I'm in day 3 of withdrawal after taking Ambien for about 4 weeks, nearly straight. It usually starts with my needing to get sleep for a few days (travel, etc) but then I get addicted and keep putting off the withdrawal. A lot of people say on the net that you can't get addicted to it. That may be true for some, but not all. I've gone through this once before and it took 2 days but this time, seems to be taking longer. Probably because I was taking 3 pills (x 10 mg) a night because of tolerance. I've been addicted to vicodin before, but now, for better or worse, it gives me a migraine, so I have no desire to take it.

As for doing things you don't remember, several weeks ago I made the mistake of staying up after taking ambien. When I woke up the next day I discovered I'd cut my feet up with a swiss army knife. I have a job where I'm on my feet all day so that wasn't fun.

Like many of you I buy this stuff on the internet like I used to do with vicodin. Everything rational in me knows this is stupid, not to mention really expensive. But I guess addiction is not exactly rational. I usually go online to buy when I'm addicted and running out.

Anyway, I wouldn't even recommend the 7-10 days. I get withdrawal symptoms that early even when I'm only taking 10 mg/night.
