J S écrit: I've been told by my doctor not to take more than two 10 mg tablets a day. I take 10 a day (100 mg). OFC, I split the dose into two or three smaller ones. This drug does miracles when you're suffering from an anxiety disorder and its symptoms are unbearable. But I'v mixed it with a beer or two and had no hallucinations or agitation. BTW. I also use lorazepam, but I always stick with the dosage, 2 x 1 mg tablet a day.Norman Spurgeon écrit: This is a lot of blabbing- why not be articulate, and talk about the damage to the liver and heart? Very superficial journalism- uninformative.The Watcher écrit: Veteran with PTSD and chronic insomnia I've been taking it for about 6 years now never really had any problems except for a couple of sleep eating my wife said I ate a whole box of cereal one time but other than that I have to have it to get a decent nights sleep.

I have been coming off an opiate dependence and everyone who knows about this knows that sleep is very elusive! I am also on benzos, so instead of having to take 100mg of diazepam and perhaps more to get some sleep I simply take 12.5mg of Ambien Cr and I get 8-10 hrs. of great sleep! I have only started to use it recently and it has worked wonders, it's a little expensive but worth it, I will look around for the generic. I have read about the tolerance building up and all of that so I will be very careful with my use, skipping days and so forth, I have also read from reliable sources that it's much safer than benzos. I want to get off of everything! Be clean and serene. When I take it, it's all about sleep, it's worked wonders for me!Connor Behunin écrit: this is awesomeX Y écrit: Ye visits to the emergency room , u r ow what the reasons for those visits are called? Getting high and tripping balls Ian Stockwell écrit: throw dirt on everything, that's the news.Lori écrit: That fda cut for women is stupid! I was on 10mg for 2 years not one problem slept great then because of all of this shit my doctor had to drop me to 5mg still not one problem other than not sleeping worth a shit so I decided to double up and take 2 5mgs and then I run completely out by the middle of the month. I know tons of people who take ambien and none of them have problems on it either also some need less some need more so it should the patients and doctors deciding what a patient needs. If I've done fine on 10mgs for 2 years then keep me on 10 if the next person didn't do well on 10 drop them to 5 and so on Bronco Surveillance écrit: Ok why in the hell do I get ugly Doctors and not her.
