Ambien

Now, Rep. Kennedy, who ran into a capitol barricade at 2 a.m. this morning and stumbled out claiming he was late for a vote is claiming he wasn't drinking but was disoriented from prescription medication he had taken. Most notably amongst the two drugs is the sleeping medication Ambien.

Even as I write this, there are unconfirmed reports that Patrick Kennedy will enter rehab (for a sleeping pill addiction or alcoholism?)

My neuroscience lecture on sleep made the claim that Ambien is the third most common prescription drug found in drivers stopped for recklessness. The more I think about it, the less impressive that seems. But the point is, Ambien + Driving is becoming a big concern. Including incidents of sleep driving.

Anonymous Ambien Prescription Information said...

My name is Catherine Snow and i would like to show you my personal experience with Ambien.

I have taken for 1 years. I am 57 years old. Works great if I take it on an empty stomach, and get right into bed. If you take it and try to keep yourself awake, you can override the pill and be up all night.

Side Effects :
None.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Catherine Snow

The highly popular sleep medication ambien is used for short term sleep treatment only, i.e. for 7 to 10 days and it is known that Ambien is a prescription-based drug and hence should be used only after getting hold of a doctor’s prescription. Use Ambien as per the instructions of the doctor to cure your sleep problems and bear in mind that this medicine is likely to become ineffective if used for a long term and hence the use of this drug should be strictly supervised by a physician.
