Just refilled mine. I discontinued use back in Nov, and ask to start up/refill again the other week. Some Dr's can be anal, but most aren't.. But...... Insurance companies can be cunts. Yup, mine refused it this time and ask the Dr to approve it, shit cost $875. After it was approved it cost me $10. Why they did this when I never had an issue before beats me. But, yeah, just get a script.Just my 2 cents because I wasted a lot on buying online -- just get a script, doctors literally hand them out, especially in these times
Tell him that you fall asleep at the wheel a lot and you have a hard time staying awake, even with a good amount of sleep. I told my Dr the truth, that I fall asleep almost every time I drive in the AM. I take it first thing when I wake up, 45mins later I take a 5hr energy and I'm sailing for a while.I just might try getting a script from my doc for this too.

Shit makes you pee stink ha!
Lol I do sometimes fall asleep at my desk, even at times during my long-ass technical team calls and my colleagues think something is wrong with me haha...so that might do it.
Well that right there is a good enough reason, be sure to mention that to him, seriously.
But for myself unfortunately I need meds to go to sleep and I need meds to stay awake
I am the same fucking way. I am afraid to ask for modafanil script, I worry the dr will take me off ambien lol. Modafanil is like a miracle drug for me though, it makes me laser focused and feel great.
If you do shift work or have sleep apnea it’s easy to come by and have insurance pay. If not goodrx will cover it … did this before a recent at home sleep with lofta.
Well actually, your doctor just might think that it would be beneficial for you because in fact you do have a sleep condition, if you're on Ambien, like I used to be that right there is documentation that he's treating you for a sleep condition, and the result of having a sleep condition is not waking up feeling peppy, feeling lethargic and groggy.
The half-life with Ambien is so short, it's very unlikely the doctor would try to find a correlation with you feeling groggy the next day in the Ambien. This is why they have an additional option with a Time released Ambien , right when the one dose pretty much wears off the other one kicks in.
You definitely owe it to yourself to speak to the doctor and see what he says, even ask him to try you at a low dosage.
You absolutely nailed it with the "laser focused".. that is exactly how I am.
I take my sleep extremely fucking serious, I'm literally worthless if I don't get more than 7-8 hrs.
My sleep is so important to me that I even think about it during the daytime, my days literally are consumed with my meal timing and my bedtime. No joke.
I'm fixed and structured with a regimen, I have a program, it's how I'm wired.
Even with ambien I am lucky to get 4 or 5 hours of sleep on a good night. it sucks. I get stressed out as the day progresses because i know i will not be able to sleep when bed time comes which that has an impact on it lol. I need to get a strict bed time and stick with it, i think that would greatly help.
