    Default ambien, lunesta, and CANCER!

    I'm watching tv and see a commercial apparently law firmd are sewing the makers of ambien, lunesta, and one other drug.

    A pharmaceutical drug causing severe health problems? NEVER!!!

    Did the commercial state a specific type of cancer?

    I sure as shit wouldn't be surprised if this were true....

    They're sewing them? like stitching them together? haha, sorry. I had to fuck with you on that one, lol. I dont know why, but i tend have a strong urge to poke fun at mis-spellings. Love ya Ryan.

    back on topic, I saw an article recently about Z drugs causing leukemia and some other form of cancer I can't remember right now. I'll see if I can dig up that article.

    ^Lunesta and ambiens drug names both start with a Z and i think some other sleeping pills. I've seen a lot of people here use the term

    Like B&S said both of those drugs have Zs in their name. Lunesta is Eszopiclone and Ambien is Zolpidem. There's a few others that start with Zs or have Zs in their names. I like to think of it as a double entendre because ZZzzzz indicates sleeping.

    ambien causing cancer i have not heard of, but ambien causing schizophrenia i can tell you is true. a good friend of mine from elementry school developed one of the worst forms of schizophrenia from a short stint of using ambien. the guy is a trained judo fighter, and has schizophrenia that'll make the worst badass' balls shake.
    Everything written by 'smokey' is a work of pure fiction. It's not true folks.

    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...8.00685.x/full

    There's a few good peer reviewed journal articles like the one above linking zolpidem and Eszopiclone to cancer. It has been shown to cause melanoma and other epithelial skin malignancies. If you use Google Scholar (database of scholarly articles) to search for "zolpidem and cancer" you get quite a few articles about the link to cancers.

    From what Ive read there are is no direct correlation between ambien and schizophrenia. There's evidence that when it's used to treat schizophrenia the patient can get Extrapyramidal Syndrome- that is involuntary movements, such as those hallmarked by parkinson's disease. here's a good article about that: http://www.nature.com/clpt/journal/v.../6100069a.html

    And how old was he? Schizophrenia usually sets in in the late teens early 20s.

    it most likely just happened at that time, that's when schizophrenia usually starts showing up.

    I think Ryan is correct on this one, it is most likely a mere coincidence that his symptoms began showing.

    I really highly doubt that anyone can become schizophrenic from only a few doses of Ambien...

    Either way, I'm sorry for your friend smokey.

    Like Ryan said, Schizo usually starts showing later in life.

    "Fear of cancer" claims won't survive the pleading stage in most states. Even if those studies are valid, that alone is not enough to create a triable issue. Also, studies have shown if you live long enough, EVERYONE gets cancer.

    ^^^^^Shit I just got a writ of summons (and $250k lawsuit) from a 20 year old woman who I was in an accident with 3 years and 2 weeks ago. It was a bad accident, my car was totaled, I think the other one was too,and I got a ticket-which was dismissed immediately when I went to court-my insurance paid out 3 years ago, now they're back for more at the trough, good work if you can get it I guess. Sucks for me, the best possible scenario is that I pay a couple of thousand in legal fees, fucking parasites- I hope this girl was on the varsity volleyball team the last 3 years. End derail.
