    Ambien CR to Ambien Question/Experiences

    Hello everyone

    So I find myself in a rather desperate state to find some information and I'm hoping I'll find some advice here. I've been on Ambien for about 10 years, and Ambien CR for probably well over 5 of that 10. I'm on the 12.5 and find I want to go down on the dose, however, I've not found too many comfortable ways to try this so far. Or rather, my anxiety has prevented me from trying anything that remotely sounds like a good idea. I'd like to switch to the normal Ambien (not the CR), 10 mg, and was wondering what other people's experiences with doing this have been. How were you able to do this and what was the best way to do this? I've read to take 5 mg first and then 5 mg in a few hours, I've read to just take the 10 mg, but anxiety has spiraled out of control to where I just can't seem to make myself try for even a night. Has anyone successfully switched from Ambien CR 12.5 down to the regular 10 mg Ambien without much of a problem and is there the best way to do this? And if you have, did you take anything for anxiety throughout the night to help you along, or any other supplements like Melatonin? Seeking some past experiences that might help me not to feel so worried about not getting to sleep and I appreciate anyone that might be able to give me some insight <3
