I've been reading everyone's posts and I can truly say that Ambien seems to be affecting more and more people in this regard than many might think. I'm an associate producer for the Montel Williams Show and we're currently doing research on Ambien addiction and sleep disorders in conjunction with a sleep clinic here in NY. If you're interested in trying to beat this addiction or if you would like to share your story regarding sleep disorders, you're not alone and maybe we can help.
Feel free to contact me any time for more information
Now in fairness Montel Williams usually plays this kind of thing straight but to suggest that "Ambien affects more and more people..." is the sort of claim that one hopes is placed in context.
