Dear Elizabeth,

You're the first person ever to take an interest in my particular, peculiar Periodic Limb Movement Disorder and its extreme exaggeration on Ambien.

Once or twice, I made the mistake of taking an Ambien while I was still on the computer in the evening, thinking I was going to go to bed in a couple of minutes. I got so out of it that I didn't know what I was doing (fortunately, bidding on eBay is fairly difficult when you're seeing TWO monitors in front of you and your fingers are no longer working properly). My wife apparently came down to get me, and she says I fell on my face going up the stairs on my way to bed, and then had a completely incoherent conversation with her -- she never could ascertain the topic.

My EXPERIENCE is that I lie down and sleep utterly peacefully and quietly on Ambien, as though I was so comfortable that I never even moved during the night. I'm usually a little tired the next afternoon, but otherwise it seems nearly perfect.

Wouldn't it freak them out in a sleep lab for me to spend the night on Ambien, wires and limbs flying everywhere? I wonder what my poor brain is doing while my consciousness is off in that peaceful, deep sleep?

Thank you for your interest.
