I got Ambien prescribed to me for sleep in the form of 10 mg tablets. I assumed it would just make me fall asleep but was I wrong. At first it was great, I'd just take two Ambien and I'd feel great and I loved it and that continued but I needed to take more to get the same effect I was used to and liked so much but I'd notice the more often I was taking Ambien and also increasing my dosage the more stupid I would act, the more people would notice I was on something, and the more memory loss I'd have. I will say and most likely do anything while under the influence of Ambien including riding a four wheeler multiple times and running over a tall yard pole, I'm lucky I didn't seriously get hurt.

On to my most recent experience and most awful, I went to a friends house where it was me and like seven other guys. Through out the night I had shared a joint and drank a cup of this drink called a Paint Can and had taken six Ambien, it kicks in but takes awhile so I always think its not and think I need to take more. I guess I really have no idea how messed up Ambien makes me act because in my mind I think I act fine but know when I sober up that I don't. Anyway, back to my most recent 'adventure', at this party I ended up selling five to a person who'd never taken them and ended up taking all five his first time and thankfully he did ok.

I also had bad sex outside in the wet grass with someone who was younger and frankly way too rough who I didn't even know at all which I never would have done if I hadn't been so messed up on Ambien, then the next morning my memory is so bad that I accuse this guy of stealing my phone, I call my provider and end reporting my phone stolen all in front of this guy and his friends and now I feel like a complete ass because my phone was later found under the couch where we had started out. Then I got home and everyone knew I was under the influence of something and at this moment I have my whole family is pissed at me and we've been fighting bad all day and the days just been terrible.I'm really not sure if I'll take it again, I don't need more trouble.
