Ambien = aphrodisiac?

   My husband and I used to think this was just us, but I have since found many articles and online sites talking all about this side effect of the common prescription sleep aid Ambien. We found that when we both took it we would have crazy kinky wild sex...and sometimes we'd barely remember most of it! There were mornings I'd wake up all sore and have these vague images of something that MAY have happened, but it was more like a dream. I had to ask my husband if we really did those things!!! It became a joke in our house, we nudge each other and say "hey, wanna go "sleep"?!?" It's actually been a lot of fun for us because it takes away inhibitions even more than alcohol does and we really go nuts on each other. We had it prescribed to us to help us sleep but it ended up having a whole other bonus! Has anyone else used this sleep aid and had this affect?

I guess during this whole Tiger Woods fiasco someone mentioned that he liked to take ambien because of the effects it had in regards to sex. I wonder?

oh that's right! My husband did mention that he saw something about Tiger and ambien....it really is nuts! Everytime I see an Ambien commercial it makes me giggle, they would probably sell more of it if they made this side effect known!

lol Niecy, it really does help with getting a great night's sleep too!


We just weren't prepared for the other side effect, it would have been nice if we'd been warned. Seriously, the next day we'd be like "I can not believe the things I said last night!" or "Wow, I can't believe you really did that!!" LOL


I've had insomnia for years, I never knew I'd get such a bonus from it ;)

I take ambien every night!  and yes sometimes I don't remember things, but it surely does not get me in the mood....I wish it did!


When we DTD after i take ambien it does feel like a dream somewhat!  I always ask myself did we, how, when??? Seriously I can not remember sometimes....but I really like remembering our sessions, so we try to DTD before I take my ambien or right after I take it!  It takes 2 hrs before I get sleepy after taking it!  yes serious sleep problems

we find that if we take ambien more than one night in a row it quickly becomes less effective because we build up a tolerance so easily. If you take a few nights off of it you'll probably not have to wait 2 hours. How many milligrams are you on?


yeah, we do wish that it didn't hurt your memory of the event because it's a real blast! LOL

Well, no Ambien involved, but my DH has "sexsomnia" otherwise known as a form of "Night Terrors" where he has sex in his sleep and doesn't remember a thing after woken up. Crazy but true...

Ambien.. is an amnesiac type of sleeping pill.. you can do many things you are not even aware of. Some safe and fun.. and some terribly unsafe. And you won't remember all or potentially any of it. If you live thru it!! I have taken a sleeper for 16 yrs, I was switched once to ambien.. never again.

i never heard of this side effect of ambien, i've never taken it but lallys i know what your talking about with doing things you arent aware of.  Fi's mom used to take it and one night she got up when FI was walking me out and told me we "had to practice our two step for the picnic and it had to be perfect" hahah (we werent going to a picnic? lol) she proceeded to two-step with me in the hallway. she was also known to eat while sleepwalking, so i suppose it could be dangerous if she started to cook things in her sleep. LOL but the dancing is def one of my funniest memories of her!!!


 


edit-- i realize thats so off topic but i had to share my funny story!

Mrs. Mac.. my dtr got locked out of the house,, she was trying to wake me up.. my bedroom sits right over the front porch. she had a broom stick and was pounding the roof of the porch to wake me up. I guess I finally woke up.. walked downstairs had a complete discussion with her, yelled at her for not having her key...(well that would be usual) then went to get a drink of water, walked back upstairs and didn't remember a thing! My son in law, he saw green men dancing  and he said it was sooo fun.. but no way.. after I read side effects of that drug.. no way..
