Insomnia is a symptom frequently associated with worry, anxiety, and depression. The latest generation of sleeping aids does not treat the cause. Mild cases of insomnia have been treated by avoiding foods and supplements that can drive insomnia such as wine and B vitamins. Eating more medicinal foods can help insomnia and other symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. Moderate and severe cases of insomnia may best be treated with psychotherapy and medicine that get to the cause. BRIGHTFOODS has more information on which foods help insomnia, anxiety, and depression, and the ones that make these conditions worse.

I'm glad you're not my doctor. Chronic lack of sleep can cause anxiety and depression, as well as poor health. Thankfully MY doctor prescribed a sleep aid for me, and I'm finally sleeping close to six hours a night. Everyone is different, don't make sweeping statements.

THRE GOES THAT STUPID F.D.A. AGAIN. THE MAIN REASON A PERSON TAKES A SLEEPING PILL IS TO SLEEP. WHAT COULD BE MORE PLAINER.

I took one ambien back in Feb. and have NO memory of getting in my car and going for a drive. I crashed into a mt. about a mile from my home. When I came too I couldn't figure out what was going on. I had to climb out the window to walk home barefoot in the snow. I was hurt really bad so my neighbor and husband called for an ambulance. When the ambulance came so did a trooper to do an accident report. Needless to say I was arrested for DUI and was suspended from work. 17 yrs of teaching plus 5 yrs of college jeopardized over one sleeping tablet. I am still attending court and hearings over all of this. For all of you out there saying, "oh, I just do small silly things!" Well, that is how my story started. I would do goofy things that were actually humorous. Well, today I am not laughing. I was booked at the jail by one of my former kindergarten students. The guard that checked on me all night long-I had her kids in kindergarten, and the county attorney-guess what-yes, I had his kids in school too. This has by far been the most humiliating thing that has ever happened t me. I have been set back by probably 25,000.00 easy. Lost income, medical bills, legal fees/lawyer, etc...But, even though it seems bad-I thank God I didn't hit someone and hurt/kill them. Now I am just suffering w/insomnia but I would rather be tired than CRAZY. Please people I beg you to not take this medication. It nearly derailed my life. I found out very quickly who are true friends and who aren't.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from XTOP24 .COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

I just today received my 4th from Xtop24 .COM , I think, order from them, and as always, am very happy with them! I'm a real person too, lol, I don't work for them, but I found this forum when looking for other people who take this drug. EMS shipping method, I get it in less than a week, and I swear the couple times I actually called to place an order versus online ordering, i got it quicker,like 2-3 days later. The tracking number and estimated delivery date has been 100% accurate so far, and customer service has been great. I even got a coupon for 20 bucks off of my last order through email, which I thought was an excellent thing to do for their customers! I'll continue using them as long as I have to!
