I messed up. I already take Zolpidem Tartrate (generic Ambien) to go to sleep, but for some reason, I just wanted to feel that sleepiness right away on Friday. So, what do I do? I decide to take a random mix of pills in my house, e.g. Seroquel, Seroquel XL, Trazodone, etc. (Yes, it’s a bad idea to keep old pills I’m no longer prescribed to around, but I do it anyway).
Seroquel and Trazodone have never really been my friends, so I should have known that rather than making me fall asleep fast, they will simply make me sleep for the entire following day…..which is exactly what happened. I couldn’t get out of bed ’til about 5pm, making me miss my shift at work on Saturday. That zombie-like state I stumbled into from the cocktail of pills lasted pretty much until about mid-day today. I made it to work, albeit an hour late. They’re understanding because they’ve dealt with me on occasion with me and the meds, but I know they can’t keep being kind to me for too long.
Why do I do this to myself?
