ambien (generic)

hi all,

i've been taking generic ambien for close to 2 years now. i've started to cut them in half, hoping that will work as well as the original 10 mg. sometimes it works, sometimes not. works best at the full 10 mg. question is this: if my doctor will not give me a new script when i run out (and i don't know that he won't), can anyone recommend anything over-the-counter that will help me sleep as well as the ambien. i'd really like to try something over-the-counter anyway rather than "depend" on the ambien. however, i CANNOT fall alseep on my own!!!!

thanks in advance

When you take Ambien or the generic kind your stomach has to be empty

I take 10 mg also was just bumped up. I make sure my stomach is empty at least 2-3 hrs before I take it and its been working so good Knock on Wood!!
