I am trying to get off of Ambien. I have taken it for years. Just this last week, I started needing more than one pill to get me to sleep at night. I can't nap during the day at all...no matter how much I need to because my body says "gotta have that ambien dose before I'm gonna go into zzzz-land"
Any suggestions on how to get off this drug. It really effects my life in a negative way. I have periods of amnesia where I have done stuff (nothing major) and can't remember any of it. Not major things, like I said. One time I got up and ate two boxes of candy....evidence of the empty candy boxes was the only clue I had. One time while I was asleep, my husband spilled a coke in our bedroom...I apparently told him not to bother to clean it up because the whole house looked like crap anyway. Why he listened to me, I do not know
Anyway, I want off of it. I don't really want to admit to my family that I am hooked on it. My marriage is in a really sucky place right now so seeking help from my husband is not an option.
What do you think? Any hope of me kicking this alone? Thanks. Shay
