Re: I hate ambien!
Jun 20, 2012
I've been an insomniac all my life. I'm now 71. Until Ambien came along I could neither fall asleep or stay asleep, so my nights were hell & my days, if anything, worse! But 5 mg Ambien did the trick & I never needed more. I even cut back taking it to just 2 times a week & still slept pretty well.

But a year ago I developed severe chronic pain after an operation, so I ended up taking Ambien CR 12.5 mg every night. This solved my renewed sleep problem, but every morning I was horribly sick with nausea & stomach ache. I trembled at even the thought of trying to eat breakfast. it got so bad, my body wasn't feeling well until 3 in the afternoons.

Then I suddenly got the idea to cut back the Ambien to 5 mg. voila! No more morning/afternoon sickness. And I'm getting enough sleep if not great sleep.

Don't know if this helps your situation, but thought I'd offer mine.

Cheerios, Joel
