Did You Know?


When Roseanne Barr went on a "racist" Tweet spree on May 29, 2018, she immediately blamed sleep aid Ambien for the gaffe. Ambien, or zolpidem tartrate, is a type of sedative-hypnotic. It can help people with insomnia sleep, but it has also been linked to some strange incidents. Since being approved in 1992, Ambien's side effects have been well-documented. Drug manufacturer Sanofi updated Ambien's label in 2008 to detail side effects, including visual and auditory hallucinations, abnormal thinking and behavioral changes like aggressiveness, agitation, bizarre behavior, and even sleep-driving. Lawyers have successfully argued defendants should not be liable for car accidents, even those when the driver was under the influence of alcohol or other substances, because they took Ambien.

Having watched all seasons aired in the UK the first time round, this show became like having a surrogate family on tv. The characters are well rounded, some relatable, all entertaining. Like many sitcoms, it got a bit weird towards the end, as all shows are victim to the 'we're losing ratings so let's shake things up to get 'em back' ethos of panicking writers which eventually killed it. The first 8 seasons are well worth revisiting if you're able. I hope this gets picked up by a streaming service so it can be enjoyed fully once more.
