Specializes in Psychiatry

Medication effects: Trazodone and Klonopin may cause insomnia. Klonopin may cause Depression, emotional lability, confusion. Ambien (zolpidem) may cause drugged feeling, confusion. Using Trazodone with Ambien (zolpidem) and Klonopin may increase dizziness, difficulty concentrating, some impairment in thinking and judgment. See Psychiatrist for Medication benefits and side effects, dose, gradual withdrawal of medications; and Therapy.

Dr. John Chiu answered

Sleep study: This is a potentially very dangerous combination of drugs affecting the brain. Have you had a sleep study done to find out the cause? Depression or anxiety is another cause for insomnia. I would certainly explore both avenues instead of continuing on this medication cocktail. Don't delay any further.
