Zolpidem 10 mg. not working
I have never been a good sleeper however now at age 62 I am a total insomniac.  I have been recently put on zolpidem 10 mg for sleep by my rheumatologist.  Iv'e taken it 4 times every other night per Dr. instruction to not get addicted, however it hasn't helped AT ALL!  What could be wrong?  I have other health isues, Lupus & high BP and under treatment for these problems.  15 yrs ago I took Ambien for a short period and it worked perfect, I'm concened, any idea as to what could be going on???

I read somewhere that prominent Stanford researcher and doctor, Dr. Christian Guilleminault believes that many insomnia cases are caused by some form of sleep disordered breathing such as upper airway resistance syndrome or sleep apnea.  I had insomnia for years and only recently discovered that it was upper airway resistance syndrome.  I use a cpap nightly and no longer have insomnia.  I suggest you go to the Stanford Sleep disorders clinic for a sleep study - this clinic is world famous
