  Some suspected rumors have been circling over (our) Florida’s EverBlades Hockey player David Carnacchia, that he allegedly slapped a flight attendant, head-butted a passenger, and exposed himself on the American Airlines flight from his home in Toronto to join his team for a game in Texas.

  While getting the inside scoop it was rendered that Carnacchia had several drinks at TGIFridays, while waiting for his flight, as time approached for his departure he took 2 Ambien to help him sleep on the flight, that would have been 5-6 hour flight. Not reading the labeling carefully he took his sleep aids on a full stomach of alcohol.

  Reports have been flying about the the cautions of taking this sleep aid (any sleep aid-really) with alcohol.  According to court documents, the player became angry with a flight attendant after he was refused a third alcoholic drink while being on the plane. Cornacchia then allegedly slapped a male flight attendant with an open hand. (No actual witness was to this, nor was there any injury’s documented)

  Cornacchia also began cursing at other passengers and exposed himself to them, while he was restrained by a flight attendant from going to the bathroom. Flight attendants and an assisting passenger (who was considered a ‘dead-head pilot’ 21 year veteran of flying, but was a passenger) then secured Cornacchia’s hands behind his back with plastic restraints and belted him into a seat. Once again allegedly Cornacchia head-butted the assisting passenger who was helping to restrain him. But there was never a report of an injury or further explanation, or witnessed statements.
 
 This happened in December of 2007, Cornacchia’s lawyer, Michael Hornung, was able to work with the Federal Court system with the accounts and the un-realization of the Cornacchia’s behavior due to the intake of Ambien. With this Cornacchia’s jail time has been moved to one year and a day. If he’s good, he’ll be back on the ice in 10 months.

  Here we have one of our own, who is troubled with the consequences of Ambien and alcohol. Labels and precautions need to be more strongly inforced. These troubles seem to be arising more and more through out our society. There are better ways to get a good nights sleep, and to keep from harms way, ither that of others, or youself…

 

OTC sleep aids    

     Many people experiencing sleep problems understandably want a quick fix for their suffering. The thought of a pill that can solve the problem quickly is very appealing. Unfortunately, sleep medications don’t cure sleeplessness, and they can often exacerbate the problem over the long term. If you are contemplating on taking Over-the-Counter sleep aids, you should speak with your doctor or pharmacist, and get the right understanding of your sleepiness, and not self-diagnose.

I bet you didn’t know: The main ingredient of Over-the-Counter sleep aids is antihistamine (which is used to treat allergies) and is what causes you to become sleepy or drowsy.

     There are large amounts of side effects when it comes to taking OTC sleep aids. In reality you being tired or feeling that you’re not retaining a good nights’ sleep is because you might actually have sleep apnea induced sleep deprivation. Although, you can be completely unaware that you have sleep apnea, and that your are just waking up throughout the night. The metal and physical side effects of your own body going through sleep deprivation fighting with the side effects of the OTC sleep aids is an extremely dangerous cocktail. You can jeopardize your well-being and that of others around you.

*Most common side effects of Over-the-Counter aids:

 .Drowsiness                   .Forgetfulness   

 .Constipation                 .Urinary retention     

 .Dizziness                     .Blurred vision   

 .Lack of coordination     .Dry mouth and throat

*Most common side effects of Sleep Apnea/Sleep Deprivation:

 .Depression                 .Increased blood pressure     

 .Irritability                  .Learning difficulty/forgetfulness  

 .Sexual dysfunction      .Dry mouth and throat   

 .Drowsiness                .Lack of  coordination/falling asleep while performing simple tasks   

     Over-the-Counter sleep aids can create a tolerance and need to increase dosage within use of only a few days. Putting yourself in such a sedated sense, you’re relaxing your muscles even more, which are the main causes of sleep apnea, thus, making your arousal to breathe much harder, and causing more danger to your body.
