So I take the medicine Zolpidem, generic Ambien, and I started only taking one a night but they didn't work at all so I called my doctor and we agreed I should take two. I have been taking two for the past month or so and everything has been fine. It doesn't work too great but it does get me sleepy. Plus, I love the little high it gives me but thats a different story. Anyway, my post is about something that happened the other night. I took my pills as usual but then I got really depressed. I have never been a person to do self-harm but on this night I started bitting my wrists. I still have red marks there now and the skin is very sore. After that little episode happened, I cut myself on my shoulder. I know this sounds ridiculous but I just need some advice. I stopped taking the medicine but I might start again because I haven't been sleeping. Just some more info: I know a common side-affect of Ambien is doing weird stuff that you don't remember but the weird thing is, I have never, ever, ever, had a side-affect of a medication and also that I remember almost everything even if it was a little blurry. I have never done anything like this before so I'm just worried. Now I have these scars on my shoulder and red marks on my wrists. Advice? :sparkle: -edit- I don't think this belongs in the substance abuse section because I'm not abusing it?
