View Full Version : ambien and "cloudy" brain?

Has anyone else experienced this? I've been taking Ambien since July, anywhere from 5-10 mg most nights. I've noticed over the past couple months that even when I take my Adderall (30mg xr) I find it hard to focus on ANYTHING. I'll read things, but I don't feel like my brain is processing or absorbing them. It's almost like I'm never completely "all there."

My uncle used to take Ambien and said the same thing happened to him and has gone away since he stopped taking it. Obviously no way to tell if sleep meds are entirely to blame but I was wondering if anyone else started to feel like this after taking Ambien for an extended period of time.

I don't think it is the ambiens fault. I took massive amounts of ambien for recreational purposes and was fine the next day. Maybe the adderall isn't a high enough dose? I don't know, bring up these concerns to your GP next time you see him, he'll have a better answer than me
