1st question can you take Lexapro after taking nexium40mg in the morning. 2nd question can you take Ambien (zolpidem) at night for bed time 5 mg ?

1st question can you take Lexapro after taking nexium40mg in the morning. 2nd question can you take Ambien (zolpidem) at night for bed time 5 mg ?

No: Nexium (esomeprazole) taken with Lexapro can cause significant side effects by intensifying the effects of the Lexapro to bring about confusion, hallucination, heart issues etc. Ambien may also be an issue with Lexapro even though the fda has not reported anything, internet reviews from consumers have spoke of side effects. Please consult your physician before you mix these medicines. Take care. ...Read more

If I take .5 mg of lexapro in the morning and 10mg of ambien (zolpidem) at night to sleep is this safe?

Apparently,,,: Apparently, there are no known contra-indications to doing this.

20 mg Ambien (zolpidem) and 10 mg Lexapro daily. Can you OD on this? I keep it locked but at same time concerned. What to be aware of potential issues.

20 mg Ambien (zolpidem) and 10 mg Lexapro daily. Can you OD on this?  I keep it locked but at same time concerned. What to be aware of potential issues.

Side effects, not OD: Ambien (zolpidem) can cause many psychiatric side effects even at normal doses such as sleep eating, memory disturbances. 20 mg is excessive and need a safer solution to sleep. Lexapro not a factor. OD means non-responsive. If taking for the first time and have not developed a tolerance then possible with first dose, but only in a child, who shouldn't be given anyway! Adult dose max 5-10mg now. ...Read more

Depression, Anxiety: I understand your concern. Using Ambien (zolpidem) with Lexapro may increase dizziness and difficulty concentrating.
