I've been on Ambien for almost two months now. Started on 5mg and went up to 10mg. Nothing bad happened on 5 just sleep. On 10 I started having illusions and a 'high' 5 minutes affter taking it. I take it and try to fall asleep but that doesn't always work. Normally when it kicks in if I don't fall asleep I get really happy, everything is funny, nothing I type makes sense, and I get illusions but they're not scary to me but hilarious I literally sit there and laugh at them. One night I took it and was laying down in bed and I looked up at my wall and these blue strings were flying towards me and I reached out and grabbed them and they disappeared. So I sat up and took a look at my ceiling fan and the light bulbs were 'dancing' or moving and then the blades got bigger and it began to melt. This freaked me out and I went into panic mode and it took me an hour to fall asleep. Since then I cut them in half. The fan thing happened again. Now I'm just afraid to take it and go to sleep. I've tried not taking it and I wake up in panic attacks. I told my therapist and she told me to tell my psychiatrist, I see her on the 28th.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
