Ambien Dizziness Causes and Reviews


When you're dizzy, you may feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. If you feel like you or the room are spinning, you have vertigo. These feelings may make you lose your balance.

Dizziness can have many different causes. A sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated can make you dizzy. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Certain medicines and problems with your inner ear may cause Dizziness. So can motion sickness. Sometimes Dizziness can be a symptom of other disorders.

As people get older, they may have more health problems and take more medicines. This makes them more likely to have problems with Dizziness and balance.

Dizziness usually gets better by itself or is easily treated. If you are dizzy often, you should see your health care provider to find the cause.

Ambien Dizziness Reviews

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.
