.."My current problem is getting to sleep at night that I'm fighting. I go to bed tired, roll around for about an hour or hour and a half and then get up. I usually go on the computer for another hour or more before I can stagger back to bed and fall asleep. I got a prescription for Ambien from my Doctor that helps in the far end when I actually go to sleep, but I still get up for awhile like I did without the pill. Crazy! Anyone else have this type of problem?


This could have been written by me.The sound generator that mimics ocean waves has sometimes helped me.I try not to take ambien more than once or twice a week.If I need something,I'll opt for over-the-counter melatonin (3mg).
