was rushed to the hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina this morning after the longtime newsman reportedly felt light-headed.

A rep for MSNBC says ... "On the set of 'Morning Joe' this morning, Tom Brokaw felt light-headed. Out of an abundance of caution, he was taken to a hospital and is being evaluated."

How do you accidently take ½ a tablet of ambient while you are in a HOSPITAL? Nurses are there to dispense the medication you need and if he is taking pills that he brought he might want to tell the staff about it. Every heard of adverse drug interactions?

Took Ambien for years and never had the effects these people have. But then again I took them as prescribed.
