"Oh my Gawd"..I couldn't believe Robin yesterday REVEALING another secret....about her illness..every once in awhile if you LISTEN closely you hear Robin drop a few revealing comments about being sick....surrounded by alot of "people" taking care of her etc...
She was talking about drugs when that FAKE druggie caller called in and Howard did another "Ben Stern" bit ...he said Howard was like a "father" to him. He was the Heroin addict who called in ....(the ringer caller who was probably an intern)
So Robin admitted she needs to take MEDS to sleep....due to her illness...the Dr's prescribed Ambien..and she said she FORGETS TO TAKE HER MEDS....(like most elderly people in dementia do)
She said she COULDN"T take the Ambien because of the side effects being groggy for work....WORK??? WHEN does she work?
anyway....PLEASE Robin do not TAKE AMBIEN...or the generic brand that is even WORSE....you can have HORRIBLE vivid hallucinations....and wake up
crazier than u already are! The movie Awakenings was based on the side effects from this dangerous drug...the generic brand too...after u crash into a 4 hour sleep u wake up CRAZY or ALERT....
I think Robin would wake up crazy
My poor Mom was given Ambien....(she was in her 80's) she experienced awful side effects ...hallucinating and screaming at night when it wore off. It was such awful knowing this and FINALLY when I had the legal rights I was able to stop the NH from giving her these horrible drugs! Finally they gave her MELATONIN...and she slept fine with NO SIDE EFFECTS!
With Robin's family history (Alz.) I would tell her NOT to take this drug and her Dr. is a JERK for giving it to her.
IF u can't sleep Robin....take a natural sleep aid....Melatonin..u can get over the counter or at your Health Food Store! It puts u to sleep like Tylenol PM and SAFELY with no side effects...it's all natural.
So if you're here reading our posts and threads...TimS.. or Gary or SOMEONE who cares about Robin....
PLEASE advise her to take Melatonin....NOT Ambien....
...HOward takes Ambien and look how crazy he's getting! And he's also
having Short Term Memory Loss....like Robin in Dementia!
That's my advice to Robin today!!
I hope she takes it....
peace & love
