Upon waking in the mornings, I feel tired and aggitated. I get mad over the least little thing--my hair, my clothes, everything upsets me. I feel like I am someone totally opposite of the kind of person I really am. I don't feel like myself anymore at all. I sometimes think that I would be better off if I were dead. Have no reason for living. I don't enjoy anything now. I have developed a rash on my neck and upper back that feels like an allergic reaction to metals that I have, but even if I don't wear jewelry, I still break out and nothing seems to help.
Does Ambien make you feel angry and hostile toward others?

My husband uses Ambien to cope with jet lag when he travels to and from Asia.
It makes him incredibly irritable, which normally I can deal with. This time, we are dealing with settling as estate for a deceased Aunt. Every little thing is making him fly into an accusatory rage. This is a very real side effect. It is hell. He's so irrationally angry this time, I don't dare bring up that I think it's the Ambien.
I absolutely can not believe the change in my mood from this little pill! At first (30)days I was fine taking it. Now im a monster! I'm either crying or raging.
My wife took ambein twice. TWICE! Two nights in a row. She went from being the sweetest lady on the planet to Satan! She was hostile and angry. She said some hateful thing (even to our children) It was like I didn't even know her. She remembered nothing. She had no memory of those 48 hours of ambein hell. It effects some people this way. Stay away from this stuff, it's dangerous and by the way ambien didn't even make her tired or sleepy.
yes this drug can make you hostile angry, walk around crying and feeling like you want to die and don't know why. try melatonin it works great for me and no side effects do you have a lot of drug sensitivities like i do. seem we have a lot of the same problems and illness's
Hello jeanfk. No ,it shouldn't and the rash is most very probably a adverse side effect that you're having from taking the Ambien. I'd notify your doctor as soon as you can and see what he suggests. I don't know how long you've been on it, and what your dose is. Hope you feel better soon.
