My doc just prescribed Ambien as I have not been able to sleep much. The first night I took it, I slept for 5-6 hours straight but when I woke up I couldn't go back to sleep. I felt a little funny the rest of the day but I also wasn't dragged-out tired.
My doc told me not to take it every night. So, I skipped a night. The next time I took it, I woke up several times but went right back to sleep until around 6 am (went to sleep about midnight). Later in the morning, I had some serious nausea. It went away after an few hours.
I took it again last night as I need the sleep. Again, I woke several times and finally got up about 5:30 (went to sleep around 11pm).
Well this morning, I got horrible nausea and ultimately ended up vomiting. I also felt "weirded out" like I was going a bit nuts. Needless to say, I'm not taking anymore.
Have any of you Ambien users ever experienced anything like this?
Thanks in advance for your response.
