I take 30, sometimes 60, though. I find 30 knocks me right out and keeps me out for around 5 hours but I sometimes wake up repeatedly, hence taking 60, but the issue for me is the awful hangover that keeps me in a fog for hours after I get up when I take 60. It affects my performance at work it's so bad. Now I am combining Ambien CR with 30 mg of Tamazepam and seem to be doing pretty well, still some waking up, but I am sleeping better overall and feel more rested, though now I have strange dreams. Not nightmares, just really weird and I wasn't much of a dreamer before.

thanks for your help, like I said I'm only on 10mg, It seems to be the right balance for me, I'm trying to avoid taking them every night thyough and only when I need to.
