Have any of the Ambien users out there experienced depression when taking Ambien? My doctor started me on it about 10 days ago. One 10mg pill each evening right before bed. I'm usually a cup is half full kind of person but this terrible depression has been sneaking up on me the last 4-5 days. I'm angry, sad and afraid I'm going to take someone's head off. I am never like this. I called my doctor and he said Ambien doesn't cause depression however, when I researched it on the web, it does say it is a side effect. Can anyone help me? By the way, even though I've been a member here for a while...and posted many replies, this is the first post I've initiated. Yippee!
