... episodes of amnesia 3-4 over the past three month period. The episodes occur prior to taking his dose of ambien, occur usually about 4-5 hours before he takes his dose, and he denies doing anything different or taking any other meds differently than normal. My client found out about the amnestic episode from a text message between he and his son on one occasion. Another time, he was cooking, ate, but woke up in the morning not knowing where the dishes were and what he ate for dinner. Has anyone ever heard about something like this?
I have hd similar issues but I am not on Ambien of any form. I was told by two professionals that it could be anxiety related it does happen and since my anxiety has been better controlled it has not happened hardly as much and as my anxiety gets better it happens less and less. Hope this helps some, good luck and hope it is something this simple for your client. marjorie zych
I, too, have heard of situations like this, but not BEFORE taking Ambien. There have been cases where people experience the things that you mentioned, but only after taking Ambien: things like sleep eating, sleep driving, and even sleeping while talking on the phone. Hope this helps.
I have taken 10mg of ambien for years. One night my boyfriend and I bought 2 pts of different flavors of ben and jerrys ice cream. ..i never had it befor and was excited to try it. The next night my boyfriend gets his pint of the leftover ice cream. ..mine was gone. I was furious. I swore up and down I never ate it. I accused his kids! I thought that for years until an incident with half a box of lucky charms. My friend emailed me a very strange conversation he and I had. It was off the wall strange. so yes I believe these things can happen. My problems were after i took the ambien and befor. My boy friend took me to home depot. was never there. so one day i said lets go to home depot! Ive never been there... It feels very weird to find these things you have done but dont remember.
