Why Isn't the Ambien Working???
It used to work. I could take 5 mg and get whoozy enough to bug out for the night. But most of the time I need 10mg. And I used to be able to take a whole 10mg tablet and be loopy inside of 30 minutes. If you ever saw one of my unedited posts that was written after the Ambien started to kick in, then you know what I mean.
I took a 10 mg tablet over two hours ago and here I am, reading and writing like I drank the water and forgot the pill, (which I did not.) I've noticed that it's been taking longer to take effect, but this is ridiculous. I need to sleep. It's 5:00 AM. Has my neurochemistry become completely whacked out?
I know I'm not wired like the rest of the world. Most of the things that are supposed to put you to sleep, hype me up like crazy. And lots (but not all) of the things that are supposed to hype you up, mellow me out, just not to the point of being sleepy. Most of the time I feel like I could stay awake indefinitely. I haven't known what natural sleepiness feels like for quite a long time now. Ambien has been the one thing I could count on for help in my nearly impossible quest for sleep.
Oh Ambien, please don't fail me now!
