First Attempt

Trial test of Zolpidem, a type of generic Ambien, 10 mg.

Took one tablet at 1:50am, read uintil 2:27am, turned lights out and went to sleep soonafter. I woke up with a smooth transition at 8:22am. This was slightly odd for two reasons, I usually wake immediately, it's like I have an onn\off switch, and also 6 hours of sleep is out at the very edge of what I normally get. As a result, I'd say that the Zolpidem did work though not with the exterme action that I've often heard ascribed to Ambien. I'll give it another shot tonight and see how well I sleep Sunday morning. Up to this point, a placebo would probably give similar results.

I'm going hiking in 4 hours so I'll probaly post a picture of two from that later on. Or maybe some cooking/baking experiment should one of those seem photo worthy.

Wiki says the effects usually begin with 15 minutes, were you sleepy when you went to bed?

Since your sleep/wake cycles are so erratic it may take some time to see a new sleeping pattern.
Hey... Just a thought -- Have you ever considered 5-HTP? I use it regularly these days with excellent results (It's a form of tryptophan)

Available in health food stores, at least up here.

Here's to getting better sleep!!
