I took 4 ambien, (zolpidem) 3 klonopin and 3 zestoretic just so i could sleep, was it safe to mix those medications?

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.
Depends: 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Doctor gave me 5mg of Ambien (zolpidem) to take as needed with my remeron 45 mg at night to fall asleep fast is it ok ? Also take clonazepam 3mg and inderal 80mg
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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
