Ambien Overdose Amount
Can i take melatonin and ambien (10mg) together? ambien has lost it's effects and melatonin barely works. whats an overdose level?
Melatonin and Ambien: do not have significant interaction. Melatonin (OTC) has a role in regulation of the sleep-wake cycle. May dose up to 20 mg/d. Ambien (prescribed) improves sleep onset; best taken without food. If effect lost then consult prescriber to review your situation and determine best course of action. Review good sleep hygiene (https://sleepfoundation.org/ask-the-expert/sleep-hygiene). Best regards. ...Read more

I want to reduce the amount of Ambien i take. I have 12.5 ambiencr and want to know if I cut 1 in half would that essentially make it a 6.25ir?
Do not cut: The CR pill is coated in a way that controls the time/speed the medication is released. Cutting it does not make it in to an IR formulation, it just makes the way the medicine will enter your system very unpredictable-not a good idea for a med with potential for serious side effects. Your doctor likely will appreciate your efforts to reduce your dose-call and ask for a new prescription. ...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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
