Zolpidem (Ambien)

The nurse suggested that I try something like Zolpidem for achieving deep sleep (I have Fibromyalgia/CFS). I will be going to the Dr. next week. Anyone who has taken this before, what are your experiences? If you weren't getting deep sleep were you able to attain it while on ambien?

might find this of interest: Fibromyalgia treatment: Does Neurontin relieve symptoms

From what I know of neurontin and ambien, neurontin seems like it would be a better choice if it works for you.

Neurontin is also available as generic (or it was at some point, I think there was a legal battle, not sure how it turned out)

As it says in the linked article, it would be an off-label use, so there hasn't been much testing done in using it at night only - it's unclear if there are negative effects doing what would amount to a daily withdrawal from it (Gabapentin elimination half-life is 5 to 7 hours)
