Ambien Somnolence 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!
