Sheared Brain Stem

My daughter Stacey, was in an automobile accident Feb 3, 2001. She had tramatic brain injury, along with a sheared brain stem. She is total care. I take care of her at home. She is now 31years old. She only has a feeding tube. There has been alot of discussion and research being done on Ambien, and its effects on people with brain injury. I have researched this myself, and found several cases where Ambien has helped these patients become more alert. Now, does anyone know if this Ambien can help someone with a sheared brain stem?

Hi, sounds like you have your hands full. Just try it, with drs permission of course. I have seen how it makes Jims brain click in a different way. All we can do is try different things and hope they help in some way. Ruth
