History of Ambien

 

Ambien is a drug that was first created by G. D. Searle & Company, a mid-sized Chicago

pharmaceutical company, which was first started by a U.S. Civil War veteran, Gideon Daniel

Searle. After working at drug stores, he started a partnership in Omaha, Nebraska in 1888,

moved to Chicago, dissolved the partnership and incorporated G. D. Searle & Company in 1905.

Passed down through the family, the company was sold to Monsanto Company in 1985. The

bulk laxative, Metamucil, was created by G. D. Searle & Company, as was the motion-sickness

medication, Dramamine, the artificial sweetener, NutraSweet, and the pain medication, Celebrex.

 

Donald Rumsfeld, the U.S. defense secretary under both Presidents Gerald Ford and George

W. Bush, was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of G. D. Searle & Company between 1977

and 1985. It was during this period of time that the company’s research department developed a

medication for insomnia called Ambien.

 

Eventually, the U.S. patent for zolpidem was held by the French pharmaceutical company,

Sanofi-Aventis, which is based in Paris. In 2007, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

gave the approval of generic versions of zolpidem to 13 different pharmaceutical companies. A

number of UK pharmaceutical companies manufacture generic versions of zolpidem. Generic versions

of the South African version of the drug are made by the pharmaceutical company,

Sandoz, and in Germany, the drug company, Ratiopharm, makes generic zolpidem.
