Possibly. : Not contraindicated, but both can cause sedation, decreased reaction time, memory issues which may be increased with combination. Both also have some potential for addiction and development of tolerance with chronic use.

Depends on amount: Typically one should not mix alcohol and meds like klonopin, (clonazepam) both are central nervous system depressants and can combine to create an even greater degree of sedation and may slow your breathing. If a single glass of wine and a small dose of klonopin, (clonazepam) it is prob ok to take it within several hours of the wine. Klonopin (clonazepam) will be in your body for up to 1.5 days, but much of the effect passes in hours.

A 32-year-old female asked:

Ambient versus klonopin (clonazepam) can they be taken together?

Yes, reluctantly: Clonazepam is used for anxiety reduction, it has little sleep inducing effect. Ambien (zolpidem) is for sleep induction, it has little anti-anxiety effect. However, together you could get more than an additive effect, which could be dangerous. Talk to your doctor about the uses for each, then consider trying the one that fits your problem the better. There are other ways to solve these problems as well!
