Ambien help
Sep 22, 2005
I have been taking ambien for some time, but every night for 1 1/2 years. I was only taking 2.5 to 5 mg for most of the time but for the last few months I have been taking 10 mg. Now I CAN't sleep and I am exhausted to the point where yesterday I had extreme vertigo in the evening. I know I need to wean myself off of this. I tried taking 1/2 of a lorazepam yesterday afternoon and I actually did sleep in the evening for a couple of hours - but I woke up and finally took 5 mg of ambien at 2 in the morning and still never slept after that. I think the ambien is now causing the insomnia. Any ideas on how to get some sleep as I wean off this. I am afraid I will just collapse with exhaustion.
