Is Ambien the Problem or am I Depressed?
I stopped being able to fall asleep on my own a long time ago. It started with Tradozone and now I’m taking 5 mg Ambien. My mornings are nonexistent. I pray to God that I wake up in the mornings and that does not always work. Most of the time I don’t get get out of bed until 11-2 PM in the afternoon. This has been my new normal but I don’t like it at all! I go to bed at 9, 9:30, 10, 10:30 or 11. I have a friend that takes the same thing I do and wakes up at 5 am every morning. I’d rather have that than too much sleep. It has always been one extreme (no sleep) or the other (too much sleep). I have tried antidepressants but they cause Restless Leg Syndrome which is awful when you are trying to go to sleep. I’m taking Iron for that. Any ideas?
