I plucked all my eyebrows and gave myself a haircut once after taking one. Talk about being shocked looking in the mirror the next morning. I'd rather not sleep than take that shit again.

They have. Look up ambien zombie driving


Quoting happehcrone:

Ambien (and other sleeping pills) have various side effects.  One can be doing things of which you have no memory.  In this case though it just sounds like the pill hit you really hard and you totally zonked out -before you even knew you were getting sleepy - hence sleeping with the chips.  A lot of those prescription sleep meds will tell you not to take them till you are actually ready to go to bed, and that's why.  Imagine if someone took one and tried to drive a car, or even do something around the house and that happened??  Indeed they don't work the same for everyone (they don't work at all for me - they just make me irritable lol).  But one should always be careful with a new prescription, no matter what it's for - until you know how it affects you.

It can definitely can cause memory loss. I have that issue. It rarely makes me sleep eat though.

I took an ambien one night and apparently shaved down below. I have no idea how I did not cut myself. Another night I was screaming in our bedroom that the dryer was killing me.

Ambien caused my uncle to kill himself in his sleep. He had only been taking it for 3 days. He had a wonderful family, great life, no worries. No reason why he would kill himself. Yesterday was 1 year since his death and no one in my family can get over it. Please stop taking it.

They aren't aware that they are doing it.

I had a friend go out and steal a ton one night. She has no memory

I don't know about all the crazy supposed side effects.  I've been taking it occassionally for years for insomnia and have never had a single side effect, although I do only take a half of one at a time.  Like everything, I take all these stories with a grain of salt.

 XD I think we're talking about the same thing...only different lol.  The "stupid thing"  I'm talking about is people either not reading or disregarding warnings, and/or failing to use appropriate caution when starting on a new prescription.  Actually even OTC drugs can be dangerous to some folks, depending on other meds they might be taking (drug interaction), sensitivity/allergy to the drug (which in extreme cases could be fatal) and/or medical conditions.  Whether or not one can be held responsible for things they did while being in a state during which they claim to have no memory - well THAT could be the subject of an entirely different discussion.  I'm not familiar with case law precedents regarding meds, but I believe there are some regarding sleep-walking...the defense in the particular case I'm thinking of (husband murdering wife while "sleepwalking") failed. Anway lol FWIW 8)
