It can not be a quick taper as I also have hypertension and seizures. I just want to bring this beast under control! If you use herbs, teas, exercise, please let me know! I used Ambien for over 20 years at 10 mg nightly due to working night shift and had to sleep during the day. I didn't even know of what happened on 9/11 until my husband woke me up after 4 pm that day! Thank you!
