Have taken Ambien for as long as I can remember. I never slept well even as a teen. I'm going to stop taking it tonight as I've been only taking a half with a melatonin for a month. I'm scared that I won't sleep. My Principal swears by taking cherry concentrate at night. I just drank it (yuck btw) and we'll see how it goes. I want to be medicine free and this is the only one I still take.
