I have been taking Ambien for a few weeks.  That stuff is starting to depress me.  I noticed that I sleep but don't feel rested.  I think that stuff interrupts REM sleep.  I feel really cranky.  My poor wife is catching it.  I am going to stop and just stay awake all night.  All that sleeping med is really bad news as are tranquilizers. Addictive and they mess with your mind.

The VA gave it to me years ago. It was great for a few weeks, but I had the same issues after. It also made me grouchier than normal. Consider asking for an appointment with a neuro sleep doc. You might need a sleep study.

I ended up being given melatonin 10 mg, but could never time it right. I'd be awake too long or asleep too long. Now I take a lower dose over the counter dissolving tablet by Natrol which is time released. It's better than nothing, but far from perfect refreshing sleep due to pain.
