[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]

At 16:30 took 2.5 mg for a easy lift up then I took the other 2.5 at 17:15. I began to feel a little warm and cozy which always nice at the beginning of a trip. While the low doses were kicking in I made some food to save for later. Around 18:00 hours I took 5 mg from the first pill that I split. These took a while to kick in, which is different from previous experience. At about 18:30 I took 10 mg and repeated 10 mg every 30 min until the dose of 60 mg was reached. Being a larger man I thought this dosage was alright to take.

While I didn't see any open eye visuals the closed eye visuals were excellent. I didn't have any profound realizations but was relaxed.

Zolpidem produced novel and enjoyable experiences when taken with many other drugs. This is too complex to discuss here though. I do think one should always verify that there are no dangerous interactions between drugs that one plans to take by consulting a qualified doctor.
