I take a tiny bit of Suboxone each day & am prescribed 2mg klonopin/day but ran out of my ambien (zolpidem). Can I take 1 more 1mg klonopin to help me sleep2nite?
How to keep ambien (zolpidem) working? Only med that has ever worked for me. Will it have cross tolerance with other Meds like klonopin? I know it's short term but the belsomra rx I was given doesn't look promising at all.
Not sure there is a: Way. The use of ambien (zolpidem) may not continue if you develop tolerance. You might ask your doc if the dose is right. You have not mentioned your dose, it can be taken up to 10 mg at bedtime. There is not much cross tolerance with klonopin but actually may be additive effects. Would not suggest taking them together if not needed. Try the belsomra at the max dose prior to giving up. Ask your doc ...Read more

Dr just added 25 mg of trazadone for sleep...does this make sense rather than add ambien (zolpidem) or go up on klonopin?
How long should a dr prescribe ambien (zolpidem)? I have been on it for almost 2 years. He just keeps changing the combo. Ambien/Trazadone; Ambien/Klonopin, etc
Is it dangerous to take 2 mg of klonopin, 10 mg of ambien (zolpidem) and 50 mg of trazodone all within a half hour in order to sleep? I'm a 140 lb woman.
Usually a doctor will not start with all three of those medications at that dosage. If the medication is being titrated up such dosages might be prescribed. SOmetimes Trazadone will be an even higher dosage.
Hopefully you and your doctor will try to figure out why you are having trouble sleeping and psychotherapy might be considered. ...Read more
150 mg Trazodone, 1 mg klonopin. And 10 mg ambien (zolpidem). Ambien (zolpidem) doesn't work for me by itself been on klonopin for years. Trazodone was great in the past. Any thoughts.? Sounds like a major hangover to me.
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

Why would my psych doc prescribe klonopin and ambien (zolpidem) together for chronic insomnia? Doesn't that make tolerance go up faster for meds?
I understand your concern.
Both Klonopin and Ambien (zolpidem) can be habit forming, and you can develop tolerance.
Using Klonopin with Ambien (zolpidem) may increase dizziness and difficulty concentrating. Some people may experience impairment in thinking and judgment

My doctor put me on 1 mg klonopin plus 10 mg ambien for insomnia and anxiety to be taken together. I feel awful when I take together and doesn't really work that great? Wouldn't it be better to just increase the ambien and stop the klonopin?
Bad combo: Combining these medications should be avoided, since they are both sedatives/hypnotics. Also, long-term use of amben is not recommended. It would actually be better to treat your underlying anxiety to try and resolve your sleep issues, since long-term ambien (zolpidem) use leads to rebound insomnia and addiction. ...Read more
And I hate being on Prozac klonopin ambien (zolpidem) and add medicine and lots others and I would rather smoke marihuana because it helps all of these problems better for me. But I get drug tested.?
Illegal Most Places: Marijuana is illegal in must states still so must be avoided. I agree you need healthier alternative to all the medication. It has been shown that physical exercise can be very helpful. CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) is an excellent talk therapy that can be very helpful. ...Read more

I take Ambien (zolpidem) 10mg PO HS. In the past I have tried Ativan 2mg, Klonopin 2mg and Restoril 30mg. They All make me groggy! Would Halcion 0.25mg be better?
Sleeping Pill: Let me see if I understand your question correctly. You are taking a sleeping pill and you are concerned that they make you groggy. That is what they are designed to do! If you are groggy when you wake up then you are taking too high of a dose of the medication. All of the doses you have mentioned are the high range of the medication. Halcion is much longer acting. Ask your doc about 1/2 Ambien (zolpidem) ...Read more

I'm having lots of itching and sneezing. Want to try benadryl (diphenhydramine). Is it ok to take with klonopin, seroquel and ambien?
Lots of interactions: There are lots of interaction between all 3 medicines you are taking which in combination cause brain depression and psychomotor impairment. Adding Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will further aggravate side effects. Why do you have to take first three drugs in the first place. Look for the cause for depression anxiety or whatever reason you are taking mess. Visit us at www. Ehacstl. Com to see how you can be helped ...Read more

Bad idea: Mixing these medications increase sedation and drowsiness. Combination of these 3 drugs increases risk of CNS (central nervous system) depression, possible breathing crisis and death. See sleep disorders specialist (neurologist) for evaluation, diagnosis and proper treatment. Be safe and call your doctor. ...Read more
No.: You haven’t said what your doses are or what time. If you take them both at bedtime, then you increase the risk of behavioral and cognitive adverse effects, which zolpidem is notorious for. (Above all, don’t add alcohol.) And there can be a first time, when problems haven’t happened previously. Instead, discuss with your prescriber an alternative approach to your sleep problem. ...Read more
Cloneazepam ambien (zolpidem): Wow you are taking two medications that work on the Benzo receptor. Your Ambien (zolpidem) is far too high and current recommendation is that ambien (zolpidem) should not exceed 6.25mg and only to be used short duration. So I guess its not okay to use both at the same time. ...Read more
