    LOL. I wonder if anyone posting here has taken them and had things happen? I never take sleeping pills for fear of doing something crazy.

    This is the ONLY sleeping pill that helps my insomnia (it's Ambien in the states).....but only if I take it like once a week. Any more than that and I'm practically climbing the walls two hours after taking it.

    I was going to say Ambien gets similar reports!

    I took it for a while and I never did anything fun or interesting.

    I would kill for a pill that made me clean the house in my sleep.

    My 29yo daughter was given Ambien for a couple of years due to her RA and inability to sleep. We found she was getting up in the middle of the night and writing emails to various people (including her ex-bf)! She had NO IDEA until we started showing them to her with her horrid spelling and broken phrases. Some made no sense at all! She even got up and tried to cook, but my other daughter found her and stopped her! She was sound asleep! Her MD immediately changed her medication and as far as we know...the episodes stopped. She never showed signs of sleepwalking in the past.

    Like Lisa and Jessie, I've taken Ambien. Took it off and on for years. Nothing exciting to report.

    But if it had made me do chores, my partner would be dropping pills into my dinner.

    I thought we had a thread about Ambien several months ago.

    I have had insomnia since I was 12 years old and have tried all kinds of medications... some so strong that I'd sleep for 16-18 hrs and piss the bed.. by the time I was 15 I was addicted to pills. Any pills- so long as it had the little orange sticker on it that stated the medicine "May cause drowsiness".

    When my Bipolar is under control and I'm stable, Benadryl works fine for putting me to sleep but when I'm manic or "out of wack" in any way I have to take stronger things such as Halcion, Seroquel or Thorazine in order to sleep and stop the cycling.

    About a year ago we (My Pdoc and I) decided to try me on new sleep medicines because I tend to like the buzz from Narcotics and I'd really rather not have them in my possession (I'm an addict, what can I say? LOL). Sonata, Ambien and Lunesta (The hypnotic class of sleep meds rather than the Narcotic, "addictive" type)were on the list of the new sleep meds I tried.

    None of them made me tired or gave me a "buzz" and because of that, I'd be unable to fall asleep. What they did do was make me black out. I had mornings where I'd wake up with my husband mentioning what a great job I did cleaning up the house before I went to bed... I had dreams that were SO vivid that I honestly did not know that they were only dreams- I thought I'd actually done what I'd dreamed.

    I recall reading a story one time about a husband who killed his wife while walking in his sleep (he was on Halcion for sleep) and he had NO memory of it. I doubted the story at the time but since my Ambien issues I often wonder if perhaps he truley had no idea!

    Blah blah blah... anyway- I went off the Ambien because although I'm not a violent or irresponsible person, I was afraid I'd end up driving or doing something crazy while I was in a black out from it.

    Oh, it would be way too convenient to have a side effect that actually helps me accomplish something! :D
