I have been prescribed Ambien 10 mg and usually this make people fall asleep very quickly sometimes even hallucinate and do strange things... I remember taking one many years ago and I did hallucinate but now it doesn't seem to be doing a thing, I don't really get drowsy or dizzy or anything. Only sometimes will it get me to fall asleep. Isn't it one of the most potent and best sleeping aids? I heard there is Ambien CR which not only helps to fall asleep but keep you asleep longer. Those few times that it does put me to sleep I am awake 2-3 hrs later... I don't know what to do.. nothing seems to work... any suggestions?
Hello. I suggest a benzodiazepine sleeping drug such as Halcion, Restoril or Dalmane all are effective hypnotics. Regards pledge
Yea try it. It might help u. I finally fell asleep at 2 this morning but I never heard my alarm to get up & get my kids ready 4 school... I got lucky my boyfriend called 2 make sure I was up. I hope u find somethng...
You are not the only one that Ambien use to work for. I think I have figured out what the problem is. My doctor prescribed me 20mg and it worked better, but this is not recomended by most doctors. I realized that once Ambien became in generic form, that is when it did not work as well. Generic pharmaceutical companies vary. They only have to match the MAIN ingredient by 70% by FDA standards. It seems that some generic companies do not even do that. I picked my monthly prescription up from a different pharmacy and actually was falling asleep while standing up. It was like the old ambien. I now only have to take 10 mg of Ambien with this Generic. Thank GOD I found this out.
