My schedule does not allow me to take Ambien on an empty stomach and it is thus ineffective, A psychiatrist had told me to take sublingual Ativan for faster onset of action during a panic attack. He said that even though it was not the S.L. formulation, it would (and did) work very quickly. Although Ambien is not a benzodiazepine, they share similar properties and I was hoping that this would hold true for Ambien as well-Edular is far beyond my price range. I was also wondering if the standard formulation of clonazepam (not the more costly sublingual varient) may be taken in this manner as well, so as to increase its otherwise slow onset of action during a panic attack, the cost of its sublingual varient is also prohibitive. Thank you for you time and consideration.

I was just given Ambien sublingual 3.5mg. They don't seem to do anything better than regular Ambien.
