I had my regular doctor's appointment on Monday. I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping... not falling asleep, but staying asleep. I will wake several times in the night, then not be able to fall back to sleep. I take Topamax and asked my doctor if that could be the root of my sleep problem. He said "No, it's your "Chick-brain" worrying about stuff". (He wasn't being rude, we have a friendly relationship and I see him pretty often these days) He suggested trying Ambien. I guess my concern is that the Topamax already slows me down that the Ambien will make me a zombie in the morning (usually my best time of the day, even when I don't get much sleep at night).
Has anyone tried Ambien? What's been your experience? What are the plusses and minuses?
I really need to get some sleep. I'm so tired all day.
