I drank some water and it went away. I did not sleep at all, after 2 hours I took an ambien. I had taken this pill one hour before bed.

It took many years for my doctor to talk me into taking it. I could not understand why I would take medication for depression if I was not depressed. I educated myself and realized this medication treats many things and taking it does not m ... Show Full Comment
