I've tried everything to keep me asleep & nothing seems to work. My PCP is working on the combination of AmbienCR & Klonopin now.

Can leave you ' out of it' at night, if you wake up during the night it feels 'dreamy'.

I have experienced memory loss,nightmares, and next day hangover type feeling. Lunesta had less side effects; and worked better Unfortunately, my insurance will not cover it. The CR, is more effective, in my opinion, than the original Ambien formula. I will not ask my physician for a refill.

The drug does what is supposed to. It will provide you with 7-8 hours of sleep, but that is it. If you take it at 9:00 p.m. you will be up by 5:00 a.m. Also, I experienced the short term memory loss. After I would take the drug I could not remeber what happened the rest of the night. Also had trouble remebering the next day what happened.

Comment:
there is no comparison to other meds as far as I'm concerned. This does work faster on an empty stomach and also you do not need to go about daily business, such as talking on the phone, e-mailing, etc. It is meant to be taken for SLEEP so go to bed! No other med let me sleep more than 4 hrs.
