albeit, very, very unnerving..
My family Dr. put me on Ambien, I've had a lot of sleep issues, it runs in the family I guess... I have problems getting and staying asleep, in the past I really didn't want to take anything, because I was afraid that I wouldn't hear the kiddos when they woke through the night.. but now that they sleep through the night with no problems, I finally asked my Dr. about Ambien, so he gave me a prescription, without telling me much about it.. sure, I had heard commercials and had known others who have taken it, but I had never taken it before..
fast forward 1 week, to Sunday April 22nd... I always fill 3 sippies at night, so that they are ready for me the next morning... When the boys awoke around 7 ish.. I went down to get their sippies, there was only 1 sippy in the fridge (Macy's).. so, I went back to bed, assured that Chad had already given them their sippies... and they would shortly be back asleep... After Chad got out of the shower, I asked him that time he gave the boys their sippies..
Chad: I didn't give them sippies !
me: yes you did! What time was it?
Chad: Stefanie, I didn't give them to them.
So, I immediately rushed downstairs, got two sippies ready and went into the boys room.. Their sippies were already in there, they had drank them and they were not cold. so they had been there for a while.. also, on the floor was a dirty diaper, that had been changed...
our only conclusion is that I was sleepwalking! I have absolutely NO memory of this at all...
very, very, very scary.. needless to say.. I will not be taking Ambien anymore... I wonder what else I did that night?
Anyone else take Ambien and sleepwalk??
