Zolpidem is not for me.

I hav been prescribed it for long time. Atypical insomnia, PTSD, mixed anxiety depression disorder, no as I type this I already took 20 mg and still barely want to close my eyes. It's not very effective medication and after 2-3 hours I wake up and I am in square 1. I never tried brand it was always generic, maybe brand would work better? I know my insurance is stubborn and will. Or cover medication brand if it's available in generic form. It's so sad I wasn't to sleep!

Ambien Works TOO Long for Me!

I have struggled with insomnia for most of my adult life. When I tried Ambien, it worked wonders to put me to sleep and keep me asleep, but then 8 hours later, I still slept. It took about 12 hours to feel normal again. Just too long acting for me.

Zolpidem is strange for me...

Most of my experiences with Ambien have pleasant, and they worked as they should have on most of those occasions. I used to read the reports of sleep walking and laugh internally, me believing that it is simply not possible to do. Well, I found out one night. I trashed my bedroom up pretty badly, and when I woke up I was on my hands and knees on the floor of my bedroom! This only happened one time, out of literally hundreds, so it's just an anomaly. However, there is always the issue of taking the meds, and they simply not working for it's intended purpose. It's pretty easy to stay awake on Ambien if you aren't really tired when you took it anyway. Overall, I like Ambien for the simple reason that I've had more positive experiences than negatives...
