Dalmane Vs Ambien
Yes: Dalmane aka Flurazepam is a long acting benzodiazepine.

Is it ok to take Dalmane or Restoril with klonopin and seroquel? The Remeron just gives me too much appetite.
Talk to your doctor : It might be better to increase the dose of your Seroquel. I would avoid adding another benzodiazepine such as Dalmane or Restoril. You are already taking Klonopin (a benzodiazepine). It's best to avoid polypharmacy and the risk of addiction. Also, you could develop rebound insomnia which means you can't sleep even though you are on medication for sleep. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

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.

These often are not addicting/do not cause tolerance. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
