And like other people say you should starve for at least 4 hours before taking this medication as food (especially fatty foods) competes with Ambien http://buyingambienonline.com/
Possibly because of neighbor issues for years causing stress which finally started to impact my sleep, I tried over the counter meds with no success, then my doctor gave me Ambien and it works so well for me at 10mg, it does not always keep me asleep all night but at least it knocks me out and destroys any anxiety due to insomnia http://genericambienonline.org/
