The PDR isn't a very good source of information on drug side effects -- its source is the pharmaceutical companies, and so it tends to be alarmist.

That said, you're just wrong about Ambien. There are a number of studies of long-term use of Ambien that show no significant tolerance, whereas you will find only isolated case reports of tolerance. I was not generalizing from my experience; I was offering it as a specific example of a general fact that can be obesrved.

> I donít know if tolerance ever wears off,

It does. You need to abstain from the drug (and similar drugs) for a while in order for it to become effective again, though.

BTW, like others, I'd appreciate it if you'd be more concise and less rambling. I have attention problems (improved since I started Ambien again, though) and it's hard for me to read your long and not-always-entirely-coherent posts.
