yogini Posted March 20, 2006 Report Share Posted March 20, 2006 After not being able to sleep over the past few weeks, I finally caved in and went to my dr on Friday. He prescribed Ambien 10 mg. I slept well two nights in a row. Yesterday I felt a little funny and today I felt exhausted. I took three naps this afternoon and I am still tired! Usually I have trouble falling asleep in the afternoon and can at most sleep for an hr. It was nice to make up some sleep, but I really need to be functional during the week for work. Do any of you who take Ambien have daytime drowsiness? I checked their website, and they say it's is a side effect. I am guessing this is my problem, because I was more tired today than I have been without any sleep. I called my pharmacist, and she said that 10 mg may be too high of a dose for me and that I might want to try 5mg. She said I can't cut the pill in 1/2, so I have to call my dr tomorrow and get a new prescription. I know many of you are on Ambien and was wondering how much you take?Thanks,Rita Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
