    My first night on this med resulted in me being semi aware with extreme visual hallucinations, including the curtains moving and sprouting faces that laughed, bowls from popcorn on the dresser becoming 2 bowl men fighting, a lamp becoming a dancing lady, and my wife having 4 eyes among other things, needless to say she was highly displeased and told me never to take it again(she's a nurse).

    I find myself hearing voices and seeing "littel" people. i also find myself waking up with things by me and my family members asking me if I remember anything about last nite. The pill works, I fall asleep fast. When i wake up the next morning I go outside to smoke I caqn hear neverthing around but what is around me.

    I awoke to disturbing feelings mentally. I felt confused, "unreal", could not concentrate, and began to feel jittery. I had to call my doctor and stop the medication. The side effects remained far longer than I would have thought. I would never recommend this medication after these disconcerting side effects. They frightened me badly.

    I go between Lunesta and Ambien depending of when I go to bed and when I need to get up. I sleep less with Ambien and it takes effect on me within 14 minutes. I use it when I go to bed later and need to get up rested earlier (4-5 hours). Lunesta takes effect within about 26 minutes. I use this when I go to bed earlier and can sleep later (5-6 hours). Love them both for a good night's rest ... Show Full Comment

    I've taken Ambien for 1 1/2 years. Can not sleep without it, but it takes me 2-3 hours to fall asleep with it. I have odd dreams. I wake up in the morning to find that I have called people (my mother in law called me once to check on me because she didn't think I would remember talking to her) emailed people and shopped online. I have no idea I'm doing these things until I check my ... Show Full Comment
