    Ambien CR 12.5mg works much better for me at getting me to sleep quickly and letting me sleep through the night than regular Ambien or the CR 6.25mg. However, if I take the 12.5mg more than twice a week I plunge into a deep depression, I can feel it coming over me in waves. Haven't taken this in several months, took it two nights in a row as I desperately needed sleep and the Rozerem I tried ... Show Full Comment

    I took this for a few days. I do not like the way I feel the next day as if I were on drugs and I also had nightmares. Will not take this again. I would rather have a restless night. I am glad I got the 7 days free.

    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.
