I have taken Ambien 10 mg for approx 6 weeks. Recently started taking Ambien 5 mg for about 1 week. Would like to stop this altogether. I feel I have become dependent on Ambien. One Pharmacist said that I should not be physically dependent on Ambien after 6 weeks, but might be psychologically dependent on it. I think I need it. But, If If don't take it, I don't fall asleep.

What;s the best way to get off of Ambien? Thank you.
