I've been taking Ambien for about a year now. It has helped my sleep, but I only slept about 5 hrs. My dr put me on Ambien Cr saying I would receive more hrs of sleep. He was right I did sleep for about 7 hrs. I started feeling very anxious and couldn't figure out why. Thought it was just some other effect from fm. Attatched to my last prescription of Ambien CR was an extre Pharmacy notification stating the side effects. One of them was anxiety. I stopped taking the Ambien CR and the anxiety stopped. Did anyonelse have this reaction? My problem now is what can I take to get a good nights sleep. Anyone taking something that they could recommend. Right now I am in desperate need of some good sleep. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hey, all. Good morning/weekend/etc. Feeling a bit edgy. Mom needs to see an endocrinologist now. I think she's seen every other specialty in the last couple years, sooo... Now what? We find out more today (Saturday) b/c they sent something in the mail to her and she wants us to read it in person. Off we go as soon as Hubby gets dressed. (This takes time. He has to mismatch very carefully;-D...
Up by 4 AM. I cannot call it a good morning. It is only, technically, *morning*. As in "past midnight". That's it.Apparently, this whole pre-menopause hormones thing kicking from neutral-first gear to third (no second gear! Yay?!)... mood and hormone swings are *insane*. Literally. Like, I am on Prozac anyway and it's still insanely bad. Messes with sleep (fibro) and anxiety (fibro) and... Yeah....
