Comment:
I still suffer from chronic sleeplessness. I take 8 mg of this drug along with other medications with sedative side effects and still cannot sleep more than 3-4 hours at a time. The past week I been up almost all night. I may take a 2-3 hour nap during the afternoon depending on ability to fall asleep. Is this the recommended dosage for this medication and are increases in dosage commom?

First time I took I fell asleep but woke up couple hrs later and could not fall back to sleep then next morning noticed my face was swollen. Second time, same thing occurred but my hands also swollen. Have to contact Dr. to let him know what happened to me and see if Ambien would be better for me.

I have had problems falling asleep for months, this has done the trick. I haven't had the side effects as with other sleep medicines I tried. It took me about a week to really work, but well worth the wait!
