What can I use for sleep after stopping trazodone? Previously on geodon, risperdal, klonopin, ativan, melatonin. At this point believe brain wont cbt

Some alternatives: I don't understand the meaning of your last sentence; does it mean you have tried insomnia-directed cbt (as well as attention to sleep hygiene) but it hasn't worked? Sleep aids you didn't mentioned include rozerem, doxepin, and various otc herbal mixtures. Also, withdrawal from some of the meds you mentioned could interfere with sleep. And, i'm assuming you aren't using alcohol in the evenings. ...Read more

No relationship: the medications and the low antibody tigers are not related.See your pediatrician to see if further blood work needs to be done to check for immunodeficiency. ...Read more

I took 2 mg klonopin and 18 mg of melatonin not knowing I wasn't supposed to mix the two. Is there a chance I won't wake up? I'm worried :(

Relax: Melatonin is extremely safe. Walter Pierpaoli, MD, PhD, is one of the leading melatonin researchers in the world. Dr. Pierpaoli says that "Melatonin is so safe you can take it by the pound." I would be more concerned about Klonopin. A recent report in the British Medical Journal reported that even short-term usage of the benzodiazepines greatly increased the risk of later Alzheimer's disease. ...Read more

Yes, but: Higher doses of melatonin can actually interfere with normal sleep. Take 0.3 to 1 mg. 90 minutes before intended sleep and see how you do. There is a possible additive effect with your other meds that also can have sedative effects., . ...Read more

Is it safe to take melatonin, valerian with my klonopin and seroquel?

Is it safe to take melatonin, valerian with my klonopin and seroquel?

Sedatives ...: Possibly safe. Whenever I'm asked about "natural" supplements (unless they're professional grade brands - such as Thorne) keep in mind that they're not usually tested for purity or potency. That said, melatonin can amplify the effects of quetiapine or clonazepam, but to what extent is unknown. Definitely discuss all of your OTC & Rx meds with your doctor - perhaps a dose change might help. G'Luck! ...Read more

Doctor prescribed clonazepam 1mg for anxiety and also told me to take 10mg of melatonin everynite before bed. Is this ok and or safe?

Doctor prescribed clonazepam 1mg for anxiety and also told me to take 10mg of melatonin everynite before bed. Is this ok and or safe?

10 mg Melatonin?: 1mg is a commonly used dose of clonazepam, and is often given at night. I agree with dr. Ali that you might not need both at the same time. The 10mg dose of melatonin seems very high. Physiologic doses of melatonin are around .3mg -- and most adults take 1-3 mg when needed. Even rozerem, a prescription melatonin receptor agonist, is dosed as 8mg. You might want to re-look at your 10mg dose. ...Read more

Can I take melatonin without any rysks? Does it have some colateral effects? Does it mix with a little dose of clonazepam? (0.3)?

Melatonin: Melatonin is very safe with very few interactions. If you look up the interaction in a pharmaceutical database, it reports increased sleepiness from the combination of melatonin and clonazepam, which is presumably what you want. ...Read more
