Ambien is covered by most insurance or not? I am at a loss here... I had went to the Doctor and he prescribed me Ambien for sleep and Celebrex for pain. Well when I went to get them filled they said my insurance doesn't cover Ambien so they called the dr and the next thing I knew I was going home with Amitriptyline? Where does a SLEEP aid and an Anti-depressant = same effect? When I called to let them know that the Amitriptyline was causing MAJOR headaches they switched me to Zoloft... Now I am going on 6 days with NO sleep.... I am calling in the morning... If I can remember!!! The fog is so heavy I can't find the front door..
