Roseanne Barr sat down with Dr. Mehmet Oz to kick off Season 10 of “The Dr. Oz Show,” Page Six has exclusively learned.

The disgraced comic will appear for the first half-hour and discuss losing her hit ABC revival, “Roseanne,” as well as her Ambien use.

“Well, I’ve done some weird things on Ambien and I think a lot of people have. I’ve heard from thousands of people about it,” Barr says on the show, to air Tuesday.

“One guy got up and cooked a turkey and ate it — that was, like, four hours, if you think about it — and didn’t remember it in the morning. And all the time that happens to me — when I go up in the kitchen and there’s a whole box of Triscuits laid out and eggs cracked on the wall, cheese everywhere. I ‘Ambien eat,’ like how Tiger Woods ‘Ambien drove.’ It’s a weird drug.”

The fallen star said she was on the drug when she tweeted out a racist comment about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett that ultimately caused the cancellation of the show.
