Thats a SIDE Effect? 

I was watching TV last night and saw a commercial for Ambien... a perscription sleep aid. Now I've seen the commercial before, and I've noticed this little detail before... but I figured that since I now have a blog I'd post about it. During any perscription commercial they very quickly list the meriad of awful things that can happen to you as side effects if you take the drug. For Ambien... the very first side effect that they mention is drowsiness. Now forgive my ignorance... but isn't drowsiness supposed to be one of the primary effects? After all, what's the point of a sleep aid if it doesn't make you... well... sleepy? I suppose sometime soon the great people at Sanofi-Synthelabo (the maker of Ambien) will come up with a non-drowsy version... to help you get through your day. I wonder what will be in it.
