Hi im a 46 years old women.Im healthy weight 149 lbs regular b/p.I could described that im a healthy women but i can't sleep.I depend for many years on ambien but i stopped because i noticed the change in my memory.I couldn't remember the majority of the things and like sometimes incoherent sentences.Then after seven years of not taking the ambien all the sudden i took it again but like around a month ago i stopped it because of the same problems that i explained before. I will like to gain my normal sleep again.What can i do? Do i still have some ambien in my system?

I have some suggestions for you to have natural sleep.
Avoid daytime naps.
Dont take fatty meals in dinner.
Avoid tea coffee alcohol in evening.
Practice deep breathing and meditation to keep mind calm.
Drink a glass of warm milk at bedtime.
Ensure adequate exposure to light in daytime.
Associate your bed with sleep only. Donot keep lying on bed idly.

Hope this helps.
