That's Ned on the horizon:

Yeah, I have the same issue with Ambien: I have woken up in the middle of the night and called people and had full conversations, and have no memory of it at all. That only happened once, and it was the second time I took it. I do enough stupid stuff on my own, and have enough trouble remembering numbers or addresses or to pay bills, etc....I don;t need any help getting worse about it.

There is a sizeable population of users who show this tendency, among others that are far worse, and it it totally unpredictable. Google the term "Ambien Zombie" ...

The hangover is not worth the "sleep," I get, if you could call it that. I don't think it would be a good time for Ned to be trying it out either, but to each his own...

Not the way I would test it, either. Quote from the RPA camp this morning said Ned had had his best night's sleep in 2wks, though (don't know if he took it, or not).

In any case,

Coma, three pisses while waiting. That's race horse behavior.

Wonder if Ned took that Ambien? Like many have said, use with caution if you aren't sure how it affects you.

Time to start packing the truck and wake the other lads up.

We're dropping Jonah and Niles at the airport this morning, Bill may already be home....

Re Jonahs retirement, it was planned long before coming down here.....

Freaking hot here, 49 celcius yesterday I'm told......CRAZY heat.

Well, time to get moving.

Go Ned Go!!!!!!

I'm a doc and have some experience with this. Personally, I tried it during the Colo 500 a few years ago when my roommate snored so much I couldn't sleep. I had dizzyness and even some vertigo and couldn't keep my bike on the trail the next day. Never again.

There's 2 kinds of Ambien as well. One is more time released for staying asleep issues, the other knocks you out.

I hated the rebound, ie, my insomnia was even worse when I didn't use it, for about three nights.

Never again.

If I can't sleep, I just have a bourbon shot or two...these Ambien stories just confirmed that I'll never touch that shit.

GO NED!

My wife had some while I was deployed and sleep ordered a bunch of stuff off of home shopping with zero recollection. I sleep like a log anyways, Id sleep for a week straight if I took that stuff.
