I have trouble with insomnia so my doc gave me a scrip for generic ambien/lunesta/equivalent. It works great and generally leaves me with no "hangover" the next day. However, I have been using it more and more frequently and now it's generally every night. It's not a physical dependence, but I think more of a psychological one. I've been thinking I should really wean myself.
Well, last night, I came home after traveling all week. I was exhausted, but still took my pill. When I take these, it's like someone flips a switch. I usually have no memory of falling asleep at all (you know, how you usually remember lying in bed for a little while and thinking of "xxx" before drifting off). This stuff hits you hard, in a good way.
Well, I got up the this morning and went to the bathroom and (sorry, TMI) felt like I usually do after nookie the night before. But I was certain we hadn't...I read in bed for a little while, with Maddow on in the background (DP was watching) and then took my pill and, as usual, CRASH.
So, I ask DP "Did we have sex last night?". Yep, we sure did. And not only that, but apparently I initiated it.
Now, I remember thinking about it during the day yesterday - thinking I had been missing him, and might want a little summin'-summin', but wondering if I would be too tired or whatever. So I guess it had been on my mind. But, I seriously have absolutely no memory of this last night. It's not even like being drunk and things are fuzzy - I have zero recollection of it.
This has really freaked me out. I mean, I guess I"m glad it wasn't some random dude in a bar (it was my husband after all), but I don't like the idea that I could do something that...well, intimate and participatory, and not be able to even remember it.
I remember reading this on the warning label for this pill and kind of dismissing it, but having now been there myself all I can say in my best Joey Tribbiani voice is "whoa!".
Anyone else ever had this happen?
