I do take Ambien
at night and some nights it does
help me to fall asleep faster, but it doesn't help much
to KEEP me asleep. I used to use the Ambien CR and that did a much better job of that, however, my insurance no longer covers the CR and since there is no generic for that one, it is cost prohibitive for me, so I stick with the "regular" Ambien.
Have you talked to your doctor about trying a sleep aid?
