Extreme (Dangerous) Sleepiness
I took a Zyrtec tablet about 5:00 pm then a Zolpidem (generic Ambien) at 9:15. Great night of sleeping, but was able to get only just under 7 hours. Suffered extreme tiredness and irritability all day and will NEVER take these two drugs together again. I just didn't think about an interaction.
I had to drive 60 minutes each way to work and the drive home was scary. I probably shouldn't have done it.
Couldn't figure out why the Zolpidem had this effect on me, then I realized I'd taken a Zyrtec as well.
DO NOT DO THIS!
The first time I used ambien, I took 2 actually and I was knocked out, I ended up in the hospital cause I did not knew anything, and I real vomited. The next time I took another 2, well I was home and was a bit knocked out but not as much as the last time, still alot of vomiting. And yesterday I took 1 and all I did was vomited, I did not even sleep away. Everytime I took these tablets was because I was frustrated and fed up of life. Fed up living. Anyone know what to do to relieve stress and anxiety. I am so fed up of life and I want help. Are there any tablets or anything?
I'm prescribed both medications I just wanna make that it's safe to take both???
Bad Sleep Aid, Great Creativity Aid
I've been on Ambien twice, and both times I only got one month's worth of pills without follow-up, because it's really not that great a drug for me. I need to get in bed about 30 mins after I take it, because if I'm not in bed when the pill kicks in, I probably won't go to bed. And even when I am in bed, sometimes Ambien will convince me to come out and play. When I do come out to play, it's usually great experience. I get inspired to draw, do graphic design, and I even attempted to write a song once (I'm not musically inclined and the end product was like an orchestra of nails scratching down a chalkboard.). But Ambien made me really dedicated to my tasks, down to perfecting every detail, which led to a surprisingly good final product for the graphic design and drawing work.
The reason I'm not too keen on Ambien is because: 1) It's still 50/50 that I'll sleep through the night, 2) It makes me feel like there's a lump in my throat, which caused me to vomit one time, and 3) It can also inspire me to do stupid things, like push between 2 wood crates/boards to get to the back of a closet because something I wanted *might* have been there. It wasn't, and I came out with bloody scratches all over my torso.
