A oval pill that has E on one side and 79 on other side

A 9.0mm oval white pill with the imprint E on the front, and 79 on the back of it is 10mg of Zolpidem tartrate (made by Aurobindo Pharma), sold under the trade name Ambien.

Zolpidem tartrate is a miscellaneous anxiolytic, sedative and hypnotic that is used to treat insomnia. There is a low risk of abuse with this drug.

This prescription-only medication may pose a risk to an unborn fetus, and should be used only under a doctor's supervision.

In Florida, a corrections officer and his wife were both arrested this week for fraudulently obtaining prescription drugs including zolpidem tartrate.
