rowen Posted March 30, 2009 Share Posted March 30, 2009 I recently started taking Ambien. I'm having some issues with parasomnias. I think. It's bizarre, because I sort of remember bits of pieces of things happening but it all feels sort of dream-like. I have a similar issue post-night terror (I kind of but not really remember feeling frightened and being awake at night, but I couldn't tell you if my waking up actually happened), so I'm thinking this might be parasomnia based on previous parasomnia experiences. Does it..go away? This is the first medication my doc has prescribed for sleep that has been helpful. However, the doing-things-in-my-sleep-thing is kind of freaking me out. Plus it gives me a loss of control feeling. And I like control, dammit (topic for another thread...or for my shrink appointment this Friday). Does this side effect warrant a call to my provider? I just find this side effect so bizarre... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
