Jimmyboy posted a topic in Introductions and updatesHi All, I've been on Ambien CR for nearly 10 years. Began to develop tolerance 5 years ago, So Psych Doc added 10mg of regular ambien (initially it was 5mg for breakthrough and later on it became 10 mg after couple of years. Also have Chronic anxiety. Was on lexapro for 8 years. anxiety improved after being diagnosed with moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea and started on CPAP. Sleep doctor told me my anxiety would go off with the CPAP. Didn't belive her, but nearly 4 months into CPAP 75-80% of anxiety was down. Therefore with permission of PD tapered off lexaapro over 3 months. No problems. Y
