Lil,  Thanks that was a great article.. I need to gain some weight and since I don't leave the house ever maybe these drugs would be good for me..  Just kidding..  Have to have some humor sometimes!!!!

Ryleigh,
Thanks for the chuckle as always.  tongue   You usually make light of dreary situations... it's refreshing and always welcome.  :-)

I've been taking Ambien pretty frequently lately because I was lying there in bed like a spaz for weeks on end; my heart would be racing from my dumb thyroid.  I love Ambien but don't want to take it for too long; it definitely could become a dependency issue!  But I've never woken up surrounded by a bunch of Snickers wrappers, HA!

Haha...I was taking Ambien for my insomnia about 6 months ago. I was laying down after I took my pill when my nightstand went technicolor and reared up on its back legs. Not the first time I'd hallucinated on those things, but definately the most vivid. I dumped the rest of pills in the toilet.

Ambien can have some pretty weird side effects. There are some sites that people post about certain drugs and you would be surprised how strange some of the side effects of drugs can be. It is called Askapaient. Anyway, Ambien tears my stomach up bigtime. Not painful, just very uncomfortable, feels like I have to go all the time (I don't) and if I take more than a couple days goes right into IBS like problems. I don't have the same experience with Lunesta though it gives me a little headache but doesn't last. I think the Ambien works better and more consistently but will have to stick with Lunesta. Insomnia is worse for me than IBS and like IbS no cure.
