Hi, I was wondering if any of you have tried the newer Ambien CR? My doctor prescribed it for me last week. He refuses to refill my prescription for Ativan - which works far better for me. It really helps with my anxiety and insomnia and it doesn't make me feel weird. The Ambien CR makes me feel 'drugged' and spaced out. I hate that feeling. Not sure what to do. Guess I'll have to go to a mental health practitioner and ask him/her to prescribe the Ativan for me.
