I have been on Ambien for close to 8 years now, once in awhile the pharmacist will give me the Generic brand (Zolphidem Tartrate). I've used it before and didn't have any problems but this last supply... I may get one night a week that I really slept. Again tonight, 3rd night this week, I've taken it and an hour later I am still wide awake. I am taking the 10mg tablet and was thinking of taking another so I can get to sleep.
