As Dr. Bob said, this reaction is common with sedative medications. Even though Ambien is not a benzodiazepine, it still can have this effect. I have seen this very, very frequently with Ambien and also that tolerance to the sleep effects occurs very quickly (if you take it every night, very soon it has no effect on putting you to sleep). I say run quickly away from Ambien and any other sedative medication. Do other things to help your sleep such as warm milk (releases tryptophan in the brain that induces sleep), warm herbal tea, getting up after 30 minutes of no sleep and doing something unpleasant like cleaning the house and then returning to bed when you feel sleepy, and also do not drink alcohol within 3 hours of bedtime and do not sleep more than an hour past your usual getting up time on weekends or holidays (keep that schedule regular).
