Avoid sedatives: Focus on treating allergies. Try over the counter antihistamine like Claritin, Allegra or Zyrtec. Nasacort, which is once daily nasal spray is also now available over the counter. Please avoid Ambien (zolpidem) or any other sedative at your age. ...Read more

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?

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?

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. It's better than asking for more medicines when it's not clear "why" you're having this problem. If you're still taking vyvanse (as on your other info), this may be related. Ambien (zolpidem) can indeed result in feeling "weird" -- also doing odd things at night after taking it. ...Read more

Could Ambien (zolpidem) be causing my infrequent black outs?

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.

Are Valium and Ambien (zolpidem) similar?

Are Valium and Ambien (zolpidem) similar?

Not really: Valium (diazepam) is a benzodiazepine tranquilizer. Although it helps with sleep, it is mainly for anxiety and muscle relaxation, and can be taken during the day if prescribed that way. Ambien (zolpidem) is chemically different, only used for sleep, never during the day, and is not a tranquilizer (anxiety reducer). Valium is also habit-forming, Ambien less so (but can be too). ...Read more
