Stop which one?: First of all, Mirtazapine is an antidepressant. Don't stop taking it without discussing with your prescribing md. That said, if you are taking Mirtazapine you should sleep well enough that you would not need the ambien (zolpidem). So I will assume you want to go off ambien (zolpidem). Taper it. Lower it to 1/2 tab and see if you still sleep ok, then 1/4 tab, and if ok, then stop. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I could take Ambien Xanax (alprazolam) remeron and hydroxozine at the same time?

Can you tell me if I could take Ambien Xanax (alprazolam) remeron and hydroxozine at the same time?

Would not advise it: These are all sedating drugs, and may work in either an additive or synergistic way. Even if only additive, the accumulated effect may be excessive sleepiness, which could be dangerous if alertness is required - like driving or operating machinery, or even taking care of children and crossing a street. If synergistic, the effects could be dangerous and include respiratory depression. Talk to md. ...Read more

Are there any reason why my Adderall seems to not work when I take my remeron, buspar, (buspirone) or kolonpin or ambien. All low doses except 30mg add?

Overdosing: There is no scientific evidence of drug safety when more than four or five drugs affecting one's brain are taken at one time. This significant list of medications taken together raise all kinds of warning flags. In my practice when someone is on this many mental health medications at once I always request a second opinion from a different mental health professional. This is not safe. ...Read more

Sleep assessment: You need to rule out medical causes of sleep disruption if these sleep medications are not helping. For example, you may have an underlying sleep apnea or even a silent form of asthma, both of which can disrupt your breathing during sleeo and awaken you. Or you may have an underlying psychological condition affecting your sleep. Make an appointment with a neurologist who specializes in sleep probs. ...Read more

I've tried restoril trazadone remeron celexa an Ambien (zolpidem) none of them worked or just worked for like two weeks & stopped what's the best sleep meds?

I've tried restoril trazadone remeron celexa an Ambien (zolpidem) none of them worked or just worked for like two weeks & stopped what's the best sleep meds?

Worked for 2 weeks: Only Ambien (zolpidem) is habit forming. If you took many of those COMBINED and not sleep well, means you have severe mental disease not just sleep problem. If Rx works for only 2w then means not proper dosing for long term benefit. You have severe problem and need a psychiatrist early to avoid aggravation and waste of time and health by symptomatic treatment. ...Read more

What to do if I take norvasc, klonopin, accolate, Ambien (zolpidem) and remeron. And is there a safe pain killer to take?

Depends.: What type of pain are you trying to treat? If this is due to Arthritis, any NSAID like Naprosyn, Celebrex or Ibuprofen can help. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may also be helpful. These medications can be used for headaches, toothaches or muscles aches. Post-surgical pains may need a stronger pain medication initially such as Hydrocodone or at the discretion of the doctor. ...Read more

Is taking Ambien (zolpidem) 10mg and clonazpham and mirtzaphin and chlorpronazine and estaeolan at the same time safe my mother was told to trake all these medications at night before bed. I need to know if it is safe for her to do so

Talk to her doctor: There's no way that I can guess how complex your mother's condition may be. And she may have arrived at the current treatment regimen slowly, effectively, under close medical supervision. Therefore, you need to find out if she is dosing her medication precisely per doctors orders, then discuss any potential consequences of therapy with that physician. ...Read more
