I have been taking sleeping medications now since 2002 ranging from over the counter to Ambien. Right now I am taking one Ambien and at least 2 to 4 over the counter sleep aids just to fall a sleep. I now know that I am addicted to them and I do not know how to get off of them. It is at the point where its getting scary on how many I have to take to fall a sleep. I am not working now so I know that is part of the problem. I sometimes mix the sleeping pills with about .50mg of Xanax which is also scary. Any ideas on how I can help myself get off of these? I have little to no money and no insurance so I really cannot go to the Dr. Thanks.
