Ambien is a medication that is used to treat insomnia, more so in people who have problems with initiating sleep. It is likely to cause drowsiness, dizziness, headaches and sometimes diarrhea as side effects. It should not be used with other sedatives as this is likely to cause depressant effect on the central nervous system and respiration. Warm regards.
I have been on Ambien for 4 years now and have been through HELL and still trying to get out of it. Its not that it is really addictive (because I will take anything if it helps me sleep) but it becomes very habit forming especially to those of us who have trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep.I tried Seroquel but it didn't work well for me. Very few things work on me because not only do I have the insomnia (have had since I was little) but I put it in my head that things don't work. I can tell you that I do not recommend Ambien especially to someone with severe insomnia because I never had any type of addiction issue before it but now I will take more then I am supposed to just to sleep because you build a tolerence. If Seroquel works at such a low dose for you I would stay on it! I hope that helps some.
Thank you for the feed back! Iv decided the cons are worse then the pros and its not worth it. Keep on with the fight until something magical comes out. Right? haha
Hello and hope you are doing well.
Understand your predicament. You could slowly try to wean yourself of the medication. In the meantime, follow good sleep hygiene measures like going to bed at the same time, waking up at the same time, avoidance of alcohol, smoking and caffeinated beverages. Maintain warm, comfortable bedroom environment and engage in relaxing activities like a warm bath before bed time. This will promote sleep.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
You've come to the right place and by not taking the serequel of fear, it's quite easy and all it's doing is building the levels needed in your system; - these levels are the groggy/uneasy in the start/ feel sleep when wake takes A while (they have me on 300 spread in time and it's amazing?!? How many u ghave yomg during the day 600mg. See Serequel is not a traditional bi polar targeted method, I found Serequel gave me the best leftovers in my life goodbye is easy Cab you devulg what sharing is great
This page is fully blurry so this a dummy run then send the question again -thabk
Please ask again I've got poor quality on screen and sorry I never left, helping a mate
So firstly it's very worthwhile checking these types, SO your dosage of Serequel should be fine but when do struggle the most to sleep?
Hi - there are a few issues but surrounding alcohol adding to the mixture (4 beers min) and could like be caught naked in my kitchen chatting a dead friend - died 98 I was only20 LIFE AINT FAIR- good luck
Apologies, didn't think about it in any way other than its strong stuff, the 4 beers I think I too much3 is plenty but huge apologies for getting personal
I didn't read carefully and don't know all the patent med names, other than Ambien which I know and have some generic form in my cabinet.
Trazadone is often an effective aid in sleeping, yes it is prescribed as an anti-depressant, but it is also an aid in getting to sleep if taken before bedtime. I take 50 mg, not sure it helps a lot.. my problem is staying asleep.. driven awake by unpleasant dreaming, need to urinate (old guy) and nasal congestion: dry mouth and suffocation. Yes, I've undergone a sleep study and no serious obstructive sleep apnea problems if I keep my weight down from my max. Not real obese, but just 25 pounds over my okay weight and I have OSA problems. Guess fat in my throat is one of the places it accums.
