I’m taking zolpidem,I don’t sleep all night only three to four hours a night..I told the Dr he put me on Trazodone for sleep..He told me to take half of the pill,100mg if that didn’t work take a whole,if that didn’t work take one and half etc,up to 300mg..The half made me feel funny and sick to my stomach..Has anyone on here ever took Trazodone and dis it work for you?
Hi!! I started with 1- 5mg ambien at night for the past month and a half. 1st day I slept like a baby. Woke up energized. The next few weeks were a disaster. I work up every night around 3:30-4am each time. Wide awake!!! At this point I'm extremely thirsty, grab a late snack and then want to fall asleep. I don't want to snack that late at night. Just want to sleep. Finally tossing and turning btwn 430-5. In pain and numbness with my arms and legs annoying me I Finally asleep. Unfortunately my son wakes up,between, 540-6am everyday. So I finally need to get up for the day and am tired and groggy until I get a coffee in or my morning meds. Migraine meds and stuff that kinda wake me up. Just saw my Dr. The other day. He increased ambien to 10mg. First night tonight. Hopefully it helps better. He also suggested medicinal marijuana. I'll keep you posted on the 10mg dose. And see if it helps or not.
I have taken 2 10mg Ambien for over 3 yrs every night. I am 53 yrs old and can’t sleep at all with out taking it. Though I do have to say after three years it only helps me sleep a few hours a night.
10mg is NOT the max dose; I work in a pharmacy and they have higher does not sure why they told you ten was the max
NO! I made this mistake last night and here was my experience (I'm female 14 150lbs btw)
I was hallucinating that things around the room were people or more like entities and there was this pile of clothes on my bed and I was afraid to go on that side of the bed for some reason. I was saying weird stuff out loud. Almost like I was dreaming out loud. I felt as though I couldn't walk but finally I got up and stumbled into the bathroom. I immediately threw up all over the room. Was trying to scrub some vomit off my leg but it would not come off (I think this was a hallucination) well I went in and told my grandparents and they helped me out (cleaned the bathroom, got me some new pjs, and let me sleep in their bed. I was crying quite a bit and seeing double. I also could not walk right. I was stumbling.
DO NOT DO THIS!!
My doc is pretty adamant that I only need 1x10mg of Ambien, but that gives me only 4 hrs of sleep. I have serious insomnia and sleep apnea. How do you get your doctor (those of you who were able to) to give you 20mg per night? I might need to change my doc to someone that is willing to give me 20mg per night. I just cant function on 4 hrs of sleep every night.
Any recommendations in the SF bay area? Thanks a lot!!
I take 30mg at night. I'm 18 and weigh 150 and that's fine
You'll be completely fine! My first time taking ambien 10mg I washed it down with a glass of wine and slept great for 3 hrs as expected.
Now, I took 2 10mg with some wine and feel great. Will sleep like a rock I'm sure, without the grogginess ;)
I am 44 yrs old & weigh approx 105lbs & I've suffer from severe anxiety, insomnia is the worst & I have adhd... I take 1mg Xanax 4 times a day (prn) & 2 10 mg ambient every night at bed time. I do not take my Adderall at the moment, but I've been on these medications since 2001. This past Father's Day my ex husband (biological father of my only child) & his 2nd wife in which we've had a good relationship to violence & on Nov.21 will be the 2nd anniversary of the death of my husband of 21 yrs (he was 49 @ the time of his death) & my anxiety & insomnia has gotten worse since his death. Back in April 2015 just 4 months after his death I stopped all my meds & paid dearly...
I went 5 straight days with 0% sleep (I was taking my ADHD rx) needless to say I got behind the wheel of my brand new 2015 Toyota RAV4 & was in an accident (1st & only I've ever had) I had a clean driving record & I do not drink, but I was given a dui. Do not take more rx than prescribed & don't stop taking without the help of your doctor.
I hope sharing my story helps others who find themselves in a similar situation.
I had this same question Ambien does not work for me at all I take Soma as well as Norco and I'm afraid to take 20 mg of Ambien with the other drugs but I have insomnia so bad I need help as well , I have heard Trazodone works great . Were you able to figure something out about the Ambien ?
I take another full 10 ambien when the first wears off, and then seroquel given to me do to bipolar. And sleep like a rock. When I do my morning workout after, I'm all fine but I am groggy waking up.
I believe you can take up to 30 12.5mg quick release Ambien per month.
Wow what drug is it for I googled it and stuff like it's kind of different .
Hi. I just thought id let u know what works very well for myself. I take 10mg ambient and 50mg of seroquil before bed and sleep a sound 7 hrs.
I've been taking two ambiens per night for years now. It works every night. I can't sleep because I'm in chronic pain and anything for pain gives me a migraine. So I need something to sleep. Nothing else works.
