Doc just ordered a sleep study and recomended mellatonam(sp?). It is over the counter and helps reset your inner sleep clock. It is not a sleeping pill. Some people take a quarter of a tablet every few hours then when it gets dark they naturally get sleepy.
Or do what I do. Toss one off and fall asleep.

I took Ambien a few times but had to stop. There were a few instances when I woke up, there would be a burnt pizza in the oven while it was still on or some dry soup on the range. No fires but probably close calls. No more ambien fueled sleep walking hunger trips.

WTF? Are you saying you fell asleep before eating, or you were already in bed and later woke up and unconsciously put a pizza in the oven?

Same thing happened to me Sunday night/Monday morning. I was up to 6:00 am before I finally fell asleep.

Waking up at 7:15 am for work really sucked.

Already asleep, get hungry, get up, throw a pizza in, and then get back in bed. Then wake up in the morning, oven alarm going off, and a black crisp pizza in the oven. Done it a few times, the doctor calls them ambien cruises and it only happens to a small percentage of people.

I've read stories on CNN about those. Freaky.

Do you take any other sleep medication now?

Miller Lite, Blue Moon, or King Ludwig. I sleep fine now. I was just trying something out b/c I use to wake up a lot and not fall back asleep.

tylenol makes a product called simply sleep. It's tylenol PM without the tylenol part. It works great but you have to sleep at least 8 hours or you feel hungover.

I don't ride, I cook!

2000 BC : "eat this root"
1200 AD : "That root is heathen, say this prayer."
1500 AD : "That prayer is superstition, drink this elixir."
1800 AD : "That elixir is snake oil, Take this pill."
1900 AD : "That pill is ineffective, Take this antibiotic."
2000 AD : "That antibiotic is artificial, Here why dont you eat this root."

Melatonin...I used to take it, you have to take it regularly, and it takes a week or two to start working. Melatonin is just a natural chemical in the brain that responds to light/dark making you sleepy.
