Ambien Head Injury Causes and Reviews


Chances are you've bumped your head before. Often, the injury is minor because your skull is hard and it protects your brain. But other head injuries can be more severe, such as a skull fracture, concussion, or traumatic brain injury.

Head injuries can be open or closed. A closed injury does not break through the skull. With an open, or penetrating, injury, an object pierces the skull and enters the brain. Closed injuries are not always less severe than open injuries.

Some common causes of head injuries are falls, motor vehicle accidents, violence, and sports injuries.

It is important to know the warning signs of a moderate or severe head injury. Get help immediately if the injured person has

  • A headache that gets worse or does not go away
  • Repeated vomiting or nausea
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • An inability to wake up
  • Dilated (enlarged) pupil in one or both eyes
  • Slurred speech
  • Weakness or numbness in the arms or legs
  • Loss of coordination
  • Increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation

Doctors use a neurologic exam and imaging tests to make a diagnosis. Treatment depends on the type of injury and how severe it is.

Ambien Head Injury 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!
