  • Understatement of the year

    Hopefully you can read the label… Ambien 10MG… and the sticker… “may cause drowsiness”. Yeah no kidding. This stuff knocks you out and keeps you out until it’s done — and when it’s done working, you wake right back up.
    I begged my doctor for some since I was having trouble sleeping and it got me on the right track in about a week. Ambien’s biggest flaw: it costs $3.25 a pill!

    • Ambien, the chemical sledgehammer.
      I love it, and since I work the midnight shift, I also seem to live on it.

    • I can see how one can become psychologically addicted to it. Supposedly Ambien isn’t physically addictive as well, but I don’t want to find out.
      Last night I took one since I slept very poorly the night before. I was out in about 20 minutes and slept for 7 hours straight. I don’t like how it seems to wake you up when it’s done, as I would’ve kept sleeping if it was “natural sleep”. But gotta take what I can get around here!

    • $3.25 a pill? Guess how much would it cost in canada, probably $8.00 or something. Lucky I’ve got medical insurance 🙂
