DOSE:
20 mg oral Pharms - Zolpidem (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 130 lb


My dad was prescribed Ambien for inability to sleep due to anxiety; the doctor told him to take one whenever he needed it. As with all mind-altering prescriptions drugs in my house, the Ambien made it's way around for everyone's usage.

I'd used an Ambien on occasion to get to sleep on nights I was feeling worrisome or wound up, but I never used it recreationally until today. I took the two tic-tac sized pills during my lunch period at school, around 1:00 pm. It started kicking in about 20 minutes later.

I felt a little dizzy, and everything else is a little hard to describe. We're doing painting in my art class so they asked for people to pose, and I volunteered since I didn't think I could paint at that very moment. Thing is, I kept forgetting what I was doing and gazing off. I attribute that to the Ambien. It kind of pissed off my classmates, and I was kind of sleepy. Everything was seemingly relaxing. The world had a wavy, hazey look to it. I could have easily been lulled into sleep but I didn't really feel too tired. Then when the period was over and there were kids everywhere, I felt excited and anxious. A friend saw me and I started talking about how I was seeing double. It was crazy!

I'd like to try this drug at a higher dosage. The biggest problem with it is that it seems like my mind is a little chaotic when I take it, like it floods with things too quickly and I can't remember any of them. It's like a mix of being very, very stoned and drinking a little bit.

Peace! Be safe :)
