Hi and welcome.
When did you start taking ambien?
Thanks for reply.
It should be effective by now. I would recommend you to followup with your doctor and you can request an alternative medicine like lunesta. You need prescription from your doctor for this. Chamomile tea at bed time would be helpful.
Let me know if you have further questions.
