Hi Lyndarae,
It's what I get to take when I travel so I don't roam in other's houses at night.
I like it, just make sure to use it when you can really try to sleep 6-8 hours.
If you have problems with major groggy the next day, they have a new one with a half life of Ambien.
I hope you get some rest.

You poor thing,
I just got tired of feeling like the doc. had an attitude. I didn't feel good and didn't want to start a fight with the one guy that was suppose to help.
taking hubby gave the doc. a better understanding about the things I wouldn't say.
i'm so sorry your hurting. If I were there, we could just talk all night. You stand firm with the doc.,,,,,,,,,,,pain issues must be dealt with. Sleep issues not an option, deal with them.........i finally cried and told mine."I want quality of life here!'
Please let me know how it goes.
((((((hug and prayers)))))) to ya .

I call Ambien "The Evil Drug" because my experiences with it have been really bad. I took it for only a couple of nights, as did my husband. We both had horrible nightmares, couldn't wake up the next day and had hallucinations. It was a very short lived drug in our house. A friend of mine, the only other person I know personally who's been on Ambien had horrible experiences too. He would wake up and find groceries in his fridge he didn't remember buying. Found out, he'd been waking up at night and going to the store. One morning, he awoke to find his couch cushions missing. He found them burned to a crisp in the fireplace. He didn't remember doing that either. So yeah, I'm not a big fan. I do hear good stories from people online so it does help some people. Just thought I'd give you my experiences....from the dark side. :wink:
