Ask Dr. Gott 1/17

DEAR DR. GOTT: Is it possible that stopping Ambien after nine years of chronic use could lead to interrupted sleep? I usually wake three times a night because of nightmares. I also don't remember anything in the morning. I am a widow and 80-ish. My medications include Hyzaar, Toprol, Boniva, Lipitor, Paxil, clonazepam and methadone. What could be causing my nightmares? I would appreciate your opinion on this matter. Also, I suffer from pain in my hip, which I believe is due to an old break and sciatica. I have to use a walker.
