Can I take two oxycodone 15 hours later after ambien (zolpidem)?

Can I take two oxycodone 15 hours later after ambien (zolpidem)?

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

Can you mix oxycodone with oxycontin? 10mg each

Why?: 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

Is it okay for me to use/mix Ambien (zolpidem) and Adderall together?

Is it okay for me to use/mix Ambien (zolpidem) and Adderall together?

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

What happens if you mix wine with ambien (zolpidem)?

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.

Get some professional help for your desire to overlap these dangerous drugs, before you have a fatal accident! ...Read more

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
