Does anyone have any experience taking ambien they would be willing to share? I was taking Lexapro and it helped me with my sleep but had to stop. As soon as I stoped my insomnia came back and my doctor wants me to try Ambien. I went on a web site where some people people complained they got up at night and did activities but did not remember doing them while taking ambien. I also read you can become dependent. Of course my doctor did not mention these things to me when he gave me the prescription. AHHH! Any personal experience or info would be most welcome and helpful.
