Ambien

Wow, so I took Ambien last night and I don't think I'll ever take it again. For one, I woke up feeling awful (headache, upset stomach, tired) and two, I couldn't remember anything that happened. According to my husband, I knocked over the kitty's cup of water, fell twice, asked him to go sleep on the couch, posted comments on facebook. . .none of which I have the slightest memory of. How scary is that? If I ever do take it again, I'm going to have to ask my husband to lock me up before I go to sleep and hide my computer. Scary. Maybe my doctor will prescribe Lunesta. . .the little butterfly seems harmless enough.

Oh gosh, that's kinda scary! My Mother told me about a a woman who actually went out and bought a car while on Ambien. She had no recollection of it the next day. Crazy stuff!

Hmm...sounds like a typical night out on the town for me. Hehe.

I had a very similar experience myself. It is scary isn't it? Lunesta was better but still made me clumsy and forget things. Good luck!

Oh my gosh! That's NOT the result you were looking for! :( (however, kerry's comment made me smile, lol) I just can't wrap my mind around not being able to sleep! :( Hope the other works better....

but ambien cr is good... was a miracle pill at first; worked like magic.; dr says that may ptsd and anxiety are somewhat overriding its effects now when i tell him about my persistant insomnia tho i take everything he has described.
