Of course Ambien is going to came back on blood test the same as all my other prescriptions for blood pressure, high cholesterol, hot flashes, fibromyalgia will show. I have been on all my meds for 2-3 years so I'm pretty sure I know what they do to me by now. My questions are: 1) I told them I take meds so why did I get arrested in the first place without any medical orambulance being called to make sure it wasn't stroke, seizure, etc instead of just being arrested and 2)do you think I could sue the police for false arrest for not getting me medical attention when I presented with a bump and cut on my head from where I think I passed out and I presented in a state of confusion. I thought it was their responsibility to get medical attention to an injured person at the scene of an accident? Plus there was a witness that followed me stating I was all over the road and I blew 0.0% BAC I did not drink or do drugs, something else happened to me and I told them that but they kept trying to get me 2 say I took drugs.
