I have been in Ambien for a few months now. I am a recovring alcoolic. I have social anxiety disorder, anic disorder, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder. I am taking 60 mg Paxil at night, 15 mg of Buspar 3 times a day, a thyroid pill, Neurontin for back pain, and have tried Trazodone, Remeron, Seroquel, Cymbalta, all of em for slsep. Nada. I can't fall asleep at all but I really, really have to be waken up in almost an ice cold pool of water to wake up. I'm wondering if )I have a past history of sleep apnea but lost 150 lbs and have not worn it) but it makes me think Ambien causes such respiratory dstress that even a CPAP would put you into a dangerous situation. My back hurts, too, so I'm just all over a physical end emotional mess. Losing 150 ponds to gastric bypass was great but now I hate my body. I'm 34 and Ill never let anyone see me naked again. I have huge folls that need a tummy tuck, saggy boobs from breastfeeding, wrinkly iner thigs that hang donw, and my forehead needs to be pulled up or something... it's mess1
Sometimes I think that phone sex/web cam stuff wouldn't be so bad if I had a body people could look at without vomiting. *rolleyes.
