Zolfed is marketed as a Generic form of of Ambien which is Zolipidem. Hence the identical name. The original manufacturer is unknown, but like many drugs bought online from oversees (mostly India and Mexico), are not safe or trustworthy, frequently very cheep though. I would discourage your friend from using it. You also have to be careful as some of these medications are marketed as "Canadian" to gain credibility in their claims, but they are shipped from South East Asian countries.
