Ambien Abnormal Behaviour Causes and Reviews


Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness. People who have it go through unusual mood changes. They go from very happy, "up," and active to very sad and hopeless, "down," and inactive, and then back again. They often have normal moods in between. The up feeling is called mania. The down feeling is depression.

The causes of bipolar disorder aren't always clear. It runs in families. Abnormal brain structure and function may also play a role.

Bipolar disorder often starts in a person's late teen or early adult years. But children and adults can have bipolar disorder too. The illness usually lasts a lifetime.

If you think you may have it, tell your health care provider. A medical checkup can rule out other illnesses that might cause your mood changes.

If not treated, bipolar disorder can lead to damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide. However, there are effective treatments to control symptoms: medicine and talk therapy. A combination usually works best.

Ambien Abnormal Behaviour Reviews

Mon, 29 Aug 2011

Have you tried Agrisept-L?

Sat, 27 Aug 2011

I have been taking Ambien for only ten days for insomnia prescribed by my doctor and had to stop because of an array of nasty side effects which I have organized into the following list:
Ambien side effects I experienced:

Shakes (Tremors)
Headache (Sometimes severe)
Muscle pain rigidity to the point of painful cramping knotting
Ringing in the ears (loud)
Difficulty swallowing/Throat pain-discomfort (Sometimes intense)
Dry mouth (Severe)
Nausea
Hallucinations: mostly visual/Strange body sensations/Tingling-zapping in muscles/twitching
Sweating profusely accompanied by dizziness/faintness simultaneously (Intermittent)
Racing heartbeat/Elevated blood pressure
Elevated anxiety/Fear response (Feeling of terror)
Paradoxical CNS reaction (Kept me awake-opposite of intended action)
Next day headache and muscle pain following use/General feeling of illness (After effect)

Age: 44
Gender: Male
Reason for taking Ambien: Chronic Insomnia – Dr. Prescribed
Effective? – No (Discontinued by user due to adverse side effects w/o benefit of intended action)

I would advise anyone to be very careful with this drug and to pay attention to any unwanted or serious side effects it may cause, oddly enough I did not experience any amnesia or events such as sleep walking, driving, or other bizzare behavior, only the physical symptoms I described here, some of which were quite unpleasant and scary, enough to decide this drug is not for me.

I would like to know if taking Ambien cr6,25 can make my tinnitus worse
Wed, 17 Feb 2010
I have taken 5mg of Ambien for years on and off. it really has helped me. Keep the dose low.
Mon, 13 Dec 2010
I am a 49 year old female who was presecribed Ambien 10mg for insomnia. I took the medication for two years. I developed parathesias throughout my body, mostly in my face; extreme muscle pain to the point of rigidity. My symptoms got so bad that I could not work. I ended up at Mayo Clinic trying to find out what was happening to me. Prior to going, I weaned off the Ambien and my symptoms lessened significantly. Mayo could not find any neurological or rheumatological causes for my symtoms. I beleive it was the Ambien causing all the problems. I've been off AMbien two weeks now and have little parathesias and little stiffness and pain. I can function!
Sat, 12 Mar 2011
My son took Ambien and committed suicide because of voices and no sleep.he blew his brains out with 500 win mag. left a 9 yr old son. divorced, no mother.
Mon, 30 May 2011
The same exact thing happened to my wife and our baby. A midwife prescribed Ambien and shortly after our baby was born stillborn. I know that Ambien is to blame!
