| Fox News – Roseanne Barr filled Dr. Mehmet Oz in on some of the effects she’s come face to face with while on Ambien.
“I Ambien eat, like how Tiger Woods Ambien drove. It’s a weird drug,” Barr told Dr. Oz in a video teaser for her appearance next Tuesday.
In the clip, Oz confronts Barr about her use of the sleep drug, which she used as an excuse for sending a controversial tweet after the cancelation of her hit show “Roseanne.”
“I’ve done some weird things on Ambien, and I think a lot of people have,” she said. “I’ve heard from thousands of people about it.”
Barr’s appearance on the season premiere of “The Dr. Oz Show” airs Tuesday, Sept. 18. Read more, watch the clip.
