Ambien Allergy In Children
Why? If unison is basically a very safe allergy pill, why couldn't u use it to give a boost to your ambien?
Drug interaction: Not a boost, if combined, you would get rather more side effects not benefits, so better not to, best wishes ...Read more

My allergies keep me up at night. What aid do you recommand? I am familiar with things like Aerius but not with things like Ambien (zolpidem)..
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. 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

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 more
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

Detox and treatment: Ambien (zolpidem) addition can be very dangerous. If tapering doesn't work, a formal detox is needed. Ambien (zolpidem) detox is similar to alcohol or other sedative detox. Detox with benzodiazepines, barbiturates or anticonvulsants is the most likely withdrawal treatment after detox, treat the addiction like you would any other, with abstinence, therapy, support groups, drug screening, etc. ...Read more
