short term memory loss from long term Ambien use …

I too have raided the refrigerator, watched a movie, only to wake up to an empty bag of chips on the floor, an open bottle of wine on the counter, and none of it within immediate recall after being confronted by my wife.Usually I can remember bits and pieces of the night before.The adverse effects wear off.I typically can wake up within 4 hours and not feel any lingering effects, which is useful if I’m trying to nap before starting a night shift.Then I take a half tab before going to bed in the morning. I’ve been on Ambien most nights for the past 6 years, mostly because of shift work, flipping between night and day shifts, living in like a perpetual jet lag without any of the benefits such as collecting fond memories and exotic passport stamps…The first night I took Ambien I was amazed at what a good night’s sleep I had.Since then, it hasn’t been as profoundly restorative, but mostly better than the alternative.It ***** not sleeping.I’m aware that Ambien is only recommended for 7-10 days, and the clinical trials were in numbers of weeks, not years.Not much is really known about the long term effects, and it needs to be scrutinized.Unfortunately, I think it can be difficult to remove factors that contribute to cognitive impairment that exist alongside Ambien use, such as depression, anxiety, caffeine use, diet, lack of exercise, and sleep deprivation itself. I have periodically gone Ambien-free, but only for 2-3 nights at a time, which is only possible when I am caffeine free, and not subjected to the erratic schedule, and when I can exercise regularly.I had to re-learn how to sleep, and then only when completely off stimulants, and on a lighter work schedule.The longest I was off Ambien in the past 6 years, was maybe a week.Then there is coffee.There is nothing like it for energy and mood elevation when sleep deprived, or not wanting to be at work,or craving sleep, or staving off depression.Wake at 7am, go to work at 4 or 6pm, and don’t get home and in bed until 3 or 5 am.Or maybe go to work at 11pm, get to sleep at 10am, then get up for work at 5:30am a couple of mornings later.
