thanks for this! i've been told to take Ambien for awhile & it really seems to help me sleep but i am constantly concerned about the safety of any drug.

Ambien

I have tried Ambien before, and it actually helps me get good quality sleep. It will not take away sleep apnea, but getting a good night's rest is almost as valuable as gold nowadays.

I seem to get enough sleep control by using ambien I work 3rd shift (4 10 hour days) and try to retain 1st shift relationships on the weekends, I have been taking ambien mostly daily for the last 6 months I even break up the ambien zolpidem to 1/3s and 1/4s to be able to sleep a few hours (works well for me) but I am wondering what the actual sleepworthiness of this and since I have never had my sleep apnea measured or been treated am I making things worse for me? I recently gained 20 lbs but I think it is eating wrong and not excercising like I used to I will address that soon but just looking for opinions although I know that I am playing with a time bomb..Oh yeah my agency just came up with a new insurance plan with $3,000 deductible lovely huh?
