Ambien "wakes up" the minimally conscious?

You really must watch this touching video of a man whose minimally conscious state can be alleviated for about an hour a day after taking the sleep drug, Ambien.
Of course, we can't say anything about how this effect might generalize as this is only one patient's experience, but you can see from the video just how amazing of an experience it is!

  1. I've taken ambien for years. I can honestly say I can't sleep most nights without it. It really works, but im codependent on it now. The generic for it, zolpedum, in my opinion doesn't work as well. I have chronic pain and can't sleep at night, this is why it was perscribed in the first place. I have also had amnesia.
