better but i've also heard some weird things about it too. any comments or suggestions?
I've taken both of these medications and I've found that ambien CR 12.5 mg works the best for me. It's extended release so it helps me stay asleep through the night. I've also found that ambien always works better on an empty stomach. I've tried lunesta and it worked, but it left the most horrible taste in my mouth that never went away until days after I stopped taking it. It wasn't worth it at all. If I could go back in time though I would have never started taking any sleep med when I started having problems sleeping. There are so many things you do and change before you have to take a pill that your brain will rely on the be able to fall asleep from then on. I cannot sleep at all when I don't take ambien now.
