can excessive amounts of ambien cause breast cancer?

I was abusing ambien, just wanting to sleep because of worrying about getting breast cancer and now I heard that ambien can actually cause breast cancer.  I am off the ambien and cant sleep and still worried sick about the atypical lobular hyperplasia.  Dont want to have a mascetomy.   Any suggestions?

Dear Alley49:  Breast neoplasm and breast changes have been reported in ambien trials as rare occurrences (less than 1 in 1,000).  Whether or not these are related to ambien is unclear.  Drug companies have to report any events that occur in trials – whether or not they are likely to be caused by the drug.  If you are concerned about your breast cancer risk, you might meet with a medical breast specialist who can review your risk and make recommendations for surveillance.  Abusing ambien is another matter all together and should be discussed with your primary care physician.
