    "Oh my Gawd"..I couldn't believe Robin yesterday REVEALING another secret....about her illness..every once in awhile if you LISTEN closely you hear Robin drop a few revealing comments about being sick....surrounded by alot of "people" taking care of her etc...

    She was talking about drugs when that FAKE druggie caller called in and Howard did another "Ben Stern" bit :rolleye: ...he said Howard was like a "father" to him. He was the Heroin addict who called in ....(the ringer caller who was probably an intern)

    So Robin admitted she needs to take MEDS to sleep....due to her illness...the Dr's prescribed Ambien..and she said she FORGETS TO TAKE HER MEDS....(like most elderly people in dementia do) :eek:
    She said she COULDN"T take the Ambien because of the side effects being groggy for work....WORK??? WHEN does she work?

    anyway....PLEASE Robin do not TAKE AMBIEN...or the generic brand that is even WORSE....you can have HORRIBLE vivid hallucinations....and wake up
    crazier than u already are! The movie Awakenings was based on the side effects from this dangerous drug...the generic brand too...after u crash into a 4 hour sleep u wake up CRAZY or ALERT....
    I think Robin would wake up crazy :eek:

    My poor Mom was given Ambien....(she was in her 80's) she experienced awful side effects ...hallucinating and screaming at night when it wore off. It was such awful knowing this and FINALLY when I had the legal rights I was able to stop the NH from giving her these horrible drugs! Finally they gave her MELATONIN...and she slept fine with NO SIDE EFFECTS!

    With Robin's family history (Alz.) I would tell her NOT to take this drug and her Dr. is a JERK for giving it to her.

    IF u can't sleep Robin....take a natural sleep aid....Melatonin..u can get over the counter or at your Health Food Store! It puts u to sleep like Tylenol PM and SAFELY with no side effects...it's all natural.
    So if you're here reading our posts and threads...TimS.. or Gary or SOMEONE who cares about Robin....
    PLEASE advise her to take Melatonin....NOT Ambien....

    ...HOward takes Ambien and look how crazy he's getting! And he's also
    having Short Term Memory Loss....like Robin in Dementia!

    That's my advice to Robin today!!
    I hope she takes it....

    peace & love

    We reallly need one thread per day to put all of BenBas' profound observations in.

    The hoochie bin seems like the right place for them to go.

    I take Ambien on occasion and it doesn't have that affect on me. Actually, God Bless Ambien. When I can't sleep I take it and I can get up in the morning and make it to work. It makes my husband a bit wacky but it affects everyone differently. Melatonin works for me once in a while, but if I am very stressed and can't sleep I'll take one. Is it wise to take it daily? Probably not, unless you are going through a crisis (i.e. cancer) and have to take it daily on a short-term basis and under a doctor's supervision. Ambien is probably more benign than ayahuasca.

    Melatonin works if you take it about an hour before you go to sleep and you are reasonably tired. However, if you are really anxious or stressed, melatonin will just give you a hangover in the morning.

    Can't you send her an email? She might not be able to access the web while under house arrest.

    I said this 2 days ago.
    This chick must be on some serious meds. I used to think she was a good poster on SFN but now I fear she is bat shit crazy but possibly functional.

    Made me dream like a motherfucker which is good in one way because I was in deep sleep, but it drove my blood pressure up a bit.

    For me it just makes me really tired, but one time my husband took it and before he went to bed he told me that he was seeing marshmallow clouds in the corner of the bedroom. I told him to shut up and go to sleep and he slept like a baby and woke up fresh as a daisy the next morning. It really helps him because he is a fireman and works 24-hour shifts and his sleep is completely off.

    I usually work 28 days on, 28 days off on a six hour on six hour off shift. My sleep cycle has flat tires , no frame and the handle bars are broke. The Melatonin seemed to help get back to normal.

    So you have a fucked up sleep schedule like my husband. There's no way around it. Anyway, it's good that the melatonin worked for you. Obviously it's preferable to Ambien. I have thought about trying this one natural sleep aid that is a combination of melatonin, valerian root and L tryptophan.

    I tried Melatonin a few times and every time I get the worst sleep ever. I usually wake up several times a night but when I take Melatonin its like double that.

    I sometimes take half an ambien. Usually works pretty well without the side effects.
