Comment:
I have been taking Ambien CR 12.5 mg for almost two years. It works in 15 to 30 minutes and I get about seven hours sleep. I don't dream and when I wake up in the morning its as if someone snapped their fingers and I'm awake. Very unnatural feeling.

Was told by my PCP to take 12.5 mg's it worked so well I cut it down to 6.25 mg's and still have no problems sleeping and feel great in the a.m. And yes it works very quickly. Normal ambian wasn't working as well and like others I found myself awake after about 2-3 hrs. Sweet dreams all

In the past I have used Ambien 5mg and when my tolerance went up, 10mg. I used the 10mg dose for several years in college and afterward with great success. After a brief period with no sleep medications I was prescribed Ambien CR 12.5mg. This medicine works great, IF you follow your doctors instructions. Takind it on an empty stomach works best, and you must take it literally right before bed. ... Show Full Comment

I still have trouble falling asleep sometimes and I wake up during the night a time or two, but at least with Ambien CR I can fall back asleep and not lay awake for hours.
