Sleep study: This is a potentially very dangerous combination of drugs affecting the brain. Have you had a sleep study done to find out the cause? Depression or anxiety is another cause for insomnia. I would certainly explore both avenues instead of continuing on this medication cocktail. Don't delay any further. ...Read more

Can I split Ambien in half, 5mg before bed and 5mg in the middle of the night. When I can't sleep anymore ?

Yes, but...: ...That's not ideal. For some people, ambien's 2.3hr half-life is too short. First i'd try switching to Lunesta (6 hour half-life) or Ambien cr. If those are too long-acting (causing morning "hangover"), i'd go back to Ambien 10 at night, and sonata (1hr half-life) for nighttime awakenings. With sonata, its half-life is so short, you can take in middle of night and usually be okay in the morning. ...Read more

Can I take Ambien and Tylenol PM together?

Can I take Ambien and Tylenol PM together?

Yes.: The Benadryl in Tylenol PM may enhance the sedative effects of the Ambien, so You should be very careful. Take the Tylenol PM first and give it an hour and if you are still awake, take Ambien. People who had used this combination had complained of a hangover the next day. If your insomnia persists, it might be best to get a sleep study in order to get down to the roots of your problem. ...Read more

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 more
