I have been taking 10mg of Ambien for two weeks now and I can say I have been able to sleep but it was only due to the fact that I had bad insomnia. My insomnia lasted four days straight without sleep and I was prescribed this. I can say sleep is better then no sleep and I just want to know is there hope for me to able to sleep again without Ambien?
Ambien is most effective when you only use it when absolutely necessary.
It can cause tolerance which means that you will notice it's not working as well as when starting the Ambien.
If you feel like you can't get the necessary sleep, you may want to break it in half and see if the lower dose can still work.
Of course, consult your doc first!
Be careful with insomnia because it's found to cause increased BP and weight gain.
I'd first go online and learn healthy sleep habits.
Sleep studies have shown that if you don't follow good habits it will become chronic.
Are you under stress now?
Do you go to bed at the same time nightly?
Are you eating or exercising too late?
