Hi there, thanks for asking. If nothing especial has been noted in the sleep report, you probably suffer from chronic insomnia
. It is the most common psychiatric problem. 11 percent of the population suffer from it, although some cases are mild. Ambien
is a good medication for chronic insomnia and it is better to be combined with some behavioral and cognitive skills to conquer insomnia. One third of the cases improve with using just a relaxation method, like Yoga
regularly. One other third take advantage of behavioral technics which are: 1-sleep restriction (not being in bed for more than 20 minutes awake, etc) 2-control high arousal sates (no watching TV in 2-3 hours before sleeping, etc) and 3-regular sleep schedule (not nap, etc). The last third can take benefit from cognitive therapy
for chronic insomnia which could be done with a therapist. After establishing a good sleep, doctor can decrease the regular dose of Ambien to just "as needed" (like removing the cast from a healed broken bone). I wish you the best health.
