: Ok, I confess, I am 100% addicted to Ambien. I read all this stuff about doctors only prescribing it for short periods ~ I've been on it for almost 2 years. I finally talked my doctor into prescribing 20 mg/night. I try to talk myself out of taking it almost every day but by the time night comes I find myself craving the feeling it gives me. I have tried other drugs to help me sleep but they all give me that next day hangover. I was even pulled aside at the pharmacy last week and the pharmacist told me about the tolerence I am obvisiously building up. I have a feeling that the only way I will get off this stuff is if I check myself into a hospital but I lead a very busy life and have no time to take a "vacation" Does anyone have any advice for me? Anyone know of any drugs that may have the same affect as Ambien without the addiction? Your help is appreciated!
I take xanax at bed time to help me sleep and when i have them i also take soma. I never wake up hung over but i usually need a nap between 2-3 hrs after rising. I have a lot of pain problems as well so i also take hydrocodone all day and this makes me tired as well, thank god i'm retired.
