  • Ambien is not good for you! You are probably sleep walking and don't even know it! My mother used to take it and would get up in the middle of the night and rearrange the furniture and not even know it.

  • Ambien would not take it too many side affects. Tylenol pm. is what I take.

  • I take ambien about 2-3 times a week. I also have sleep apnea so I am attached to a CPAP machine and can't get up. I've never had any side effects, and it makes me sleep like the dead! I love it!! I do find that I don't remember when I fell asleep though, but that doesn't bother me because I never take it until I get into bed.

  • I take ambien CR. I find with the CR, I don't do weird things like I do with the regular ambien. It also helps me sleep longer. It's the only medicine that has truly helped me sleep and I have been an insomniac for years.

  • I eat at night when I take Ambien. I ate a whole jar of olives one night. I have to be in bed when I take it. I also find it causes me to have problems remembering things during the day.

  • I took that stuff for about a year. It made me do some crazy, loopy things. For instance, "sleep eating." I would be in such a daze and get up in the middle of the night and cook without even being hungry. Never remember doing that until the next morning I would see dishes in the sink. Also, I would drive on the stuff. Uhhh, not exactly safe, but you can go into another world on that stuff. OOOhhh Ambien...what a mess.

  • I have been taking it for about 4 years now. My hubby always has these crazy stories of our sex, that I don't remember. If I eat something after I take it, I don't remember. I don't get out of bed or anything. Right before I fall asleep, sometimes I see weird things like my hubby's face changes. If I don't take it, I'm up for days, not fun.
