    Any one here had a bad reaction to regular ambien? Am wondering if it is causing this chronic sinus and dry red eyes as Ambien CR did a number on me a while back. The dr suggested Flexril instead?

    I have been on Ambien for about a decade, yes you heard correctly, and no it isn't a good thing but neither is no sleep.

    I have never had the chronic sinus or dry eyes you are talking about. I take the regular 10mg Ambien not the CR. For some reason there is a two hour hole of no sleep in the middle of my night when I take the CR.

    As with every drug there is, everyone reacts differently. Keep plugging in your question to stay at the top, till someone answers. Someone will eventually have an answer and that person will most likely react the same on a lot of other meds as well.

    Good luck with the ambien, and p.s. flexeril NEVER worked for me. Then I have tried most of the sleepy drugs and have still come back to ambien
