That's awful. If Ambien did that to you, then your problems may stem from GABA anomalies. Perhaps you could look into Gabitril. It is prescribed for epilepsy, but I know of a couple friends who had it prescribed for anxiety, and they are doing quite well. Their anxiety was severe (they thought they were panic attacks). Good luck buddy! P.S. Are you currently on other meds, and have u had a physical including a thyroid test?

GABITRIL—A Selective GABA Reuptake Inhibitor (SGRI)
Increases GABA levels in vitro by selectively binding to GAT-1, the predominant GABA uptake transporter
Proven safety profile with a low potential for drug interactions
Linear pharmacokinetics offer predictable systemic exposure
More than 14 million patient days of exposure to GABITRIL therapy
The precise mechanism by which GABITRIL exerts its effect in humans is unknown
GABITRIL is indicated as adjunctive therapy in adults and children 12 years and older in the treatment of partial seizures.
