The Ambien Monster

Ambien is a necessary evil.  I can’t fall sleep or stay asleep without taking it.  My mind races and I often wake with nightmares.  I have tried many other sleep agents without success.

Ambien is unlike any other sedative.  When it first came out it was a substitute for benzos because it was thought to be less addictive….haha!  Obviously that FDA has changed their tune on this.  Not only is it habit-forming but many people have been found sleep eating, sleep walking or sleep driving after taking one of those fabulous evil pills.

I have woken up with food wrappers in my bed from a feast I have no recollection of. Packages arriving at my front door from Amazon that I don’t remember ordering.  Then there are the texts to friends that make no sense.  Obviously this has caused some extra life stressors… My waistline has increased, my bank account decreased, my boyfriend is irritated and my friends are getting weird texts in the middle of the night.  I will say my friends do love when the “Ambien Monster” shows its ugly face because they get to laugh about it for weeks.

To give an example I’ve attached the text messages I’ve sent…I mean texts that the “Ambien Monster” has sent.  My friends love combining the texts and sending them to me.

Though I’ve had plenty of humor curiosity of Ambien I do feel the need to stress that it has the potential to be a dangerous drug.  It shouldn’t be used recreationally and only prescribed by a physician.  I would love not to take it.  Unfortunately it is a necessary evil.  If I go to many nights without sleep I spiral into the borderline/major depressive hole… And that hole can be deadlier than any Ambien monster.
