Comment:
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.

I have used it for about 6 months, but usually less than once a week. My symptoms have been waking up during the night and thinking too much to get back to sleep. I use this when I know I need to be sharp the next day.

Comment:
Worked well at first, but over time lost effectiveness. Now take trazodone 100 mg. along with the Ambien CR. They work faster on an empty stomach than a full one.
