So frustrating.....please give advice/experience...I'm going crazy!
Long story short, I have horrible insomnia have for 6 years been on ambien cr. now I'm 7 weeks preggo, tried all the Benadryl and unison "safe" pills didn't work. Went to my family doc explained everything she said to try to hold out on taking anything till 8 weeks, then use the ambien as little as possible. I don't want to take it all because I would never forgive myself if something happened to the baby, she said it would be ok to try melatonin. Went to the store, got some, took 4 mg that night and it actually helped me a little, not great, but way better then nothing. Looked it up online tonight and there is stuff all over the internet saying how it's not safe in pregnancy, and can cause developmental disorders ect ect.... One lady even said her doctor told her not to take melatonin and gave her ambien instead. I am soooo confused, and frustrated, and exhausted , I can't sleep! I don't know if I need to get a different doctor because mine sucks or what. Please help!
