    I had a few weeks with not sleeping or an hour or two a night. My doctor had me on Zolpidem 10mg to start out with. It worked but I only slept 3 to 4 hours a night. They switched me to Zolpiem CR 6.5 mg. It was too low of a dose to sleep. The doctor told me to take two. That did the trick! I vary from sleeping 6 to 8 now. Even with an empty stomach, it takes an hour to 90 minutes to fall asl ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken Ambien for several years, and they have literally saved my life! I have restless leg syndrome and only slept 2 to 3 hours per night before taking Ambien. They usually work very well, except for two generic versions and neither of them helps me sleep. The one I’m rating now is Oblong, white with a (V) on one side and (6469) on the other. I would be surprised if it contains any Zolp ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken this drug off and on for a couple of years. Lately, have had trouble waking up in morning after 10 - 12 hours. Also my bird is acting funny like I am scaring him. Have gained a lot of weight because I eat without knowing about it and have conversations with my husband and do not remember. If I drink alcohol, it is worse. Need to stop this drug. Also, am tired all of the time and ... Show Full Comment

    When I first began taking ambien it worked great. But the body builds up a tolerance and until 2012-13 I was able to take what worked for me.Insurance even paid for it.It was also the real thing; not generic. I took 20-22.5 milligrams total at night; 12.5 cr and I would wake up after 4hrs and took the 10 mg. I slept like a baby and felt rested when I woke up. I need 7-8 hrs. of sleep or I just don ...
