Ambien is very good for helping me fall asleep, but not staying asleep. I told my Dr of this & he said to try Ambien CR. There is a generic for regular Ambien, but not for Ambien CR.

Comment:
Worked very well for getting me to sleep. Staying asleep after a few hours was the problem. Supplementing with Benadryl seemed to help but dried me out. I tried CR but it didn't work for me.
