  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • pat on Jun, 4, 2014:

    I also used Ambien for more than 5 (or 7?) years and suddenly was B-12 deficient. I used Ambien every night for fibromyalgia for that many years before having symptoms of B-12 deficiency. When tested, was dangerously low and had weekly shots for 6 weeks before converting to tablets daily. Am now within range; no longer on Ambien.
