I have been on ambien for years. I stopped using it February 2010 and started sleeping normally Then my mom died in March 2010. I have been on it ever since. My prescription ran out this past weekend, and I had to go two days without it. Saturday night, I had magnificent dreams, three long sequences involving Woody Allen, hammers, and circus showgirls. Even though I didn't sleep very well, I woke up feeling like my brain had shaken off a fog, unleashing these dreams like hounds. But Sunday night was miserable. I didn't dream. I slept for what felt like five minutes but it had been two hours, and when I woke up, I was wide fucking awake. Monday was unbearable without sleep. I got the prescription filled and slept Monday night. I would really like to get off it so I can dream again.



  1. I have taken Ambein for over a year. very expensive, Ins required gernic, which is not as effective. However with the domestic brand I sleep walk, eat and do thing I don't remember. I also have short term memory loss.

    buy ambien

  2. ambien is my slavation, i take it not for sleep, but to stop the dreams.....................

  3. Not dreaming is a bad side effect of ambien for me. In the morning, if I sleep past the ambien, I will start to dream. I think of it as sleeping past the ambien alarm clock.
