lately my husband is very bothered by noises, especially quick sharp noises or loud voices... balls bouncing, motorcycles gooing by. Recently a person was behind us at a corner and a woman tapped her unbrella on the ground and he jerked from it. New noises or external noise stimuli are really becoming a problem for him. He is 59 and has severe insomnia.
Can Ambian cause sensory issues like being over sensitive to noise?
Added 14 Apr 2010:
Constant surrounding noise like music or hu of traffic does not bother him. He has been taking Ambien for 2 years. He has to take it after he has slept for a couple of hours. If he takes it early, he still will wake up at the same time. He has just gone for his second sleep study. Has not received the results yet, but the nurse said the reading looked like he did not have apnea. He snores so bad sometimes that he has to sleep in another room.
Actually, Ambien can cause some people to become hypersensitive. So it is possible that things are bothering him. He should talk to his doctor and see if maybe the doctor wants to try him on something else. There are a lot of sleep meds on the market... restoril, rozerem, lunesta, etc. Hope this helps.
