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

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

Dual diagnosis: I recommend not taking ambien 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

I have a very strong body odor. I am hiv+. I take suboxone, effexor, complera for hiv, vistaril, viibryd, ambien. It is affecting the people around me?

I have a very strong body odor. I am hiv+. I take suboxone, effexor, complera for hiv, vistaril, viibryd, ambien. It is affecting the people around me?

MOM may be helpful.: Suboxone, effexor, and viibryd can all be contributing to excessive sweating that is the usual cause of body odor when the sweat interacts with skin bacteria. It is my understanding that a daily bath followed by dabbing a small amount of milk of magnesia (mom) under arms and on other high sweat areas often significantly helps. If any of the medications are stopped, a supervised taper is required. ...Read more

Not sure of question: Did your doctor reduce or stop your suboxone or just add ambien. What you are describing is not a typical reaction to Ambien, although each person varies. I would check this out with your doc. If he reduced you suboxone, your symptoms would make more sense. ...Read more

HIgh risk pregnancy: With these illnesses and medications, she has a high-risk pregnancy. She needs a good team to see her through: maternal-fetal medicine physician, psychiatrist, and therapist.

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?

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
