Snorting Ambien 10mg
"Results"?: By snorting medications or drugs, the "results" you get could be devastating to your health and well being. Little particles of ground up Ambien could end up in your lungs, creating the environment for infection or worse. Not to mention the unknown pharmacological results of snorting a medication formulated to be swallowed and processed in your GI system. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm prescribed 10mg Ambien to take every night, and been on it for 5+ months. I've built up a tolerance, is there a higher dose I can take?
No: Ambien 10 mg is the maximum dose. The problem with ALL the tranquilizer type sleep meds is you build a tolerance to them and they don't work after a while. This is why it's best not to take these every night. Taking them every 2-3 nights works better. Alternative meds that could help with sleep are Trazodone, Remeron, or Vistaril. These often are not addicting/do not cause tolerance. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I currently take 10mg of ambien but have taken 20mg in the past. 10mg is not working. Can I take 15mg?
Your choice what you: do, as always. 10 mg/day is the max approved dosage, adjusting to response makes sense. Study the Prescribing information, for Ambien at: http://products.sanofi.us/ambien/ambien.pdf & https://www.google.com/search?q=ambien+overdose, https://www.google.com/search?q=zolpidem%20molecule.

Ihave been on generic Ambien 10mg for 5 yrs now, seems as if it is startin not 2 work as well, isn't there a stronger/or different form of ambien?
Other medications: Using Ambien non-stop for that long would be expected to not work after awhile, because tolerance has likely developed. Ask your doctor about other possible medications that might pertain to your own case. I'm not sure if your sleep disturbance has been fully evaluated, as to why you need a medication like that for such an extended period? A sleep medicine doc and/ or psychiatrist could help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I stopped using alcohol 4 days ago. I was also using Ambien and lirazepam for the last month or so. I'm only using 1 10mg Ambien, want to stop, help?
Lorazepam?: This probably needs to be tapered if you've been on it a while. Conversion to a longer acting benzodiazepine like Klonopin can help with the tapering process. I suggest you enlist the aid of a neuropsychopharmacologist. (Any good, caring and available doctor would do for now ) When all is said and done you should find that the ultimate treatment is better than the untreated underlying condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
