Can You Mix Ambien And Oxycodone
Only if prescribed: Oxycodonw combined with xanax (alprazolam) and Ambien can result in fatal respiratory depression. They should only be used in combination if prescribed by the same physician. Too often patients are seeing several doctors who may be unaware of what each other is prescribing leading to potentially dangerous combinations. ...Read more
If prescribed that: Way. Ambien (zolpidem) is out of your system by now. As long as you're taking the prescribed dose of Oxycontin and he feel free to go ahead and do so. Also, for future reference, Ambien (zolpidem) as a minimal effect in terms of respiratory suppression so as long as you take the standard recommended adult dose of Ambien (zolpidem) along with the oxycodone I would not worry about it unless you happen to have advanced pulmonary disease. Best wishes. ...Read more
High risk meds: Would not suggest ever using the combo long term, given side effect profile and potential for creating tolerance and dependence. ...Read more

I have just been changed from Oxycodone 180mg QD to Methadone 50mg QD (for pain) I also take Klonopin, Soma, Ambien, (zolpidem) Lexapro & Tofranill, is this Dang?
Always be careful: methadone is a very effective pain medication with great pain control with less psychological overtunes You are on a lot of medication and some overlap like ambien (zolpidem) and klonopin, Soma and methadone and Lexapro and tofranil Also tofranil mixes with the methadone Make sure you are being followed closely ...Read more
Ambien (zolpidem) oxycodone: Yes you can but I would caution you on regular use. Both can cause dependency and both can cause a withdrawal if stopped. ...Read more
They are both narcotics. Although one is suppose to be longer acting, the action is variable and all you are doing is adding one narcotic to another and increasing the risk of overdose. I would leave the prescribing and directions to your doctor.
In the state of fl, there are about 3 deaths a day, due to overdoses, for this very reason. ...Read more
NO WAY!!: No and no! Both are sedatives, in other words make you sleepy and they can be additive. So they enhance each other and you can be knocked out and maybe even slow respiration and other not good things can occur. Pay attention to the label with the ambien (zolpidem). Pretty sure it say to not take with alcohol. ...Read more
Poly pharmacy: The two medications have opposite effects, so it doesn't make sense to take both at the same time. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a stimulant that is helpful in ADHD. Ambien (zolpidem) is a sedative/hypnotic drug for treating insomnia, it helps you sleep. However, if you take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) in the morning, it is acceptable to take Ambien to help sleep at bedtime. ...Read more
Can I mix 5mg Ambien (zolpidem) and 50mg trazodone? My Dr added the Ambien (zolpidem) but didn't say how exactly to take the two together
Side effects: This is not a good combination because the alcohol will potentiate the side effects of ambien (zolpidem). This could result in somnambulism or respiratory suppression at worst. If taking Ambien (zolpidem) I would eliminate alcohol consumption to maximize safety. If you take Ambien (zolpidem) every night you may want to explore approaches that will reduce reliance on medicine as recent research suggests this may not be healthy. ...Read more
NO: If you have an oxycodone habit - are physically dependent on the - and you take a Suboxone, you will experience withdrawal, which can be severe. If you are not, the Suboxone will pretty much completely block the effect of the oxycodone. If Suboxone is prescribed to you, your prescriber needs to educate you. If you are taking these without prescription, get some help with your drug problem. ...Read more
I recently took a Valium and oxycodone per doctors request for pain. Now I'm reading that you're not supposed to mix the two. Will I be okay?
These two drugs can in fact be taken together. They are both pain medications but work in entirely different ways.
However, always take medications as they are prescribed by your physician. ...Read more
Mixing: Very unwise! Why use stimulant with sedatives? Why risk deadly overlap of side effects, such as respiratory suppression and death! Too many celebrities and wannabes party with alcohol, benzodiazepines, and narcotic pains, and die in a bathtub, or while sleeping. Get some professional help for your desire to overlap these dangerous drugs, before you have a fatal accident! ...Read more
I took 4 ambien, (zolpidem) 3 klonopin and 3 zestoretic just so I could sleep, was it safe to mix those medications?
Is it okay to mix ambien and benadyrl to treat insomnia? I took benadryl (diphenhydramine) around 4hrs after taking ambien bc it didn't work, are there side effects?
No don't mix drugs: Please don't mix ambien with benadryl (diphenhydramine). I would first suggest you speak with your doctor who prescribed you ambien and him/her that you are still experiencing insomnia. Mixing prescription medication with drugs like benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be dangerous. Perhaps you should improve your sleep hygiene first. Sleep same time every night, bed is used only for sleep, cool dark room, no distractions (TV) etc. ...Read more
Oxycodone/fluoxetine: oxycodone will increase the level/effect of fluoxetine (affects enzyme CYP2D6 metabolism). Possible serious or life-threatening interaction. Monitor closely. Use alternatives if available. Opioids may enhance the serotonergic effects of SSRIs and increase risk for serotonergic syndrome. Oramorph is morphine. Talk with prescriber to review how meds affect you. Best regards for relief. ...Read more

A dangerous cocktail: These are all "suppressants" and can cause significant sedation. So mixing these together will form a dangerous cocktail. I strongly suggest that you don't try this, please. If you have significant medical/psychological problem/illness, please consult doc for help. Life is precious. Don't do foolish things you may regret later. Be good. Good luck, . ...Read more
Safety: Yes it is ok. But remember always consult with the prescribing physician. ...Read more
Don't mix: First of all, nobody should take methamphetamine as it is dangerous and illegal. Meth can cause neurological damage as well as damage the heart, cause strokes, and death. Percodan (oxycodone and aspirin) is an opiate and can suppress the brain's signals that tell us to breathe. Overdose with an opiate can lead to death from respiatory arrest. Meth + Percodan (oxycodone and aspirin) may have some drug interactions that are unknown/ unstudied. ...Read more
Ambien (zolpidem) is a sleep medication designed to provide you with uninterrupted sleep for about 8 hrs. There can be unwanted and even dangerous side effects. Sleep walking. Sleep eating sleep driving.
If you are tryiing to trip on Ambien (zolpidem) and use it for purposes other than to treat insomnia the results are not predictable. An overdose of Ambien (zolpidem) with or without other drugs may be your last trip. ...Read more
