while i was prescribed them, i wouldn't go to sleep, not intentionally. But i would see all kinds of crazy things happen that weren't really happening. Also, my brother overdosed on them. He ended up in the hospital. It is not an "ideal" party drug.

This reply is really intended for all "3" posts above me. I am a 46 year old woman. I am fortunate that I am still very young looking, and "with the program" if you know what I mean. Due to stresses of life, I am on Ambien to help me sleep at night. I agree, the few moments before your ready to sleep, the medicine gives off a certain feeling, and elation type feeling.......but the negative to this that I've learned the hard way.....if you don't go right to sleep, walking under the influence will pretty much be considered a "black out" experience and you don't know if you could possibly hurt you/a loved one/innocent people - because it is no different then drinking and driving, etc. It's a sedative and is just as destructive. In addition, your tolerance level is something to worry about. Also, if you don't lay down right after taking them, they do tend to wear off faster because the idea is to lay still and let it work into your system to help your mind relax and you fall asleep. This drug is a Narcotic and should be respected as one. I wish you ladies the best. Believe me dear, it's not worth it......unless you are using it for the right reasons.
no its non-narcotic

Ambien is the worst. I didn't take it for recreational purposes (nor would I want to) any dose would make me feel completely ill to my stomach, basically make me pass out, and then wake up wanting to throw up. This is very dangerous as you could throw up and suffocate while sleeping. Before passing out it makes me do retarded things. It's not a good high feeling, but a crazy, unpleasant, sick-to-the-stomach feeling. I don't recommend it for anything. After 2 times, I threw out the prescription.

If its anything like flunatrazepam (rohypnol.) Then yes it would make u feel f***ing wonderful :)
Rohypnol has been takin off the market here in australia and only available as a generic called hypnodorm also the mg has been cut in half to 1mg and changed from white soluble tasteless pills to green coated blue inside football shaped. I dont know are they anything like flunatrazepam? And yer btw sleeping pills are not narcotics! Morphine,oxycodone, heroin are narcotics.:)

Thanks to you jerks that abuse Ambien it will become harder for those who really need the drug to get it. Look at what is happening with pain medications. Because of morons abusing opiates legitimate patients have a hard time getting the meds they need. DEA thugs are a factor too.

Ambien, a very popular C-IV benzodiazepine- like drug is unlike others as taking many will not cause a traditional "OD". The safety profile is good. Combining other CNS depressants may cause periods of sleepwalking, as well as little or no remembrance of past occurrences.

I'm 15, and my mom gives me ambien sometimes to help me sleep. If I just lie down after I take it, it works fine and I just fall asleep. The thing is, one time I went to the bathroom after taking it. It was like I was drunk. The floor was moving and everything. I was lying on my bed, and it was like my blanket had waves in it.. I felt so good haha.
I admit, I took it and purposely fought sleep a couple times after just to get that effect again. I only ever take one, and I don't take it very often, only once a month or so. I've never had any bad side effects, and it's fun and seems pretty safe, but I do find it weird that a drug that is so easy to abuse is used as a legal sleep aid! I mean this stuff is stronger than marijuana, and that's illegal!
