I can't sleep. I've been taking generic Ambien for two weeks and I fall asleep right away but I wake up anywhere between 2 and 4am and am awake the rest of the day. Yesterday I had the doctor call in some Ambien CR for me, the controlled release one which is supposed to help you fall asleep and STAY asleep and again this morning I woke up at 4am. I even got the real Ambien and not the generic.
Do controlled release meds not work on us anymore?? What's the deal with me not sleeping suddenly, any suggestions? This has been going on too long and I've tried everything from the hot tub to drinking hot cocoa...I'm miserable and sleep deprived....
