Ambien, I have been on it nightly for 2 years. Gradually working myself up to 1 1/2 10 mg tabs a night. I wasn't watching how many were left and ran out right before the weekend - a very busy weekend.
My doctor was not available to refill. By the time I had gotten a go to refill, 5 days had gone by.The first two nights were perfectly awful. I was in an almost going-to-sleep mode the entire night. I would fall off for a few minutes with the world's worst dreams. This went on all night. I was panicky. I got through the day and still had no word of the prescription coming in. So each night, I was getting no quality sleep and having awful dreams. The third night, my husband went out and got me NyQuil and extra strength tylenol. I took a regular dose of each and only got up once in the night and slept until 12 noon the following day. It was great but I has some stomach cramps and headache. the fourth night I followed the same procedure and slept soundly until 10 am.I have been a little fuzzy and groggy, but I am amazed that I was able to withdraw so easily. Last night was fine as well. Today I'm feeling quite normal. I do take a lot of antioxidants and fish oil capsules. I have read that helps. Other than that, I don't think I am going to pick up my prescription that just came in.

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!
