Is combining Ambien cr with 50mg of trazadone safe? Ambien isn't working anymore and I have trazadone was wondering if I can take if Ambien fails?

Now sounds like a good time to leave your doc a message about how Ambien has become ineffective (which is one of the many drawbacks of habit forming meds).

I've never taken ambien cr. I took ambien for five years long term. No longer works like it once did. Explained to sleep doc and he still wants me to try it? w the Trazodone 150 mg I stopped after being on it for a year and it stopped working.

May work better: Ambient CR is a slightly higher dose than the regular ambien and it is a controlled release (CR) so that the medicine is enters your bloodstream over an extended period of time, so it may help keep you asleep longer. I hope it helps! ...Read more
