Side effects of Ambien 'use' - abuse...

I take Ambien every night, have done so for 6 months or so, and not built a tolerance to it, so it knocks me flat in an hour or so.

I also suffer from daily headaches, muscle and joint pain and twitching, and I wake up tired and stay tired all day. I'm wondering if anyone else experiences these side effects?

less serious side effects:
• daytime drowsiness, dizziness, weakness, feeling "drugged" or light-headed;
• weakness, lack of coordination;
• amnesia, forgetfulness;
• vivid or abnormal dreams;
• diarrhea, nausea, vomiting;
• headache, muscle pain; or
• blurred vision.
Have A Great Day!
