Does ambien increase hair loss? I have noticed my hair shedding terribly since I have been taking it. Will it grow back?

Zolpidem
My weght loss doctor prescribed this to me to help with sleeping. I found for me personally I sleep walk with this medicine. I have conversations with my kids and will not even remember the next day. My daughter says she knows when I take the pill because my face looks different...like my muscles are relaxed. I stumble like im drumk. For some reason I feel the urge to sleep coming om but for some reason I fight it and find stuff to do that needs to be done around the house. Like I have anxiety about going to sleep. I sleep eat...which defeats the whole weight loss attempts. Sorry for any misspelled words. Typing this on my phone. I should be sleep now cause I took a pill...but once again I found something to distract me from falling asleep.its weird and hard. Its like I jave to allow myself to fall asleep but I was so use to falling asleep where ever or when ever I wanted to. Mow taking the pill is a form of adding structure to a sleep pattern and I rebel necause its new to me. Cutting off the t.v. causes anxiety somehow. I guess we have to train our bodies to a routine so eventually we wont need the meds. Just my thought
