Sleep Tight, thanks to Ambien

I can’t believe all of the stories coming out about Ambien, the sleeping pill. Having never taken it, I can’t say whether it’s good or bad. However, my Running Husband Mike had an interesting experience that can only be likened to an acid trip of the best kind! At Jason’s Farewell party, we got on the subject of the Ambien press as of late…It’s causing people to drive off the road and sleep walk. My favorite is that it caused one woman to binge eat and gain 100 lbs. She would sleep walk to the kitchen in the middle of the night and stuff her face with cookies, chips and ice cream. First of all, why do you have all of that crap in your house in the first place??? Buy some spinach lady. I guarantee you’ll sleep through the night.

I was skeptical of all of these recent lawsuits until Mike told us his story. It seems that he and his REAL fiance’ Hava took Ambien and didn’t go straight to bed as instructed by the prescription. He thought it best to do some internet searching when the hallucinations began. The screen and words were moving around…The cast members on the “Lost” website were moving and “jockeying for position” on the page(his words, not mine). He attempted to go to bed and Hava recounted some hilarious conversations he was trying to have, including asking her to give him a pedicure!! I know Mike and I can assure you that he is not a “pedicure guy.” Hava, of course, is freaking out because she’s not experiencing the same effects. In fact, she’s just probably freakin’ tired and wants to go to sleep by this point.

They woke up the next morning and Mike remembered NOTHING!! weird…….(X-files music)

WARNING: Do not take Ambien…unless you want a pedicure.

  1. Now just for clarification, I told Hava to do my toenails, NOT to “give me a manicure”. There is a difference….uhh…right?

  2. My name is Catherine Snow and i would like to show you my personal experience with Ambien.I have taken for 1 years. I am 57 years old. Works great if I take it on an empty stomach, and get right into bed. If you take it and try to keep yourself awake, you can override the pill and be up all night.Side Effects : None.I hope this information will be useful to others,Catherine Snow

  3. The highly popular sleep medication ambien is used for short term sleep treatment only, i.e. for 7 to 10 days and it is known that Ambien is a prescription-based drug and hence should be used only after getting hold of a doctor’s prescription. Use Ambien as per the instructions of the doctor to cure your sleep problems and bear in mind that this medicine is likely to become ineffective if used for a long term and hence the use of this drug should be strictly supervised by a physician.
