Newspaper Article about Ambien

Hi everyone, I brought an article into my dr. about the Ambien and read some of the postings causing cancer. He said he would change my Ambien if I wanted to but the other sleeping aids have many, many side effects and are like a tranquilizer. Since I don't want that I'm going to stay on the Ambien.

I also spoke with my pharmacist about this and he said many times companies want to compete against each other & say certain things so that you'll switch to their brand/co. I do believe that.

There have no actual studies that taking Ambien aids in cancer.

    I'm still working on getting the source of the Ambien information presented at the naturopathic conference. I had great luck with sleep when I started taking GABA. I also learned that my oxygen levels at night were dropping. Now I have an oxygen compresser that feeds me oxygen at night. This has helped immensely.

    Ambiem also has side effect it is know to cause sleep walking. There are people who were driving while a sleep and even having sex and still not awake and don't remember it the next day. I took it and it did not help with my sleep and when I did fall alseep I did sleep walk mom kept me from doing anything. I was a sleep walker as a child so I don't know if that makes a difference. I now take trazadome anywhere from 100 to 200mg a night just depends on who bad my sleep has been. As you can see it is five am and I am still up so 200mg tomorrow night.

    Love, Hugs, and Prayers
