I started taking Ambien about 3 years ago. When my former doctor stopped refilling my prescription, I began ordering it online. This was generic zolpidem
or Zopidem tartrate
from India & South Africa. I found that almost immediately after I took it I would relax, my anxiety would go away, but I wouldn't nec feel sleepy. I would take a 5 mg when I got home from work, and
then take another 5 or 10 mg later to actually fall asleep.
