I recently took myself off Ambien which I had been taking for 4yrs now. After watching Dr. Oz and seeing the danger Ambien causes I decieded it was time. I bought Somnapure because the ad said it helps.. well I have been taking it now 3 days and I have been doubling the tablet dose just to get one hour of sleep. I don't feel anything as of yet. I guess either my body needs time to detox from the Ambien at this point. I take it as directed, one hour before 2 tabs...well 2 hours later I'm still wide awake and take another 2 tablets around 2 am. by 5:30am I am now forcing myself to at least get an hour in. it's hard.View Thread
