Good for sleep


I cut the zolpidem 10 mg into small pieces. With my sleep cycle, I wake up every two hours or so. I'll take a little piece and then-back to sleep. Works well (my version of Ambien CR). I do not take any after 8 hours of sleep. I have no side effects. There is tolerance, when I stop taking the medication, there are several sleepless nights. Sleep is important to restore the body, without it the risk of stroke, heart attack, and metabolic disorder increases dramatically, so it is valuable for sleep and health.

Ambien

I have used ambien for years. I think it is the best one for me, but maybe not for others. I wish someone could give me a site or two that is legit so I can purchase more.

Zolpidem

I began waking every hour thru the night. Explained this to my doctor & he suggested my taking Zolpidem 10mg. I had heard horror stories about this medicine including horrible dreams, sleepwalking, even driving a car to MacDonalds not realizing she had left the house. My doctor assured me if I took it the way it was written & stayed away from all alcohol, I would be fine. I was. I take 1 tab at 11pm & am asleep by 11:20pm. It has been the same for 21/2 years. I've had insomnia since my teens. I tried drinking to fall asleep, no good. I took halcion which worked for 2 weeks then insomnia came back. I did feel a ill groggy the first two days after beginning this med. but has been great ever since.

Hit or miss; stick to the extended release

I've used Ambien for many years off and on somewhat successfully. I think one key thing is I rarely take it more than once per week. I prefer the CR as it helps me stay asleep better.

I won't say that it works every time I've used it but probably over 60-70%. Since it's covered on my plan it's a no brainer. If you are used to using benzos I suspect this will be a fail for you.

I've left those out of my life for the most part now and I think they are best for only occasional use as a sleep aid.

ambien helps me sleep like a baby

I've taken this off and on for a couple years. I was prescribed it by an internist who diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and insomnia (the two usually go hand in hand). I get the 10mg because for me I needed more than the 6.5. I fall asleep right away and can continue sleeping until the morning. The problem I alwAys had was staying asleep not just falling asleep. I feel I bit groggy when i first wake up but after 20min I'm ok to go on with my day

Works great for me.

This is about the only medication that will consistently put me to sleep. I've tried other prescriptions and over the counter meds without much luck.
Tolerance builds pretty quickly. Not something you want to use daily.
I don't personally have any hang over effect but I know some people do.
