sleeping pills

how do i get the same results i used to get from taking one 10 mg.ambien a night

i've never been able to take just 10 mg. of ambien at night to sleep. my mom takes the same dose and has for years and she can still fall asleep with the one pill. i am taking upwards of 30 mg. at night and want to go down to 10 mg. see my mom gets a little loopy and i have to put her to bed because she can barely keep her eyes open and she mumbles things, which i've read are all normal.but for me this doesn't happen. i don't know what i need to do to achieve these results with only 10 mg. of ambien. i'm tired of taking more than i need to and wish i could just fall asleep on the lower dose. i've tried to cut down more and more but my body won't let me. if i take one ambien it leaves me awake all night. i just want to train or trick my body to get it used to taking only 10 mg. at night. what's wrong with me?. i 'm absolutely frustrated and can't afford to pay for all this ambien. HELP what should I DO?? ps. i've tried over the counter aids. a warm glass of milk, hot bath, unisom, tylenol pm, valerian root, melatonin, L-Tryptophan. amitriptilayne, lunesta, seroquel,muscle relaxants, anti-anxiety meds, i was even put on an investigational drug made from GHB, can anyone help??

We used G-Monster Saturday night; I used one serving and so did my girlfriend.  My girlfriend got totally different effects from the product than I did.  I just got relaxed and chill; as I do when I did a cap of scoop, but my girlfriend said it was too trippy for her, if we were at a club I think she would have wigged out. Should she cut down the dosage or do women feel different effects from some products than men?

Hi,
Some newer medications like Zolpidem (Ambien) act more specifically on the same area in the brain and are thought to have fewer side effects. But they are still considered controlled substances. Sleep medications are most effective when used  for short term situations.  If medications are used over the long term, dependence and tolerance may be a problem. Talk to your doctor if you are not responding to the lower dose of your present medication and discuss what suitable medicine for you. Take care and best regards.
