... of Ambien. In the middle of the night, she is running around the halls, fighting with nurses, waking patients, calling people on the phone. These symptoms persisted and gradually decreased over a period of a week. There are still some minor issues. Is it normal for these effects to hang on this long?
It seems ambien causes a lot of problems like this!! Many people have posted some strange things they've done while asleep on ambien. One woman went shopping and purchased hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise and had no recollection of ever driving, nor of the shopping event and she did not remember if she was dressed during this episode!
I've never heard of it lasting this long though!!
May I ask what the minor issues now are? If ye don't mind answering that?
Best wishes to you and your wife!!
I'm sorry to hear the distress you and your wife are going through,I like Sweet said have heard of people doing strange things and not remembering after taking this med..
Will the docs not change her medication to something else?I understand this must be frightening for you both.
My prayers and wishes are with you both
