I want to get off Ambiem but when I try I can’t get to sleep for hours and when I do finally fall to sleep it is a very restless sleep. I wake up many times and in the morning I feel exhausted. Can anyone tell me how long it takes to go “cold turkey” to get off of this very bad medication. I used to use Melatonin but it doesn’t work for me any more. Let me hear your experiences.February 12, 2012 at 9:16 pm #14865
I was totally addicted to Ambien. I thought I would never sleep w/o even through I was having all the side effects listed. Plus gain about 10 lbs. I quit, I started sleep hygiene, I’ve lost the weight and am sleeping through the night drug free. So much better. Most of the addiction is mental not physical. STOP taking in a month you will be so much betterFebruary 12, 2012 at 9:39 pm #14879
I have been taking Ambien after a bad accident and very painful surgery. I am still in pain and cant sleep without it. I have tried several times to quit, but insomnia with pain is even worse. So for now I am taking it. I do not have any side effects at all, except I am now wondering why my face is so red in the morning. Could it be Ambien? I do not know, it usually goes away after a few hours. I will get off it though when I am better.
