Weaning off zolpidem (Ambien)

Started taking a little Ambien again. Nothing else would let me sleep more than a few hours. I have decided I am OK with some Ambien.

@maryshipley, I am planning to see a therapist who specializes in insomnia and he understands that I am hoping to wean off Ambien. Going on a vacation out of country for two weeks and will see him after. I totally rely on my meds to sleep. 5 mg Ambien, .25 Xanax., 5 mg melatonin and 2 Benadryl.. If I wake up at 2 or 3, I take another 5 ambien, It is so wonderful to sleep at night, but my doctor is insistent that i wean off ambien and the Xanax. Can’t imagine doing without.
