Comment:
I have tried several other sleep medications, but Ambien works the best. I fall asleep fast and stay asleep for 6-8 hours. Ambien CR did not work for me. Nor did Luestra or generic Ambien.

Ambien CR will give you 6 huors of quality sleep. I'm a little drousy in the morning but much sharper and alert than without a good night's sleep

After taking for two weeks, I can now sleep regularly for at least a 4-hour block, a few times six-hour block. I was waking every 1-3 hours every night.

Comment:
Even when taking only half a 5mg pill, I have trouble the next morning coming out of a fog. I feel a pretty strong Ambien hangover. It also causes drug induced sleep walking. Both my husband and I have gone places (yes, in a car sometimes) and have no memory of the event. I do not like this medication at all.
