I have been taking ambien 10 mg nightly for years but it wears off after about 3-4 hours can I then take a 1 mg of lunesta when I wake up. ?

I have been taking ambien 10 mg nightly for years but it wears off after about 3-4 hours can I then take a 1 mg of lunesta when I wake up. ?

Generally yes: cannot say in your particular case AND ambien has an effective duration of about 3 to 4 hr. Often people wake up because it ain't there. Consequently, interactions with a drug that ain't even there, are not likely to be serious. Strongly consider SLEEP HYGIENE resources on this site. ...Read more

Just took 1 mg lunesta. I have no more lunesta but have 5mg of ambien. I am still awake can I take the 5mg of lunesta?

Sleeping Pills: Lunesta 1 mg is a starting low dose. It sounds like its not strong enough for you. Ambian 5 mg is also a starting low dose. It goes up to 10 mg. This answer comes an hour after you asked the question, so hopefully you're sound asleep! If not, its okay to take the 5 mg Ambian. But recommend just taking one of those at an effective dose, not both for longer use. Add Ashwagandha 500 mg. ...Read more

Above FDA limit: The FDA limit per day is 3mg, and they are actually now recommending less than that. http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm397453.htm There are other meds and behavioral therapies that can be more successful in the long term if a current medication is not working. ...Read more

Is it true that lunesta 3 mg a better alternative when quitting klonopin 1 mg?

Is it true that lunesta 3 mg a better alternative when quitting klonopin 1 mg?

Not necessarily: Lunesta is a fast-acting non-benzodiazepine sleep agent that shares some pharmacologic action with Klonopin (a benzo). It produces sedation at doses lower than those for muscle relaxation and anticonvulsant action. Initial dose for sleep is 2mg, with possible increase to 3mg if medically indicated. Still a controlled substance. ...Read more

I have had ambien, trazodone, and now lunesta. I took 2 mg of luniest but it's not working; can I take 5 mg of ambien?

No: Stop it, please. Adding more sleeping agents without consulting your prescribing dr is always wrong. Rather go back to the office and ask what other measures and meds can be tried, give your dr a fair chance to fix it please. ...Read more
