Can you take Suboxone and Ambien (zolpidem) together just for one night?

Can you take Suboxone and Ambien (zolpidem) together just for one night?

Dual diagnosis: I recommend not taking ambien (zolpidem) and suboxone. Withdrawal and insomnia is part of the process of withdrawal. Taking another potentially addictive medication is not recommended. I would only advise it's use under the strict oversight of an addiction specialist during the time of use under a medication of Suboxone which enhances it's effects ...Read more

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep: Generally a small amount of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep is benign. However you indicate you took "71 teva", i presume you mean teva 74 imprint (which is ambien/zolpitem 10mg). If that is all you took and are age 26, i would say you can take 50-75mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help you fall asleep if there are no other factors that would contra-indicate it. Talk to the md who prescribes you Ambien about your sleep problem. ...Read more

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

Do Ambien and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) work the same way?

Not at all: Ambien is a prescription only sleep aid which works directly on the brain to reduce electrical activity thereby causing sleep. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) which is used for treatment of allergies causes sleep as a side effect by working on different than Ambien brain receptors called H1. Consult with a physician if you need to take sleep aids on a regular basis. ...Read more
