In reply to ambien, posted by Karen on July 3, 1998, at 15:46:03

I know a significant amount of people who have had bizarre experiences with ambien. Don't shy away from meds, as someone suggested. 20mg of ambien is a hefty dose. I have had my own experiences with high doses and have hallucinated, exlusivelly in visual terms - like a face changing expressions on a picture. Or what's on T.V. becoming a conglomerate of parts mimiking something that is loose, has no relation in common logic. Ambien is good for elderly people - 5-10 mg, if that. The benzodiazepines will not only put you to sleep, they will, if you choose correctly, KEEP you asleep. Perhaps you have anxiety, in which case you could kill two ducks with one pill. I also believe that ambien's memory effect at 20mg may cause obsessional thinking. i.e. You "have" to know about a particular sentence you said to your friend last night, bacause you were in a hypnotic state and might have actied inappropriately, the point being that you DON"T KNOW what you said, and this could, G-d forbid, lead to obssesions, warranting not just a benzo, but an ssri, etc. Try different benzos perhaps. Memory is quite important...
