15 weeks pregnant, no ob gyn visits, has hypertension and has been taking xanex, percocet, seroqel, ambein and suboxon the entire pregnancy. Outcomes?
HIgh risk pregnancy: With these illnesses and medications, she has a high-risk pregnancy. She needs a good team to see her through: maternal-fetal medicine physician, psychiatrist, and therapist. She won't be able to withdraw from the opiates while pregnant, but will need a substance abuse program after delivery. Social services needs to be involved concerning parenting issues.

I need to get some sleep tonight. Can I take 1 Xanax, 0.5 and 1 Percocet to get a good nights sleep? Thank you
Not recommended: It's always best to use medications as prescribed. Xanax (alprazolam) is addicting. So is Percocet (oxycodone + acetaminophen). Both can also cause confusion & increase risk of falls. When used together, risk increases dramatically. So does death rate. Talk to your Family Doc about your insomnia. Consider OTC options. Research sleep hygiene. And avoid sedative-hypnotics like Ambien (zolpidem). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I was prescribed 1mg Ativan 2x/day today by a specialist who knows I take 10mg Percocet 5x/day. I've read that it is not safe to mix the two and I don't want to cause more problems than I have already. Is this safe? What could happen? Suggestions?
Talk with doctor: The combination of opiates (Percocet) and benzodiazepines (Ativan) can depress respiratory function and be a problem. They are frequently used together however. Adding a sleep aid such as Ambien makes this even more risky (think of Heath Ledger) so you should discuss your concerns with your prescribing physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm prescribed 10mg Ambien to take every night, and been on it for 5+ months. I've built up a tolerance, is there a higher dose I can take?
No: Ambien 10 mg is the maximum dose. The problem with ALL the tranquilizer type sleep meds is you build a tolerance to them and they don't work after a while. This is why it's best not to take these every night. Taking them every 2-3 nights works better. Alternative meds that could help with sleep are Trazodone, Remeron, or Vistaril. These often are not addicting/do not cause tolerance. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes: The studies would suggest not, but my experience with patients says yes. Ambien only treats difficulty falling asleep which can be due to many different problems. It doesn't treat the underlying cause, eg depression, anxiety, adhd, drug abuse etc. You need to treat the underlying cause otherwise Ambien will either not work or make the problem worse. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
