The consensus among the Ambien users who were stating they did not have any side effects said they would go directly to bed after taking it. There were also a few who posted that said they were not having any side effects with Ambien. Also, users do need to give themselves eight hours of sleep on this medication as well.
The FDA has no concern for our welfare and safety as far as I’m concerned and they know when these drugs are put out on the market what side effects the medications will cause.

I recently posted a topic on the dangers of Ambien, as reported by Fox News. Judge for yourself whether you want to risk taking this drug. I found this information on a CFIDS and FM message board that is very popular. I have been reading of more people who have become “Ambien statistics” and you will be amazed at what this drug is doing to people.
It does have side effects, but what drug doesn’t. I have been taking Ambien for over a year because of severe migraines. I take it and go directly to bed. The pros outweigh the cons. Unfortunay traditional and nontraditional methods of treating my migraine problem have not worked (I have been to every type of doctor I could think of, leaving ‘no stone unturned’). If I was not taking Ambien, I would not be able to sleep, period.
However, I was not able to fall asleep with this drug and I, like many others, would wake up “sleep eating”. I also had hallucinations and would have full conversations with my husband that I did not remember. Here is my problem, I also took Ambien and followed the above directions.
Where is the FDA in all of this and WHY for God’s sake is this drug still on the market?. The other problem I have is that apparently this drug has been doing more harm than good, especially when people are not staying asleep, are getting up in the middle of the night and driving around technically in a trance state.

Hi Cherrie, Thank you for commenting. The side effects can be very severe with Ambien and many people are putting themselves and other innocent people in danger. I am glad to here that you are doing okay on Ambien. Take care and I hope you feel better. What my problem is with drugs like these are that there are a lot of people having side effects and these side effects are known before the drugs are put out on the market. I do understand what it is like to not be able to find anything that will help a symptom, so I can sympathize with you there.
I’ve had friends take it and be knocked out for 12 hours straight. My grandmother insists on taking something for her inability to sleep and this has had the worst effect on her. My grandmother has taken Ambien and has experienced side effects such as irritablity, loss of appetite, drowsiness, dizziness and more. Obviously this a medicine that reacts strongly with some people and needs to be researched.Ambien dangers
