Montana Marriott asked me if I know any pig puns. I do, but they are all so boaring.

Unknown said...

No but I know people who do.. never caused them to say racist things though

sandybrook said...

If I need something like that I'll take melatonin or Advil PM.

gadfly said...

All the time. Love it.

parissucksliterally said...

I took TWO on a plane, and still couldn't sleep. Fuck that crap.

Lyla said...

Depends. Who's asking?

Desi Derium said...

My ex-gf gave me some back in the day if I couldn’t sleep. Didn’t really seem to do much for me.
But I have a friend who takes it, and she stopped because one morning she woke up with her keys in bed with her she her car parked in a different place on the street. To this day, she has no idea what she did or where she went. That freaked her out and she stopped taking it.

Brayson87 said...

F*ck no, everyone I've known that has taken it said it made them crazy. Benadryl is your Huckleberry if you can't get to sleep.

Jennifer said...

Yes, and I have woken up the next day to find weird things I ate,(can of cranberry sauce) questionable things I texted (but never racist things).

just sayin' said...

Years ago, til I started doing weird things during the night. Cut my hair off up to my ears, painted my bedroom dripping paint all over my bed, ate frozen green beans (which I don't even like cooked) and tried to get my kids up to clean the litterbox. It's very unpleasant to get off of.

Took it once. Woke up and I was the Grand Dragon of the KKK.

Newbomb said...

I take intermezzo which is a form of ambien. It is quick working and only lasts 4 hours. Its perfect for people who wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep. No racist side effects either.

Casper said...

I have a friend who is addicted to Ambien. I have known him for 30 years, very good man. But he occasionally sends NASTY NASTY sexual emails in the middle of the night that he has no memory of.

Spiffypaws said...

nah, 2 benadryl work for me

MontanaMarriott said...

LMAO, Uhm I guess I should be honored to be mentioned @Former....

Sara, Making It Work said...

Lol no.

Natasha21 said...

Indeed I did. I was High as fuck and went straight away to buy a Ticky Tourch ...

Lyla said...

I know of someone who took an entire cake out of the freezer and painted his wall with it. All while asleep. The pics from the next morning were amazing. Did I mention it was chocolate cake?!

hothotheat said...

No, I live my life sleepy. When bedtime comes, I'm asleep in 5 minutes.

Dena said...

No. I was taking Magnesium which gave me some really cool, epic dreams for awhile, but when some of the dreams turned bad I stopped. The past few nights I've taken Melatonin and it gets me to sleep, but doesn't keep me asleep. Nighttime cold medicine works the best, but I still prefer wine (^:

This was literally Roseanne's excuse for her tweet.

Roseanne returns to Twitter after ABC cancels show; blames Ambien for racist tweet

riffer73 said...

Never heard of it until she tweeted it.

Why can't people just drink themselves unconscious anymore? :)

Shaddup Mimsey said...

When I feel like being racist, I'll take one, otherwise, nah.

Makeupbylizz said...

Yes, and I woke up to find out I had kicked my at the time fiance out. Still no recollection. That stuff scares me. But twitter wasn’t around then, myspace more likely.

David Howes said...

No.

I'm too afraid it will make me a racist!

No?

No one?

Sigh!

Okay, bad joke.

In my business, racist RE broker/agents don't last.

Anonymous said...

Yes. Woke up to see I'd messaged paragraphs of utter gibberish with only one or two words included that I could actually make out to a few people, including my mother. Weird shit.

Jackie a said...

I took it until i realized all the crazy shit i did while on it. I would sleep eat and consume 2000-3000 calories. I would call random phone numbers between 2am-4am. Go on walks, etc. Now i just take benadryl.

Muchluv13 said...

The worst thing I would do on Ambien is shop. Online shopping... Free Prime Shipping became my friend on Ambien.

Disparaging Remark said...

Yeah, but it doesn't make me racist. It makes me eat popcorn. I've woken up to more than one popcorn party in my bed that I had no recollection of.

rocky619ca said...

Yes. I loved it because I could sleep uninterrupted and without nightmares.

PhyllisWhitweed said...

I have a sleep disorder so I have to take much stronger meds than that. But they tried me on it before they knew the problem. According to my ex I would sit straight up in bed with my eyes bugged out just staring at him. Then close my eyes and stiffly lie back down. He compared it to a bad movie vampire. Normally if I dream I'm doing something my sleeping body will try to comply, but ambien added super power to it. I was climbing a ladder in my bed or running away from things. Like a sleeping dog chasing cars. Woke up exhausted. But I had enough sense to stop taking it.

Sweet Jesus on a bicycle said...

I took it once. I woke up the next morning naked, all the lights on, front and back door wide open and the dogs locked in the guest bedroom. Never ever again. Restoril is a much better choice for me.

Geeljire said...

Hell no

Thia said...

I actually talked about a friend taking ambien on a different thread here, a few weeks ago. I had a friend who took it, woke up in the middle of the night sitting on the curb at a gas station with no idea how he got there.

I haven't taken ambien or anything like it. The side effects that I've heard about are terrifying.

T. W. said...

2x

Slept like a baby.

Cuddlebutt said...

I think once in the hospital. I have a prescription but I'm too afraid.

HoneyRyder said...

These stories are funny & terrifying, which was my experience too. I ordered a lot of 100 used school desks on eBay from a dealer in Dallas and only figured it out when he contacted me the next day to arrange shipping. Put another quarter in the therapy jar!

Sal T said...

Yes, but thankfully never had any weird reactions like the ones above!

Scandi Sanskrit said...

No. “We don’t ban books in this country...”

The company just released a statement saying “Ambien’s side-effects do not include racism”. LOL.

That being said, I’d love to slip some of that stuff into people I’ve suspected are closet racists (based on elitist tweets/statements with racist undertones) just to see what comes out of their traps when they’re “relaxed”. 🎶

SororSalsa said...

I had a prescription but never took it. I roomed with a friend one weekend, and we had a full conversation one night. I found out the next morning that she'd taken Ambien and didn't remember a bit of it. Too scary for me.

Mango said...

I was staying with my brother once after he had shoulder surgery and he had popped an Ambien. He fell asleep sitting up on the couch and I tried to wake him so he could go to bed. I called his name a few times and he sat bolt upright, eyes wide open and said urgently, 'I wonder if Pi is still 3.14?"

M52799 said...

Can no-one consider that maybe Roseanne heard something like that joke before or even, came up with it herself, never used it, but then tweeted it in an Ambien haze. That shit will make you crazy. People do all kinds of crazy things they normally wouldn't do.

rosie riveter said...

The problem here,M52799, is that this is something she WOULD normally do. Also, blaming it on Ambien. That's something she would do.

So glad I read this thread to start my day tho! Hilarious!
Hahahahaha "bought 100 used school desks" made me lol

TerriB said...

I had a couple for emergencies and took one one night. My SO was leaving the next day for a trip of a week or so and when I woke up in the morning, I couldn't remember if we had "goodbye sex" or not. It was weird because I never really believed a lot of the stories I'd heard about this crap. I started fooling around with him and afterward started laughing and told him I couldn't remember what happened last night. He said yes, we had done it, but he wasn't going to complain about getting again. Never again!
