Could an Ambien tab not activate right after ingesting? I wasn't able to fall asleep, but 8hrs later, i got dizzy with vertigo. I ate 2x in between.
A bad generic ?: I personally have taken a generic of Ambien that while it did help me sleep caused me to feel dizzy, nauseous, and to have brief spell of vertigo in the morning as well. I have had patients describe certain generics that simply did not help with sleep when the brand always did. So while I am very concerned that people take Ambien the correct way, I do believe there are some bad generics out there. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I drank baron beer and was not drunk but after one can I fall asleep and woke up but as I stand up I black out .. After that I had vertigo?
Low blood pressure: After only one beer it is highly unlikely that the beer caused you to be so sleepy. You may have been drugged. What other medication did you take with the beer? When you stood up you got dizzy which meant your blood pressure was too low. Rest, don't drink anything other than water and see your doctor if it continues. ...Read more

Yes : Yes this may be sleep paralysis but a full work up should be done by a sleep specialist to rule out other issues. Sleep paralysis is simply a sign that your body is not moving smoothly through the stages of sleep. Rarely is sleep paralysis linked to deep underlying psychiatric problems. The following is taken from web md: what is sleep paralysis? Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, you may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking. Sleep paralysis may accompany other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is an overpowering need to sleep caused by a problem with the brain's ability to regulate sleep. When does sleep paralysis usually occur? Sleep paralysis usually occurs at one of two times. If it occurs while you are falling asleep, it's called hypnagogic or predormital sleep paralysis. If it happens as you are waking up, it's called hypnopompic or postdormital sleep paralysis. What happens with hypnagogic sleep paralysis? As you fall asleep, your body slowly relaxes. Usually you become less aware, so you do not notice the change. However, if you remain or become aware while falling asleep, you may notice that you cannot move or speak. What happens with hypnopompic sleep paralysis? During sleep, your body alternates between rem (rapid eye movement) and nrem (non-rapid eye movement) sleep. One cycle of rem and nrem sleep lasts about 90 minutes. Nrem sleep occurs first and takes up to 75% of your overall sleep time. During nrem sleep, your body relaxes and restores itself. At the end of nrem, your sleep shifts to rem. Your eyes move quickly and dreams occur, but the rest of your body remains very relaxed. Your muscles are "turned off" during rem sleep. If you become aware before the rem cycle has finished, you may notice that you cannot move or speak. Who develops sleep paralysis? Up to as many as four out of every 10 people may have sleep paralysis. This common condition is often first noticed in the teen years. But men and women of any age can have it. Sleep paralysis may run in families. Other factors that may be linked to sleep paralysis include: a lack of sleep a sleep schedule that changes mental conditions such as stress or bipolar disorder sleeping on the back other sleep problems such as narcolepsy or nighttime leg cramps use of certain medications substance abuse how is sleep paralysis diagnosed? If you find yourself unable to move or speak for a few seconds or minutes when falling asleep or waking up, then it is likely you have isolated recurrent sleep paralysis. Often there is no need to treat this condition. However, check with your doctor if you have any of these concerns: you feel anxious about your symptoms your symptoms leave you very tired during the day your symptoms keep you up during the night your doctor may want to gather more information about your sleep health by doing any of these things: ask you to describe your symptoms and keep a sleep diary for a few weeks discuss your health history, including any known sleep disorders or any family history of sleep disorders refer you to a sleep specialist for further evaluation conduct overnight sleep studies or daytime nap studies to make sure you do not have another sleep disorder how is sleep paralysis treated? Most people need no treatment for sleep paralysis. Treating any underlying conditions such as narcolepsy may help if you are anxious or unable to sleep well. These treatments may include the following: improving sleep habits -- such as making sure you get six to eight hours of sleep each night using antidepressant medication to help regulate sleep cycles treating any mental health problems that may contribute to sleep paralysis treating any other. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
