Hi there, I was taking ambien for several months, however believe it was messsing with my mind. I don't really know if it was just ME….but it scared me that I needed this to sleep…and sleep I did.
Because I do like to have drinks several times a week, it truly is not recommended to take ambien with alcohol, therefore….that is what I believe is what was happening. Strange mind things going on.
I am exhausted every day now, trying to decide what to do.
Thinking of going back on trazedone, which helped with sleep for a couple years but I seemed to reach a tolerance level and kind of stopped working.
Why do we hear such bad things about ambien, if Dr's keep prescribing?
I guess I’m lucky. I have a glass of wine every day around 5-6. Take my ambien and Xanax around 10:00 and feel fine and we’ll rested the next day. If I try skipping the ambien, I end up taking it after not being able fall asleep. My doc really wants me off ambien even though I take only 5 mg.
