Signs that Ambien is Making You Sleep-Eat

posted by Momo Fali on January 9, 2012

1. You wake up to find random plates and bowls on your nightstand.

2. Your daughter takes the candy from her Christmas stocking and hides it in her room.

3. Your husband asks, “Did you eat my Skittles?” Yes, I think I did.

4. Your husband asks, “If you only ate a banana, then why is the peanut butter on the counter?”

5. The bin of recycling is full of cereal boxes that you don’t remember emptying.

6. Your waistline disappears.

    I totally did this! I would take Ambien, go to bed and then get up a half an hour or 45 minutes later and eat. Cookies, like 6 Oreos, cheese and crackers, etc. and YES, my child’s candy! Once a whole bag of Twizzlers in one sitting! I was like a crazy zombie eater.

    I gave up Ambien in rehab last month (went for drinking, but this was a happy bonus). Don’t need it anymore!

    It’s pretty common, I hear. Also Ambien shopping! (online)

    My dad did this on Ambien. He kept waking up to dirty dishes and open cereal boxes…he thought someone was breaking into his home and eating his cereal every night. LOL

    Imma let you finish, but Momo Ambien tweets are the best Ambien side effects of all time.

    6B. You can no longer reach your toes to give yourself sleep-pedicures?

    ha ha ha… My mom takes Ambien and she wakes up to messages on her machine that say “next time you want to call me, wait to take your sleeping pill. No I don’t think this is a good time for us to drive up to Montana and find us some cowboys on a dude ranch to coddle…” 🙂

    Oh yes. My brother’s girlfriend Ambien Sleep-Eats. AND, she Ambien Sleep-Shops-Online.

    She received a package in the mail and couldn’t figure out who it was from until she got her credit-card bill in the mail the following month.
