I am raising an Autistic little boy, and was prescribed Ambien to help me sleep. I was terribly depressed, and unable to sleep. My husband soon discovered that I was in such a comatose state, I was defenseless to fight off his advances. In short, my husband started to rape me while I was on Ambien. He would crush it in my drinks or convince me to take 2 so I would feel rested for the next day of therapy with my son. I was totally helpless to fight him off. It was not consentual in any way, shape or form. He has admitted in therapy to raping me, however, he denies it now. Ambien is a very serious drug, do NOT assume you are safe from a predator. Use extreme caution.
