ManWitPlan Posted November 23, 2011 Share Posted November 23, 2011 My last doc got me off of ambien because he said it negatively effects brain development in people under 25. I have yet to come across a sleeping pill that doesn't have cognitive, neurological or metabolic effects. So is there anything out there that doesn't cause memory problems, metabolic syndrome/ movement disorders etc? Or are these all they have? Or how about this question I am trying to decide whether I should take seroquel, trazodone or ambien. All three seem to cause me problems. The seroquel causes me restless legs/ akathisia. Trazodone didn't seem to do a good job with keeping me asleep. I took it at 8 pm one night and was in the bed for 3 hours before I gave up and took ambien. As far as the ambien/ ambien cr I took it around 8 pm like the trazodone and it seemed to not have worked cause I was up around 11-12 clock. Lets say I take it at 8 pm and if im lucky fall asleep at 11 pm. Then I wake up at 5 am then take more pills and wake up at 12 pm. Then when I try and take the pill at 8 pm im usually up at 12 am. Its possible I just woke up too late and thats why it took so long to sleep I dunno. But if you guys have any sleep tips or suggestions let me know.
