Does anyone know? My pharmisist and midwife weren't sure. I've been taking .5mg of Ambien for the last four months, since finding out about Lydia Ann's diagnosis. Now that she is here and living (praise God!) I'd like to try and go off of the ambien, however I tried last night and my mind just races with all of the unknowns with lydia's health, etc. etc. etc. So a friend of mine said that melotonin (sp?) has helped her. Does anyone know if I can take it while breastfeeding? Which is the better choice .5mg of ambien or melatonin?
