Ok I take sleeping pills to help me sleep at night other wise wide awake. Well last night I took some Ambien and ended up texting with my youngest daughter but I don't even remember it and then I put a post up on my FB about how I can't slap the stupid out of somebody so I might have to run them over and see if that would help! Well I went on FB and removed the post lol now I'm a bit scared to take any more because of last night... But at least it wasn't to bad and I didn't go outside or do anything else strange just texting and posting lol. :)

My husband took an Ambien and drove in the middle of the night with our then 3 yr old and apparently hit the curb and busted a tire.  he put our 3 yr old to sit on the trunk and went in the car to get his Ipad after calling my Mother to come get her but ended up passing out in the front seat all while our helpless daughter sat on the trunk of the car in the middle of the night in the parking lot of a gas station.  Luckily nothing happened except that i nearly divorced him and quickly got rid of those pills and let him know that if he took them again that he would be served with divorce papers the next day because I will not have my children's lives put at risk for his stupidity!

No...... really I have never fallen asleep after taking it. I have tried it several times. I do have a high tolerance to medication

I would not be ok with that. There are way too many other options to deal with those side effects. I would look at some alternatives and never take the other without someone babysitting me.

I overdosed on Ambien because I didnt remember taking them. I went back for another pill 20 mins after the first one.. then another 5 mins later.. repeat every 5 mins at most until i had enough that I was incoherently texting dh and he knew something was up.
