Hello everyone! Looking for advice without going to the Dr yet from those who may have perhaps had a similar experience. I have been taking ambien to help me sleep now for about 3 years. Now all of a sudden I am waking up in the middle of the night wired. I go to bed around 11 and get up around 6:30-7 I wake up around 3am usually to pee as I drink a ton of liquids, then I cannot go to sleep for another hour or so. I get to work and I am a zombie. Right now I am having a hard time staying awake. I will go home after work and crah for two hours then get up and eat and work some more. It sucks man, I would give just about anything to sleep without an aid, what should I do? No I havent been to the Dr yet and no I do not have sleep apnea.
