This action on the part of the FDA is way overdue (and probably too mild) and a couple weeks too late for a friend who ended up in jail after taking an Ambien. He received no warnings at all about the possible effects of this drug. Certainly no one who lives alone should be prescribed this medication. He has absolutely no memory of driving or the other things he did after taking this medicine. I suggest that anyone who has bad experiences with Ambien or knows anyone who has should go to the FDA website and post comments so they realize how wrong they are when they describe these side effects as "rare". Let them know how under reported these incidents are.

I'm sorry, but alleging that these side effects are more than rare occurrences is a baseless claim. I and a great many others utilize this drug with great results to combat a condition which would otherwise leave them completely unable to function on a daily basis. While I whole-heartedly agree there should be warnings for these and any other possible side effects, exaggerating there prevalence simply results in over regulation of drugs that ultimately help people.

I would hope that individuals and especially law makers realize this.

I think that people need to get back to a place when we where less dependent on drugs for sleep and a whole list of other so called ailments. If a person learns balance and how to take better care of there bodies by what they eat,stress, and other bad habbits we would not need so many drugs. I am tired of hearing people say they would not know what to do if they did not have there perscription cure all, not to mention that some of the drugs out there out weight the bennifit of taking them because of there side affects. But I know that most people know best and will not listen to what I have to say, so whats the point!!!

About half the kids in school take a variety of drugs just so they can sit still long enough to learn, they are just getting a fogy recollection and not a clear mind.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from XTOP24 .COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

I just today received my 4th from Xtop24 .COM , I think, order from them, and as always, am very happy with them! I'm a real person too, lol, I don't work for them, but I found this forum when looking for other people who take this drug. EMS shipping method, I get it in less than a week, and I swear the couple times I actually called to place an order versus online ordering, i got it quicker,like 2-3 days later. The tracking number and estimated delivery date has been 100% accurate so far, and customer service has been great. I even got a coupon for 20 bucks off of my last order through email, which I thought was an excellent thing to do for their customers! I'll continue using them as long as I have to!
