Been having trouble sleeping for a long time. Have often used Benadryl as well as Wine (not both at the same time) to help me get to sleep in the past. For some reason ZMA hasn't helped.
Well, I talked to the Dr. about it and he recommended Ambien and RX'ed me a 30 day supply. For those who haven't taken it before it's recommended that you take the pill 30 minutes prior to your intended time to fall asleep.
Last night was the first night I took it. I took the pill on an empty stomach at around 9:00 but didn't really fall asleep until around 11:00. However once I fell asleep I slept pretty soundly, all the way through my "get up and go work out" alarm at 4:45. Dammit.
I didn't climb out of bed until 5:30. I slept like a stone though and woke up this am feeling well rested rather than wore out, like I'd been thrashing around in bed all night.
Anyone else have experience with this medication? Similar experiences? What's with the 2 hour adsorbtion vs/ the 30 minute prediction on the package insert?
Any assistance you all could provide would be awesome.
