Ambient Mood
Zolpidem (Ambien)
Citation:   Indigo. "Ambient Mood: An Experience with Zolpidem (Ambien) (exp4717)". Mar 3, 2001.

10 mg oral Pharms - Zolpidem (pill / tablet)
For quite a while, I've been trying to get my psychiatrist to prescribe me pharms that lend the user a more interesting experience (or have some street value). Aderall, Ritalin, Dexadrine - all of that sends me into psychosis. I'm bipolar, so I have to stay away from a lot of drugs, much to my chagrin. At least I got some fun in before I had to quit.

Anyway, I had pretty much given up on the effort. I couldn't even get any Xanax or Klonopin. But I brought up that I had been having trouble sleeping, and my doctor prescribed Ambien for me. Ambien is not a benzodiazapine like Xanax or Klonopin but it acts on the receptors in your brain in almost exactly the same way. The first couple of times I used it, I wasn't aware of what I could do to manipulate the medication so as to have a more enjoyable time. But quickly, I learned that if I stayed up through the pleasant sleepy feeling that the drug gave me, things got a bit more interesting. My sense of depth perception was really fucked up; really, my entire vision was - things were moving around and pulsating, etc. I was impressed. Ambien gave a high unlike any other I had previously - it was simultaneously drunken and clear-headed. Overall it was a really pleasant experience, and I have since continued to use it.
