I don’t take a single, regular prescription medication. I do need some antibiotics now and then for bronchitis, but don’t have anything I need to take every day.
If I do start to take one, I’m leaning toward Ambien CR. I actually sleep pretty well, but the extra sleep would just be a bonus on top of these possible side effects…
Sleepwalking, and eating or driving while not fully awake, with amnesia for the event, as well as behaviors such as being more outgoing or aggressive than normal, confusion, agitation, and hallucinations have been reported.
How fun would it be for my kids if I sleepwalked? Sleepate? Or sleepdrove? I’m all about amnesia (I’ve seen it many times in soaps),and LOVE the idea of hallucinations.
I would think my program director, Jason Barrett, would enjoy the prospect of me being more outgoing or agressive than normal.
More side effects include swelling of your tongue or throat or shortness of breath or more severe results.
I can live with those risks for a few hallucinations, I guess. Are there better side effects in any prescription anywhere?
