I like ambien more than many benzos. Makes you feel ultra relaxed and you perception and thinking pattern changes but I find that I can still pay attention if needed. One time I took 20mg and felt like I was on shrooms but it was a different feeling. Buy some if they are available, just keep in mind they are more addictive than one might think.
When you ask for a good starting dose, you need to specify whether for its intended use or for abuse. Intended use is: 5-10mg will induce sleep if you try to go to bed. I don't really recommend trying to abuse it because it doesn't really lend itself to that. But if you insist- 20-40mg would make you feel a bit weird i suppose.
These are ONLY my own personal findings.. Recreationally, I found
it most enjoyable laying down on my back, in a dark room [but not
completely dark, allowing some shadows to be projected on the walls],
with snack food in close proximity! I have had some of the most
fantastic experiences under these conditions.
A few times, I found myself in a dream state while awake where
environmental sounds [my air conditioner, foot steps in the hallway,
even my roommates snoring] worked into the dream (one of the most
memorable times was when I found myself in a factory, where the noises
around me were displayed as machinery).
Other times, I'd keep my eyes open and I'd see the shadows on the walls
and other things in the room grow larger and smaller in size, and
sometimes 'bend' out of shape. But when I thought about what was
happening too much, everything would snap back to normal, so you have
to really try to keep your mind clear and relaxed.
Another thing, is that I get incredibly [bottomless pit] hungry.
Alot of food has tasted way too good [especially granola bars].
Sometimes I would get slight euphoria aswell. But I built up a
tolerance fairly quickly. Addictive? Personally, not at
all. I've also had no comedown, no short or longterm withdrawl,
and no hangover in the morning.
Nowadays it does not give me as many fun effects as when I first began
taking it, but in conjunction with some other meds I take at night it
does help me get to sleep. And I'll just mention again, these
have just been my own experiences, it's possible that no one else on
earth have had similar effects.
Yes this is a fun recreational drug, however its an odd one. I'd say the feeling is a mix between other benzo's and alcohol, I can never walk straight, decent euphoria. At high doses expect not to remmember everything, if you are a teenager and live with your parents make dam sure they will be asleep or out of the house because I did alot with a few other benzos, I remmember being high then falling asleep when I woke up. But more happened I guess my parents talked to me and I was very noticable wacked out on something. The next day I went to work came home and told them I was going out, thats when they said "not after what happened last night" then I thought shit what did I do know, and asked " last night?" they replied you don't even remmember do you....nope not a clue They asked what I was high off of I told them they don't need to know. And they left it alone. Looking back at all this I just think its dam funny. Probally gonna be a long time till I can get my hands on some more though. I'd love to try this and marijuana.
first and only time i ever took ambien, i took 40mg all at once. man was that weird. it somewhat reminded me of high doses of dipenhydramine/dipenhydrinate. i was having visual delusions (not hallucinations, i find there is a destinct yet indescribable difference) as well as mental delusions. i remember i could feel it coming on, and i felt so overwhelmingly tired. i sort of stumbled over to the closest place i could lie down. the next 6 or so hours i was in a complete daze. i didn't move from my spot. i think i was sleeping about half the time. impossible to tell though.
i remember i was lying down with a plastic bin full of spaghetti (i hate spaghetti) and eating it with a large metal fork. then water started dripping on my head, which really scared me. i felt my pillow and it was all wet, along with my head. i looked up to discover that the water was dripping right off my ceiling, but not through a hole or anything, just coming right out of the ceiling. i blacked out right after my discovery.
when i woke up slightly coherant again i instantly remembered the water, but there was no water. everything was completely dry, no leak, anything. the spaghetti wasn't real either.
first time i took ambien was 20mg and a whole lot of drinking and about
15 minutes after take it i was trying to walk down the road (about 2am)
and i had the urge to pretend i was a spinning storm and spun faster
and faster and looking up at a street light. then i couldnt
figure out which waty was up and i jumped really hard in to the street
and gashed my elbow and knee ( big scars now). i tried to stand
up and just kept stubling and then i jumped straight into the sidewalk.
those gashes took about 8 hours to finally stop bleeding and like 2
months to heal.
i went back to a buddys house and didnt remember what happened over the
next 2 hours but i was told i was bouncing off the walls and signing
songs abiout shrimp. i never went to sleep till the next
night. so i guess im saying dont spin in circles. also i
read after that drinking with ambien can slow down your heart really
low and it could sstop so dont do that either. its a fuckin fun drug,
I love Ambien!! It helps me sleep so good w/out a hangover. Recreationally, it's pretty euphoric. You can tell when it kicks in, everything is like almost paralyzing and slower. The most I took was 40mg., though so I don't know if that's considered "recreational" enough.
Ambien can be really crazy, and at much lower doses than you'd
expect... I remember when I first started taking them, I took
them exactly as prescribed and got very pleasant effects at 10
mg. Of course, that changes over time... One strange thing
about Ambien is the fact that if you take enough to get that state
similar to tripping, A) you probably won't remember it in the morning,
and B) while you're on it you have a strange urge to take more and more
and more... For that reason, it's good to have a sober person
hold them, so you don't take too much in one night, which would suck if
only because it ensures that you won't remember the fun part.
SWIM took a dose of 40 mg, then when things got weird, ended up going
through about 14 10mg tabs in one night. I know this sounds like
a lie, but SWIM woke up completely naked, UNDER his bed (which is not
that high off the ground). He couldn't find his clothes for a
long time, then as he went out to his car (which is on the street, a
good distance from his house) found them in his driveway. SWIM
was alone that night, and needless to say, he doesn't really want to
know what happened, and certainly hopes no one else does. (I am
not encouraging this sort of behavior in any way -- that is a
dangerously high does, and SWIM would not have taken it intentionally
and is very glad that nudity is the worst thing that happened, as far
as SWIM knows...).
Oh, and if you haven't figured this out, you won't have ANY fun if you
eat anything within 3-4 hours before you take them. Once they
kick in, however, eating is fun, and SWIM discovered that while he was
eating and Ambien-tripping, he could imagine that whatever he was
eating (say, plain slices of bread) was something else (say, ice cream)
and found it to be equally yummy. Maybe that only works for SWIM,
I don't know.
What is the concentration? If it is 5 or 10 mg, (correct me if I'm wrong), it should be smaller than a tictac, and white.
Of course, your "internet pharmacist" could have created a sugar pill
that's the same size. Most likely your body just doesn't like
it. Drugs have different effects concerning different
people. Maybe you're just unlucky.
If you took 50mg of ambean, it would be hard not to notice them. my highest dose was 30mg, and I fell down some stairs and woke up the next morning all cut and scraped up. I didnt remember one damn thing. Was this your first time to use ambiean? Do you have another souce to compare to?
Whenever i take ambien it fucks me up but it comes with a cost, projectial vommiting. I can't explain it but almost everytime I take the stuff I vommit, I don't usually remeber a whole lot after that. If anyone knows how I can stop this let me know.
ive never heard of ambien before. is it better than codeine. i tihnk codeine is pretty good, but if you take too much, it gives u fuc ups for the next day. how would you campare it to ambien. just one person tell me its better than codeine and i will get some.
where can you get it by the way, are there any orther drugs out of this section that are worth trying, not tried any of them yet.
i love ambien and can't seem to get high off codeine. i take 3 times a
dose of codeine that my mom takes (non recreationally) and she will end
up nappin on the couch i feel nothing. so for me ambien is better, i
find 20-40 mg's is really fun take them in the middle of the day thats
when my best experiences are. however i get amazing(and very strange
dreams) when i go to bed on ambien. for a first time i would suggest
20mg's ambien is a great drug and i highly reccomend it. Ambien is the
number 1 perscribed sleep aid in america so it shouldn't be to hard get
a perscriptions for i have one and i use it almost everyday and have
been for about 3 weeks. i don't think its addictive at all i do think
its very fun. good luck and have fun
yesterday i took 4 10 mg pills of zolpidem and i didnt get any visuals that were on the other side of suggerstion or placebo, if they were for ral they were very mild and ordinary, not like melting or the typical wind effect, i just saw a leaf glowing red and shit. I also took 1 10mg diazepam and 1 2m clonazepam to see if it could help. That day i had also taken some more diazepam and tramadol. maybe the tramadol caused the no reaction or maybe my high tolerance to benzos crossed to zolpidem, making me inmune to its "psychedelic" effects. maybe i did something wrong, any suggestions, even on set and setting? now im going to take a few shots of cognac and whiskey to make this lost somewhate more enjoyable since all i got was past the dreamy state the typical strange thoughts. ive taken ambien before and i did have a great experience, i dont know why this happened, wether my toolerance for benzos or the tramadol...
Ambien reacts very differently for each individual. In my experience some people will get some pretty good visuals and a nice body high. Now SWIM never got anything fun or recreational from Ambien, but many people would disagree.
yeah i agredd with you until i remembered i had another experience with ambien in which i had taken 20 mg and forgot about it, then from nothing i got my visual field all cleared and dark/brighter can't really explain it, i had an euphoria so strong i was drooling over the counter in which i had entered i dont know why, mild viuals. strange, must be a diet of benzo and tramadol (and cannabis) which is doing this? or maybe sometimes ill get it and sometimes not.
anyways, i took 300 mg of dxm the other day and i got dxm wffects (1-2 plateau) mixed with serotonin syndrome (diarrhea), maybe trhe same diet is causing this?
and another question, i know this drug belongs to another forums but some of us do other drugs, so, ifyou had taken valium (which has a half life of 20-100 [36-200] hours) and some days later you took LSD, did you notice any negative effect on its potency?
