Ambien helps recovery after stroke in mice, Stanford


.

On December 18, Stanford reported:

.

Stroke recovery in mice improved by Ambien

.

Zolpidem, better known by the trade name Ambien, increased the rate at which mice that had strokes recovered their pre-stroke sensory acuity and motor coordination.

.

This must now be verified in humans. Rodent studies cannot be translated to humans, and all too often fail to help.

.

There are three publications on the use of zolpidem for persistent vegetative state.

.

Drug induced arousal from the permanent vegetative state

Of interest, I have recently seen two unusual responses to Ambien.

.

One man who underwent a repeat knee replacement in the same knee within a short time after the first. He feels severe pain and spasm around the knee and has developed severe depression. The only medication he has found to relieve the spasm is 5 mg Ambien twice daily.

.

Another patient developed severe personality changes with agitation, rocking the body in bed. In less than 20 minutes, after Ambien, she was perfectly normal, quiet, relaxed, calm.
