Hi Gustavo. According to the DSM IV clinical criteria for addiction, which outlines the framework for Ambien addiction symptoms, symptoms of Ambien addiction include:

– increased Ambien doses administered more often than medically suggested
– continued use of Ambien for non-medical purposes despite negative consequences in social and private life
– not being able to stop taking Ambien
– experiencing urge and cravings for use
– experiencing withdrawal symptoms each time when Ambien use is stopped or doses are significantly lowered
