I am currently taking ambein for insomnia.But every morning wheñ I wake up I am tiredd the whole dày and it feels like à truck hit me with a headache ?

Every body different: Every body metabolism is different. Most will metabolize this drug in 8 hours but some it may be 4 and others it may be 12. Lower dose can be helpful but also make sure you don't have an actual sleep disorder that is being missed (like apnea) because medications like Ambien (zolpidem) worsen apnea so now apneas are longer and lower oxygen and you wake up feeling worse than when you go to bed. ...Read more

Is it ill advised to take 20mg of ambien (zolpidem)? The 10's don't seem to be working so well lately and I could really use the sleep. Thanks!

Is it ill advised to take 20mg of ambien (zolpidem)? The 10's don't seem to be working so well lately and I could really use the sleep. Thanks!

Yes: Ambien (zolpidem) if taken every night without a several day break occasionally will get less effective. You should always do well with 10 mg. Stop on a weekend during which you should have a couple of good days of relaxation and exercise and then restart for the days of stress when you can't get to sleep. ...Read more
