40 Mg Ambien
My husband is 6' 10" tall and weighs in excess of 350 pounds. The 10 mg dosage of Ambien does not work for him. Can he take more due to size/weight?
I would not: I would not do thatGet a more detailed answer ›
Probably not.: Most guidelines do not recommend ambien higher than 10 for women and in some cases stick to 5mg. Consider thinking about what other things you may be going through In your life at this time that could be adding to your stress and have an open conversation with your psychiatrist or therapist. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have been taking ambien 10 mg nightly for years but it wears off after about 3-4 hours can I then take a 1 mg of lunesta when I wake up. ?

Consequently, interactions with a drug that ain't even there, are not likely to be serious. Strongly consider SLEEP HYGIENE resources on this site. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Just took 1 mg lunesta. I have no more lunesta but have 5mg of ambien. I am still awake can I take the 5mg of lunesta?
Sleeping Pills: Lunesta 1 mg is a starting low dose. It sounds like its not strong enough for you. Ambian 5 mg is also a starting low dose. It goes up to 10 mg. This answer comes an hour after you asked the question, so hopefully you're sound asleep! If not, its okay to take the 5 mg Ambian. But recommend just taking one of those at an effective dose, not both for longer use. Add Ashwagandha 500 mg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
