Hi Glojer, hope all is well with you. That's great you got into your doctor & they gave you a script for AmbienCR. With it I do still wake up about 50% of the time between 2-3am. Usually I can fall back asleep vs. regular Ambien which with I was usually forced to take something over the counter so I could sleep the rest of the night. The makers of it say that it works best if you take it on an empty stomach - I usually have to take it 30 minutes before I go to sleep. But, it's rare that with it I don't get to sleep. Thank the Lord!! Getting sleep is about the best thing ever.
Let us know how it works out for you.
Wishing you well,
