From this study (5 years ago):
for me I go to the doctor after I have tried the medicine for about 6 months. Some medicines you take and immediately know that they are working. The side effects that bother me the most is my memory loss and insomnia. The ambien worked like a charm for about the first year that I took it and now three years later, I have added Benadryl to assist with the whole insomnia thing. Doctor reccommended doing this instead of going up to a higher dose of ambien. I've also tried melatonin with little succes. The anti deprssent (Lexapro 10mg) does help my depression a lot, but it leaves me with the chronic "no libido" syndrom.
