Insomnia, Ambien (zolpidem): I understand your need to have good sleep.
After using Ambien (zolpidem) for 2 years, you have developed Tolerance, so it is not effective any more.
Ambien (zolpidem) CR will not be effective either.
Insomnia is a symptom of effects of stress in your life for which Therapy, Breathing and Music Relaxation, Yoga, Meditation are beneficial.
