How did you get off the last .125 mg. You tapered from 1 mg to .125 mg in a month?

@libby123 & @mare12 Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

@libby123 That is a good question. Tapering can be complicated. I cannot give medical advice but I am aware that providers sometimes offer short-term medications to help minimize the side effects/withdraw symptoms from certain drugs. I'm not sure this if this strategy applies to Ambien. May I ask if you have asked your provider how you will manage the final taper dose?

@mare12 It's good that you sought a second opinion from specialists. Do you have suggestions about ways other members/patient can advocate, like you did?
