in it. The spelling or grammatical errors will mostly be there. No proper information will be furnished in the cover. The whole labeling would be different and of less quality.[4]

Other things would be to that, these counterfeit drugs would not mention the expiration or manufacturing dates and have such faulty labeling in the packing.

The counterfeit drugs display totally different properties, side effects for the drug.


There are various legal constraints in buying Ambien for those residing in the U.S. These strict rules have to be adhered to and no personal reasons will help you escape from them. Even the licensed online pharmacies working with a base overseas can’t have access to sell the Ambien drugs to the U.S, as per the FDA regulations.[5]

However, there are certain provisions legally that enable the selling of Ambien. Majorly, if the drug imported is used for some serious health condition and such a remedy is not available within the U.S it can be imported. If the drug is not commercially advertised to the people in the U.S as a business commodity it can’t be sold. And when the authorities accept that the drug has no potential risk involved in the use of the drug, it is accepted for sale. And also the drug imported should not serve the user for not more than three months’ use, and it must be specified for personal use in written form by the user himself.

Generally, it is preferred to purchase Ambien from traditional pharmacies rather than buying it online.  If you are specific about buying Ambien online, then do validate that it is safe and a genuine one.
