Customer Question

I Tried to take My life. I parked my car in front of my doctors office on a Sunday at 2 p.m. and took 19 ambien. around 7 p.m., I woke up and tried to drive for help. 2 blocks away I hit a curb, and was arrested for dui. I was taken to the hospital and got blood tested because ambien bottle was in my car. I voluntarily went to a Behavior Health Hospital for 8 days. this all happened due to Anxiety attacks. I had told My PCP and Psychiatrist the medication prescribed was not working to no quick avail. I do not have blood results yet....what should I do....Thank You...John B.

Ambien is not for anxiety attacks.
