Klonopin And Lunesta Together
Not necessarily: Lunesta (eszopiclone) 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

Have a sleep study in a week can I take a Ambien or lunesta (eszopiclone) to fall asleep quick? I take clonazepam 3mg inderal 80mg and remeron 45 mg at night?
Yes, reluctantly: Clonazepam is used for anxiety reduction, it has little sleep inducing effect. Ambien (zolpidem) is for sleep induction, it has little anti-anxiety effect. However, together you could get more than an additive effect, which could be dangerous. Talk to your doctor about the uses for each, then consider trying the one that fits your problem the better. There are other ways to solve these problems as well! ...Read more

Who knows/ best not: There are no systematic studies of the 2 together. So, in one sense - who knows! However, if a recommendation is to be made on the basis of clinical reasoning, I would say it makes no sense to combine these 2 medications, and a person doing so better be ready for s/e that they may not experience on either one alone. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can you take percocet and klonopin (clonazepam) together? If not, how long do you have to wait between the two? Having anxiety from taking percocet that possible?
Not good together: They can both cause drowsiness, dizziness, impairment in coordination and slowing of respiration. If you need an anxiolytic you should consider a switch to a shorter acting benzodiazepine such as Ativan or xanax (alprazolam) instead of klonopin. If you are not suffering from severe pain consider a switch to Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen from the percocet. ...Read more
