Dear Ambien-CR,

Thank you for recently sending patient information packets to my office (I've already safely recycled them, don't worry).

I know your logo is a rooster. I still don't understand this, since the drug is supposed to make you fall asleep, NOT wake you up. But whatever.

Anyway, considering another term for rooster is "cock", and we all know what that's slang for, perhaps you should think of a better package design than this. Or maybe license the logo to Viagra, instead.

Because somehow I can just see this ending up in a novelty store next to a mistletoe belt buckle.

You'd think these people would think it through, wouldn't you?

Or maybe they were stoned on their own product.

My husband had an Ambien-related incident this weekend that resulted in 5 staples in his scalp. They should count themselves lucky if all they came up with while on it is a crappy logo.

A little tweaking would do it: a hatchet poised over the rooster's neck or a shotgun aimed at it. Admittedly, disturbing images for those who see rooster and think cock....but memorable, no?

Oh, I got a whole bunch for this one. Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit! Seriously, Ambien? A rooster that says lift here under it? Whoever came up with that was dumber than a box of rocks.

There is a reason why you only you have one cock in the hen house! Pass out the Ambien CR to everyone and then you get all the cocks and hens together. Obviously this is not a logo, it's a warning.

So wadda I think? Follow the instructions and somebody is gonna be busier than a one-legged man at a butt kicking contest!

:) Just couldn't help myself. That silly picture brought it out.

Very enjoyable drug. I love forgetting everything that happened before lunch. If only it had actually helped me sleep.

Maybe the cock logo is due to the whole ambien sex thing. Just a thought.
