Ambien: How can I sleep without it?
Hi, @kenny52. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thanks for the suggestion of the tea for helping get to sleep.
Is your doctor recommending you taper off the zolpidem (Ambien)? Or are you feeling that tapering would be the best for you right now?

Lisa – Do you think Ambien is safe if taken every night in about 5mg…..i.e. the only reason I want off of it is because I have had memory issues-especially short term attention-and even no memory of some things from my past. This has progressively gotten worse in the past couple of years and even moreso within past 9 months Perhaps the ambien is not my problem because it has worked very well for me. I sleep much better when I take it.
