    I have insomnia real bad.I was on the geneeric ambien but that stopped working. My doctor perscribed the real ambien, but was way to expensive. My insurance wouldn't cover it. I have been taking over the counter sleep aid for past 2 years. I'm now up to 50mg of diphenhydramine @ 4 pills per night. I started losing my memory,my name at times, ending up walking and not remembering how I got there. I thought it was menopause. Now my new doctor has told me of this sllep aide can cause memory loss. I'm now on trazadone.
