    My Rheumy, who is so knowledgeable about Fibro treatment told me that in the next few months the patent is expiring on the Ambien. So it will be available in Generic form, which makes me very happy. It was so expensive before and I had to switch to restoril which doesn't work as well. I can't wait!

    I have been paying a little over a 100.00 for 30 pills a month. A bit rediculous. I am so glad to know this. Thanks for sharing.

    My rhuemy told me the same thing last week, I also asked for the new ambien cr and he said it is the same as ambien but way more expensive, needless to say I am not trying it. glad to hear some other dr said the same.

    I have tried the ambien cr too. It did nothing for me. Reg. Ambien works better, in my opinion. But, everything works diff. on diff. people. It was also about the same price as reg. ambien or it is here. East Texas.

    My Dr. told me this also.
    Although I have ins. my co pay is 25.00.

    When it goes generic I will only have to pay 10.00.

    So that means I can pay for another one of my
    generics and have change left.

    I am so grateful that I have ins. I don't know
    how you all manage with out ins.As it is even with
    it all my co pays add up to over 200.00 per mo.

    Then I have to pay 255.00 monthly for my insurance
    premium.

    We are a pitiful bunch. Every body sick and in pain,
    can't get the sleep we need, and nobody seems to care
    wheather we live or die.


    Gosh! I am sorry that I rambled on like this.
    I guess it just had to come out.

    I surely hope we can all get some pain free rest
    tonight, a have a better tomorrow.

    that is the best news I've heard all month. My ins company stopped covering my ambien and it's been a beaurocratic nightmare trying to figure out how to appeal.
