Comment:
I have alot of racing thoughts at night and sleep very little. When I started taking this medication I would take one and be asleep within 15 min, and I was told I have held conversations with people and don't remember them. I feel good when I wake up in the morning and only feel groogy for the first 15 min after waking up.

Comment:
I had two glasses of wine went to bed and then was told the next morning that I went downstairs, fixed a bowl of ice cream, watched a movie, held several conversations and can't remember any of it. Also, make sure you are ready to go to sleep when you take it b/c you will be catching zzz's very quickly.

I have to take this to sleep while on Lexapro. It works great at night, but I tend to be much sleepier during the day, especially in the morning.

Occasional problems falling asleep or staying asleep due to stress or too much mental activity. 5mg has encouraged easy sleep and awakening with no noticeable side effects.

After 20 years of insomnia, Ambien has without fail given me better rest after just 2 weeks. No side effects and easy to use.
