My wife's first suggestion was that I discontinue taking Ambien immediately; as it was causing
my short term memory
loss, upon further research on the subject, I learned that I am not alone. And that there are dozens, if not hundreds of others, and articles; which are written on the subject, and the association, or side effect of short term memory loss, while using, and apparently even after discontinuing Ambien CR 12.5 tablets!
I've been taking Ambien 12.
