This site is stupid. I came here to attempt to prove to someone who I care about, whose memroy has been completely destroyed, that this shit is poison and is ruining their brain. You guys had me, until you came out with your stupid numbers. According to your stupidchart, people who take ambien for LONG periods of time (10 years or more) suffer LESS memory loss than those who take it for SHORT periods of time. This obviously makes no sense in any way, and therefore discredits everything else you said that seemed plausible. So thanks for nothin.

Your complaint shows a complete and fundamental understanding of medicine. Long term usage and fewer problems simply indicates the bodies ability to adapt. Pretty simple really.
