Rule number one of using sleep aids: try your best not to stay awake afterwards. As many people have learned at their peril, that’s when things get seriously weird. This is never more true when it comes to taking Ambien; the drug has a reputation for blackout behavior that is hilariously bizarre.
Its effects are so notorious that there is even a special corner of the internet dedicated to their documentation. For ten whole years, r/ambien has made itself into a home for all those confused, bewildered and amazed by their sedative-induced haze. Much of its content represents a level of derangement not even the finest of sh*tposters could recreate. As a result, we are gifted plenty of posts like the ones on this list, which deserve to be treasured.
