Re: Sudden onset stuttering as side-effect (Age 25), never stuttered before

I have very little scientific knowledge of stuttering, other than that I saw a youtube Vice video of how ambien can mysteriously help some people with neurological speech impediments. It's probably not super relevant for you, but it might pique your interest at least!
Yes, the nurse practitioner is the prescriber.

I agree, I have stopped taking it. I agree, it might be a good idea to get a second opinion. After digging online, it's a very rare side-effect but has been reported before. Supposedly if I stop taking the drug for a few days to a few weeks, it should go away.

That's really interesting, thanks.
