Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
All of the symptoms I listed started after I began taking Ambien. I quit taking it after about 2 months. The symptoms have not gone away after 60 days.
From this study (4 months ago):
I had been given an antibiotic and an antiseptic mouth rinse. A thrush infection followed. I was treated for that but the coated tongue and cotton mouth persist.
From this study (10 months ago):
menstrual problems could be simply because of age (51).
