Tesla TSLA CEO Elon Musk told The New York Times he sometimes takes Ambien because it's "often a choice of no sleep or Ambien." But some concerned board members have noted that the drug contributes to Musk's late-night tweeting, the outlet reported, citing a person familiar with the board's thinking.
