Consult w/the doctor that put you on it. S/he will help you taper off. No
matter what, you will have some withdrawal symptoms, but since you've been
on Ambien for a short time, it won't be that difficult. You'll be
"uncomfortable" for a bit, but if you're seriously wanting to get off this
med, you can do it!! I had to taper off 4 mgs. of Xanax in 30 days. I'd
say I had a few days where I felt 'weird', but since a doctor was helping
with the taper, I felt safe.
I wish you well.
