sometimes I take my ambien and 2 hours later I might still be awake. could I take another half of one? I can't keep doing this. I can't get sleep and therefore, I stay tired all the time.
Hi, it really isn't recommended to exceed 10mg per day. This is the ceiling dose, with no exceptions. Your doctor may be able to prescribe you an additional medication to help aid your sleep?
Are you following all the guidelines for taking Ambien? Dark room, no TV, only taking it when you are IN BED, ready to sleep? Going to bed each night at the same time, getting up at the same time each morning? Or are you taking it and then walking around doing things waiting for it to "kick in?" Because it doesn't work that way. Perhaps use a sleep mask if you can't get your room dark enough. If you follow these guidelines, I think you will get the results you are wanting.
