Both. It's easy to get high and even have hallucinations.

Just keep your fridge locked and your car keys hidden and you should do just fine.

You should google Ambien sleep-eating. It's both funny and sad at the same time.

I think I may need one tonight now. And now it's raining in the desert. Which is actually quite awesome.

Re: Ever take an Ambien to sleep?

A friend of mine went sleep driving and got in an accident. He felt very bad about it. Another side effect of Ambien is suicide, and he did that too.

I never knew that one of Ambien's side affects is opening random threads at dvdtalk.

To be fair, the text on screen is so small it is very hard to read.

If everything went according to plan, he felt better afterward.

Re: Ever take an Ambien to sleep?

Ambien causes you to remember way too many black people at Oktoberfest, purple aura cats turning into isosceles triangles, and Buddhist conflicts in your linen closet (where they judge you).

All of this, captured on audio, by my wife.

In 2008.

No more Ambien for me.

Not for anything anyone here could even possibly offer, ever.

Sadly, my wife refuses to erase the recording. When she's feeling particularly sadistic, she'll play it for guests after the 2nd or 3rd bottle of wine...

I guess a trip to Florida is in my future! What type of wine do you all like?

No. Other than being a fat fuck, I think I'm pretty healthy. I get healthy sleep.

Re: Ever take an Ambien to sleep?

I take melatonin occasionally, but haven't had anything truly interesting happen as a result of it.

I've always wanted to record myself (both audio and video) sleeping so I can watch myself later, kind of what this person did on this OLD tape I uncovered:
