Ambien questions
Apr 22, 2008
Hello, I have had an off and on again problem with insomnia. First the doctor prescribed Ambien 10 mg which did not help at all. Then after I fnally convinced him that it was not working, he prescribed 2 mg Lunesta. I got 10 days of fairly decent sleep, about 5 or 6 hours a night which for me is a really big deal. Then he said he wanted to wean me off them gradually so he cut me down to 1 mg a night. The first night I slept about 3 to 4 hours, Still not bad for me. The second night I went to sleep after about 2 hours then woke up 2 hours later at 2 am and could not go back to sleep. I have to be at work at 6 am so here I am. Sick to my stomach from lack of sleep again. I always get real queasy when I lose sleep. Anyway, could it be that 1 mg is just not enough or is it rebound insomnia and should I just tough it out for a couple more days I cannot see my doctor again for 2 days so it is rough.
Thanks for answering me. Kasey
