I have been on Bien 5 mg for 6 years now and I will sleep with it but it's never 8 hours and lately has been 5-6.hours as a normal and I bought a Fitbit and shows most of my sleep is light sleep. I never recall anything I say or did after taking the Ambien so it's like fifty first dates when I take it lay in bed and chat with my boyfriend. It's the only time we have a lot of time to chat and he's long distance so I don't see him often so I talk with him when I can. It takes about an hour for the medication to work and it's that and unisom together for it to still work at this many years in. I really have had insomnia 12 years with it just progressively getting worse and no reason found as to why. I want to be able to sleep without a sleep aide because I am always a walking zombie. Anyone successfully get off Ambien and sleep normally?

Are you still here and how is your sleeping going?
