Thanks for the reply. I may mention that I am doubling the usual does of ambien just to get that sleep. The doctor has said this is okay since I wouldn't get any sleep at all If I didn't. I am a little confused after reading everyone else's experiences on here. Don't get me wrong, I feel like crap but I don't feel anything like what some people explain on here and I guess I am just wondering if there is a chance that it will get worse or anything like they are explaining? At this point I have no intention of taking anymore opiates even if offered. I wouldn't want to set back the WD symptoms at all.
