Has anyone taken it, or had an alergic reaction to it? The literature said something about swollen tongue, throat etc. I have had that shock from bee stings. I am a little hesitant about trying it.My doctor didn't think I would have any trouble, I am just a little cautious. Any feed back I would appreciate. ginnie
I have never taken Ambien. But I know people who have. It's a weird drug. Some people do just fine with it. Others, while on it, appear to be perfectly normal and awake but really aren't. When I lived with my bf he would get up in the middle of the night and do weird things like open and close doors, eat, call people up, etc. and would have no recollection of doing those things.
DD20 sometimes has trouble sleeping. She tried something called NeuroSleep. It worked really well for her and we always have some here just in case she can't sleep. I don't remember exactly what is in it but I know it has a lot of magnesium in it. If you do a google search you can find it and read reviews. Some people, like my daughter, only need 1/2 bottle.
I think I've been having trouble sleeping because my mind won't shut off. I have so much going on right now with both my health and everyday life situations. I also started taking a new med, Protonix, and am not sure if that is contributing to it as well. I haven't checked that out.
