    I'm 70 years old and I have had trouble sleeping for as long as I can remember. I have had problems with spinal stenosis for about 10 years and have recently developed a fairly significant case of sciatica. My experience with Zolpidem Tartrate has been very good, so far. I've been taking it for about 6 months. I take 1/2 of a 10 mg. tablet at night before going to bed. I haven't notice ... Show Full Comment

    I have a warning to all considering this drug, and years ago, I in fact wrote to the FDA to beg them to put a warning on this drug. I think they did, and so that will help, I hope..I was put on Ambien in 2004. I am still on it, and it does help turn off the switch, but now I am extremely addicted to the drug.

    I have only been on this medication for about 5 weeks and it works really well for me. Its so nice to fall asleep and sleep through the night without feeling dead inside. I was taking 450 mgs of Trazodone and was still not sleeping well. I have also tryed to stop drinking anything after 7pm so I don't have to pee in the middle of the night. I have never tryed any kind of sleep aid in my life, ... Show Full Comment
