I've been taking zolpidem for insomnia since my husband passed nearly 5 years ago. Maybe my system has become immune to it but 1 tab just isn't working anymore. My insurance won't cover the 12.5 extended release which worked better so I 'm back to 10mg.
Before doubling your dosage, I would consult with prescribing doctor. Anything designed to put you to sleep has a chance of messing with your breathing if taken in excess. Check to make sure it is safe for you to do so, before you risk it. Explain your situation, he/she may even prescribe something else for you. Be safe, and Best wishes, ChelleKay
