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.

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.

I have been more depressed, with terrible thoughts of killing myself while on this medication. I know killing myself is not God's plan for my life, but I feel as hopeless as I have. I also don't remember things, like getting the car out of the garage and not seeing the neighbor's mailbox... and even more frightning...not understanding how I got out there in the first place.
