I was prescribed Ambien a month or so ago because I was going through bad depression phases from lack of sleep. Now, I am 1 week away from having my baby, and want to get off of it before the baby is born. I am afraid of him going through withdrawal symptoms. The first night I didn't take it I was awake all night and a total wreck the next morning. Don't want to do that again.
So what's the best way to ween off of it? And is there something safer to take to help me sleep? Like melatonin, or is that safe during pregnancy?

OMG! They gave me Ambien in the Hospital the night before I delivered my Son and I hallucinated about little people running around my room all night. I had the worst sleep ever! I can't imagine taking that regularly. Talk to your Doctor.
