I had trouble with a particular generic of trazodone recently. Until that time trazodone was working great for me. Now my doc wants to take me off trazodone entirely and start me on ambien. As I read up on ambien, I'm becoming concerned that this is not a good idea. It seems to me that the ambien works as a sleep initiator (which I don't need) and not a sleep maintainer (which I do need). I have some other concerns as well. Does anyone have any thoughts/knowledge/experience on this? Thanks!
