Two Ambien and a beer chaser ... the only way to travel economy class on international flights. Just make sure there are no scheduled layovers. Have
you ever felt a psychotic episode coming on when the kids turn the back of a plane into a playground (read that as zoo)? I credit Ambien with
prevention rather than cause.

I do use Ambien, and have for three years. I have had insomnia off and on my whole life, and nothing else works. But I'll tell you what, most of the
time I cut those buggers in half, and I use as a last resort. My prescription expires well before I am half way into it. I suppose everybody is
different, but I think it is a chancy thing to use it with alcohol, double dosed, and in an active and closed environment. I hope you are joking, I
For everybody else, my advice is don't take it with alcohol, and don't ever take more than the prescribed dose. I have never done this, but every.
single. story I have read or heard of with people going bat-guano-zombie-bonkers they have done one, or both of those things.
I will say that there have been a few times when I saw things (which I remember), and a handful of times when my husband and daughter have told me the
things that I have said that I have absolutely no recollection of. I don't get angry, but I do regress into a childlike state. No rage, (or cooking,
or eating), just silly. Go figure. The only time things have gotten weird or my memory was blanked on what I had said was when I took a whole
So for my Ambien confession: The first time things got weird,I had taken the pill and my husband was pacing in front of me and talking about
something serious (no argument, he just walks when he is thinking) and all of a sudden I start giggling. I remember this. He has this big North Face
parka that he had hung on the back of the chair, and when he walked by the parka got off the chair and started stalking him. It would jump on him and
then keep pacing behind, and he would turn and it would stay at his back so he couldn't see it. I watched it for a while, and then when the bad
kung-fu movie parallels got to be too much I started laughing. I was laughing too hard to tell him what I saw for a little bit.
That was when I started cutting them in half. I'm glad that my family is more entertained than freaked out, and I hope that it is a testament to my
true nature that hilarity ensues instead of violence; but this stuff is serious. Use with caution.
