My son took ambien, and I have. I have liver disease and can't tolerate most drugs. The ambien did cause weird symptoms in me if I remember, and kept me up all night. It stopped working for my son, who used to take it to come off his Ritalin for ADHD when he was on it. He said it made him feel weird and didn't work.
I take klonopin at night for restless leg, and it helps me sleep and is very addicting, like valium, but I have been on the same dose forever and it still works. I don't crave taking more or anything, but if I don't take it, I know it.
I'm sorry you have all that wrong. I can relate. I get stiff patches around my wrists, they never biopsy, but they go away with pred or upping my plaq. Last time I got it on my face and it was tanned and hairy, but went away. I also have vitiligo and hyperpigmentation. Its a bummer. I look like a calico cat.
I hope that you figure out what is going on. Did they check your liver and thyroid and ammonia? Those things might be good for them to check if they havent.
Thanks for posting! I hope to read more.
