23 old male, 6"2' , 150lbs, no allergies. Seem naturally very tolerant to combining lunesta (eszopiclone) 3mg, Ambien 5mg, and vistaril 100mg to sleep. Suggestions?
Stop the meds: Lunesta/ambien and vistaril not working? You need to wean off these meds and see a sleep specialist. You can try Restoril (temazepam) or trazadone or neurontin, but i doubt it. You should consider seroquel or zyprexa as you may have bipolar disorder, esp if you cannot shut your mind off at night. ...Read more
I was prescibed trazodone for insomnia but had allergy next he prescibed Ambien but makes me feel weird, is it bad to suggest Xanax (alprazolam) or other med?
Cause for insomnia?: Referral (possibly to psychiatrist) for thorough evaluation of your insomnia might be the smartest request you could make.

Yes: Ambien (zolpidem) is a great sleeper to have on hand but can do as you mention in some individuals. However "black outs" have different meaning to different people. To me these sound like some form of seizures and need immediate investigation. What is needed and when can only be decided by your primary doc and he may want a neurologist involved in the workup. Do not delay visit to primary doctor. ...Read more
My be less potent: Medications start to lose their potency after 2-3 yrs so you would be in the grey window with just over three years when the medicine was prescribed. But it is worth trying for a couple of nights before calling your doc for a refill, if needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
