Wasn't this one of the TV warnings for the drug Ambien? Oh, here it is "Ambien sleeping pills linked to bizarre sleep walking behavior, including unconscious driving of vehicles and wild hallucinations" And odd emails too I guess

Actually, this has happened to me. I've sent emails and left voice mails. I even got treated to reading and listening to the messages I left. I even called my boss. I was sick at the time and was taking a few medications which included Ambien. Thank God my boss and friends understood what was happening in my life at the time. You could tell I was sedated by my voice, and my emails had a lot of misspelled words and grammatical errors. It was embarrassing. However, the scariest part was a time where I accidentally overdosed on my medication. It was a Heath Ledger type of scenario. I have no memo... [More]

Why you ask, and he shows you an e mail you sent telling him/her all the worst things you have ever thought of him/her! But if it's a much needed job Do you think there will be a landslide of people in court useing the "but i was asleep your honour" and didn't know what i was doing cases to fight charges ranging from harrasment to whatever now? Something tells me Wow that is crazy! Yeah I remember hearing about that drug causing people to do things when they are really alseep, and peopl... [More]
