How to Get Ambien Free Samples

Free samples are available for both Ambien® and Ambien CR. Please note that some healthcare insurance providers may only cover the prescription for regular Ambien® due to the fact that Ambien CR is more expensive.

  • Patients who are prescribed Ambien CR may be able to find printable coupons on the official drug website from time to time. For example, the manufacturer has offered a free 4-night supply of the drug via online coupon. If coupons are available, they may be printed and taken to a patient's doctor for the free samples. Registration may be required to access coupons on the Ambien CR site.
  • Free Ambien® samples may also be available through a local pharmacy for those patients who already have a prescription for the medication. Patients interested in free samples can ask their pharmacist when they go to fill their prescription.
  • Additional savings for Ambien® and AmbienCR may also be available in the form of Ambien coupons or a Patient Assistant Program offered by Sanofi.
