20 Mg Ambien
20 mg Ambien (zolpidem) and 10 mg Lexapro daily. Can you OD on this? I keep it locked but at same time concerned. What to be aware of potential issues.

Lexapro not a factor. OD means non-responsive. If taking for the first time and have not developed a tolerance then possible with first dose, but only in a child, who shouldn't be given anyway! Adult dose max 5-10mg now. ...Read more
