I have had chronic trouble sleeping since a car accident last Valentines Day. Ambien helps me to fall asleep fast and feel some what refreshed the next day, as long as I got 8 hours sleep. I am so thankful for this drug. My doctor however does not want me to continue usng it daily. I guess it's better not to sleep !!!

Comment:
I've tried countless other sleep meds and this is the only one that works for me. It takes about an hour to put me to sleep and I sleep about six hours on 5 mg; my doctor won't give me more than 5mg tabs and is cutting me back to 60 tabs for 90 days. I can't convince her that I am not having side effects from this med!
