yes after two yrs, your body has become tolerant of the medication if it is not giving you the desired effect anymore, goto your doctor and have him increase your dosage.

Hey oldgrammy,

Yes you can build a tolerance to Ambien. In fact it is recommended for short term use. The maximum recommended dose is 10 mgs/ day. If you are having troubles sleeping please talk to the prescribing doctor before changing the dosage.

Best wishes,
