Hello Everyone,

I have numerous problems (symptoms) and am going through testing to find out what is wrong with me. Because of all my symptoms I was not sleeping at all so my neurologists decided I needed to be on Ambien CR 12.5. I am currently taking one 12.5 mg. Ambien CR every night. I have been since Jan 2007 (5 months). I work in a high school library full time but have the summers off. I want to get off the Ambien now or in a week because I will have the summer off and can deal with the not sleeping because of it. I have an appt. with my neuro on June 14 but was wondering if I can start weaning myself off of them. I do have a written script for 10 mg. I know that I can not cut the 12.5 in half but I was thinking about getting the 10 mg filled and using 1/2 a tablet a night. How do I go about doing this? Will I have any side effects. I am so worried I am addicted. I am ready for the challenge and I do not have any addictions to anything. Please let me know how to best get off of these things. Thanks so much.
