I am so angry right now. I just went to get my prescription for Ambien refilled and my doc will no longer prescribe Ambien 10mg because other people can't follow the instructions properly. She will only allow the 5mg. The 10s are the only relief I have gotten from chronic insomnia in years and now I no longer can use it.

I can't believe that I am now going to have to suffer because of someone elses stupidity.

Hi Turkey,

Have you discussed other options with your doctor? There are other sleep medications that may be a safer choice for you.

Good luck
