Ambien Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

This self-guided assessment is created to help you evaluate the level of your Ambien use, but this quiz is not intended to replace a proper, clinical diagnosis of an Ambien addiction. You can use the results of this assessment as a guide to help you determine if your Ambien use is problematic, recognize the signs and symptoms of an Ambien use disorder and seek treatment for Ambien addiction if necessary. Review your results with your physician or call The Recovery Village to speak with a representative about your Ambien use disorder and the options for treatment programs.

Am I Addicted to Ambien?

This quiz is a self-guided assessment that has been created from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders which is the standard criteria for diagnosing mental health and substance use disorders. This assessment contains “yes” or “no” questions relative to your Ambien use during the last 12 months. If you’re looking for answers about an alcohol use disorder, this quiz does not contain questions about alcohol abuse, you can take this quiz for alcoholism instead. If you're concerned about the prescription drug use of a loved one, take the quiz Is My Loved One Addicted To Prescription Drugs?

Based on your Ambien use, please answer “yes” or “no” to each question. In the past 12 months:

Have you used Ambien for non-medical purposes?
Have you continued to take Ambien despite knowing the health, legal and social consequences?
Have you felt the need to use Ambien to feel normal?
Have you increasingly taken larger amounts of Ambien in order to feel the same effects?
Have you visited multiple doctors in order to obtain more Ambien?
Have you borrowed money in order to pay for Ambien?
Have you experienced fatigue, mood swings or anxiety upon reducing or stopping your Ambien use?
Have you stopped engaging in hobbies because of Ambien use?
Have you experienced intense cravings for Ambien?
Has your Ambien use resulted in relationship problems?
Have you experienced lightheadedness, body numbness or uncontrollable shaking after using Ambien?
