10 mg oral Pharms - Zolpidem (pill / tablet)


I've been taking benzo's, mostly Xanax for quite a few months for recreation/sleep aid. I ran out the other day, found some Zolpidem in my mom's cabinet and decided to give it a try after reading stuff online. I took the 10mg tablet at about 1 AM, it took about 15 minutes to hit my system and it felt nearly exactly like taking Xanax. I felt calmed, and slowly fell into a deep sleep. The only difference is while falling asleep on Xanax, I had little to no dream activity, but on Zolpidem I had very erratic dreams, they were all quick, probably ten different scenarios that I can recall throughout the night. I also slept nearly 12 hours. Overall I would take it again because it was very pleasant, even though I prefer Xanax.
