I’m taking 5mg of ambien to help me sleep. I’m having terrible ringing in my ears. Has anyone else experienced this as a side effect from ambien???

    Hi Mary,

    No i have not on Ambien but i have when i was on Anti Depressants for a while. It will pass probably. It could also be anxiety related.

    Unfortunately it is to do with taking benzos and I have it and the more you stress about it the worse it gets.

    I have to sleep with my radio on to distract me .

    I have had the ringing for a long time, using Benzos.  I have read that it can definitely be a side effect.  I am off benzos now for 10 days and the ringing goes on.  But it isn't as bad as it was. Have you read about Ambien or benzos side effects and w/d with prolonged use?  BenzoBuddies gave me lots of information.
