Problems falling asleep

momochat posted:
Hi to all,
I have had sleep problems since several years.
I think it started about 6/7 years back when I needed to travel overseas for my work and was much stressed about it.I was not able to sleep at all about 2 to 3 weeks before travelling.
It went and go but since 4 years it has become chronic and I am no longer sleeping correctly now.
I am not able to fall asleep without medication.
And sometimes it does not work at all.
I take 1/4 cap to max 1/2 cap of Ambien (Stilnox) every night.
I dont want to take more.
I want to sleep well (or better) and quit this bad habit.
Anybody can help and have solutions ?
How to switch off ?
Cheers
Momochat

Have you had a sleep study done yet? I take ambien & other drugs in order to sleep every night & have accepted the fact that I will for the rest of my life.

No. Ambien is a non- benzo hypnotic. But it work like benzos.
