Lunesta T.V. ad. WTF?

I have no problems going to sleep. Thank god. A commercial for Lunesta is running on T.V. and this is what I heard at the end.
"Please contact your doctor if you find yourself walking or driving while asleep using Lunesta". What? I only saw it once but I am pretty sure I heard what I think I heard.



Another one that makes me want to puke is the grey hair for men product using a Cream song. "Sunshine of your Love". That goof ball on stage with the guitar giving his gal a smooch. Eric Clapton must be puking. I heard it is a cover of the song.

OK I feel better.....

yeah, i really like how in united states pharmaceutical companies come up with a drug, and then they come up with a sickness that that drug cures. But for some reason the drug has more side effects than anything.....

"you are late to work every morning? you may have a disease that millions of American suffer from - WORKLATIS! Ask your doctor about THEREONTIMESIL! Side effects may include sickness, loss of sleep, diarrhea, vomiting, hot flushes, cold sweat, weak bones, sleep walking, priapism, risk of stroke and high blood pressue. Please do not drive, walk, or operate heavy machinery when you are taking THEREONTIMESIL!"

An infection could be manageable. Driving while asleep?

I understand Ambien has the same side effect. Patrick Kennedy crashed his car into a security barrier near the Capitol last year and explained that he was asleep at the time. There is an article about the incident here.

From the Lunesta website:

SPECIAL CONCERNS “Sleep-Driving” and other complex behaviors

There have been reports of people getting out of bed after taking a sedative-hypnotic and driving their cars while not fully awake, often with no memory of the event. If a patient experiences such an episode, it should be reported to his or her doctor immediately, since “sleep-driving” can be dangerous. This behavior is more likely to occur when LUNESTA is taken with alcohol or other central nervous system depressants. Other complex behaviors (e.g., preparing and eating food, making phone calls, or having sex) have been reported in patients who are not fully awake after taking a sedative-hypnotic. As with sleep-driving, patients usually do not remember these events.

So...Don't make a sandwich, get comfortable, call your favorite 900 girl and wank it when taking Lunesta?
