I guess the best way to describe the feeling is "high". You feel very strange, irritated (constant wiggling my foot), yet oddly focused. Your imagination will run wild - daydreams are common.

Additional Thoughts
If you take Ambien, you don't just "pass out" immediately. It doesn't even make you that tired. It just makes it so that if you

Additional Thoughts
I started taking ambien in college so I could get a full night sleep when I really needed to. I soon discovered that if you take it and stay awake for awhile it works like a hypnotic so you can get things done without thinking about. I don't like working out to much so I take an ambien and you can do hundreds of sit-ups or curls without even realizing it.

Reason: I can't fall asleep my mind won't slow down long enough. Date: 23 September 2008
Side Effects
I have taken ambien for 6 months and I never know if it will kick in quickly or take two hours. So I have taken it and done strange things like cut my hair off and had no idea I was until my husband seen me and I told him these people were fixing my hair. The next day I had to have my hair pretty much shaved off because I had ruined it. This was the worst experience with ambien. But I've tried so many others that can't keep me asleep or make me so sleepy the next day.

Additional Thoughts
I suffer from depression, chronic fatigue and my specialist thinks I have Fibromialga. I'm going to a neuorologist to get some answers. Right now I take ambien at night and dexidrine to wake up and stay wake thru the day. Doesn't make sense to me.
