Comment:
I started taking ambien when it first came out and now I totally regret it. It is addictive and I recommend that anybody even thinking of taking ambien should try every other possible choice first. It is a really scary drug because you'll end up doing things in the middle of the night like cook, look for something you misplaced, make phone calls and a lot more and in the morning it will all be ...
