Re: Breaking Ambien CR in half
Thank you for your response. What part of the pill controls the time of release? Is the coating or the inner core? Also, is it dangerous to break the pill or does it just it nullify the controlled release effect? I have been on Ambien since being diagnosed with a hyperactive thyroid and ADHD, which has been about 8 years now. Over time the Ambien failed to keep me asleep for very long so the doctor prescribed to me the CR. The CR leaves me with a hang-over effect in the morning, so the doctor then gave me the 6.75mg instead of the 12.5. The 6.75 did nothing so now I am back to the 12.5. I thought I might try to take 3/4 of a tablet to see if that would make a difference, but I don't want to compromise anything.
