My mother is taking seroquel...ambien and xanax (alprazolam). 200mg seroquel and 120 pills of 1mg xanax (alprazolam) not sure of the dosage of ambien. Is this okay?

My mother is taking seroquel...ambien and xanax (alprazolam). 200mg seroquel and 120 pills of 1mg xanax (alprazolam) not sure of the dosage of ambien. Is this okay?

Too many sedatives: Without knowing the exact regimen my best comment is to note that care must be taken when using multiple medications with sedative effects. I assume the Ambien is for sleep and the Xanax (alprazolam) is for anxiety. I would argue both are short-term interventions and she will be best served if alternative approaches are explored. The only thing I can say with certainty is that she should NOT drink alcohol! ...Read more

I'm prescribed 10mg Ambien (zolpidem) 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 (zolpidem) 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 more
