If you are reading this, then you have probably experienced some kind of a sleeping dirorder recently, or perhaps you just want to hear the story of a person who did and educate yourself. Both reasons are perfectly legitimate and, either way, I urge you to read this brief blog if you suffer from, or know anyone who suffers from, a sleeping disorder, since Ambien, the drug that changed my life, could also easily change yours for the better.
You must be wondering what is Ambien? In brief, it is one of the most popular sleeping pills in the world and ideal for those who have trouble falling asleep. But let’s start from the start. Everyone knows what insomnia is, however, few people know that insomnia, while being a parasomnia (sleeping disorder), is not a disease per se. It is rather a symptom of something else, in my case and most other cases stress and anxiety. Everyone is under stress, and I used to be no exception. Ever since my second child was born and I got a promotion at work, things have been hectic, to say the least. There were days when I was up for literally 24 hours and I didn’t like it. At first I had some trouble falling asleep, but this is not to be mistaken for insomnia – many people have trouble falling asleep. However, as I was becoming more and more stressed out, my condition got worse and I became a real insomniac, a person with the inability to properly fall asleep at night. Any night.
As a result, I was constantly tired and moody and it took only weeks for me to say I couldn’t take it anymore. I went to see my physician and he confirmed that I had insomnia. I already knew that much, but I wasn’t sure if there was any proper treatment for that condition. He then suggested Ambien and said it was the most effective and popular drug around. He examined me just to make sure I could use the medication and then handed me the prescription.
After merely days, Ambien started working for me, and how! The drug is extremely effective, it kicks in literally 10-15 minutes after you take it, so you can just take a pill before going to bed. Furthermore, it definitely accounts for about 7-8 hours of solid sleep, so make sure you only take it at night, when you need your rest. I’m not sure what my dosage was, but this is why it is imperative you go see your doctor before you start using the drug. Obeying the rules goes without saying.
Nowadays, I sleep like a baby. I still see my doctor regularly to check if any adjustments to the treatment should be made, but everything seems perfectly fine. If you think you have insomnia, I strongly encourage you to consider Ambien, because it will bring you your sleep and peace back.
