    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I am in the process of exploring Intermezzo, recently approved by the FDA on an as needed basis. No need to predict when you will wake up kowing you will not be able to get back to sleep until you have to be awake.

    It is a rapidly absorbed low dose form of the active ingredient in Ambien
    So if one wakes and can commit at least four hours to sleep it can be taken.

    Subjects in clinical trials were even given driving tests.

    By not taking every time before one needs to get to sleep along with the low dose it might help reduce building tolerance (which terries me with any medication. I do not think there are issues with physical addictionbut ask your Doc as ia will next week
