Take 2 Ambien
Dual diagnosis: I recommend not taking ambien (zolpidem) and suboxone. Withdrawal and insomnia is part of the process of withdrawal. Taking another potentially addictive medication is not recommended. I would only advise it's use under the strict oversight of an addiction specialist during the time of use under a medication of Suboxone which enhances it's effects ...Read more
I am a 39 year old female, can I take 2-5mg Ambien (zolpidem) as 1 only allows 2 hrs of sleep. I have not slept more than 4 hrs a night in 2 years.
Ask your own doctor: Please ask the doctor who prescribed this medicine for you. S/he knows you and your case best. I hope your doctor also talked with you about sleep hygiene and you are employing those suggestions before relying on Ambien (zolpidem) alone. It does have side effects such as activation and sleepwalking in some patients. ...Read more
As long as possible: You should wait at least 12 hours before taking ambien (zolpidem). If the drinks were very strong, you should wait a few more hours. It is not a good idea to mix alcohol with sleeping pills as they can slow or stop your breathing in high doses and cause oversedation or coma. It is better to find other ways to treat insomnia including cognitive behavioral therapy. ...Read more

Can I mix 5mg Ambien (zolpidem) and 50mg trazodone? My Dr added the Ambien (zolpidem) but didn't say how exactly to take the two together
If prescribed that: Way. Ambien (zolpidem) is out of your system by now. As long as you're taking the prescribed dose of Oxycontin and he feel free to go ahead and do so. Also, for future reference, Ambien (zolpidem) as a minimal effect in terms of respiratory suppression so as long as you take the standard recommended adult dose of Ambien (zolpidem) along with the oxycodone I would not worry about it unless you happen to have advanced pulmonary disease. Best wishes. ...Read more

Ambien (zolpidem): Ambien (zolpidem) and Flexeril are both drugs that are likely to sedate you. If you take both you should do it when you plan to be in a safe place. Your response to the drugs taken together may affect your level of awareness. Do not take them together if you plan to drive or use power tools. Do not combine them with alcohol. ...Read more

First, insomnia.: Second, what was the cause of the insomnia. Several medial and psychiatric problems can cause insomnia. If Ambien (zolpidem) masked a medical problem, then it would return and perhaps be more severe. While Ambien (zolpidem) does not usually have a significant effect on daytime anxiety, there is a small possibility of rebound anxiety upon its cessation. If you are having other symptoms, please see your doctor. ...Read more

Prescribed or not?: If you are on prescribed benzodiazepines, your doctor and pharmacist should be the best ones to give you advice, since they know your medical history and all the medications you are on, and I do not. If they are NOT prescribed, you shouldn't be taking them. Valium is very rapidly acting and should be enough to help you sleep without the ambien (zolpidem). If not prescribed, this is abuse. Talk to counselor. ...Read more

And the chances are increased when someone takes other medicines, including pain medicines. You may wish to find an alternative ...Read more

Possibly: If you're using the regular immediate release ambien, (zolpidem) cutting a pill in half and using it is possible. It's not recommended with Ambien (zolpidem) cr (controlled release), though. Controlled release or xr medications have a special coating that allows them to be released over time, in different parts of your GI system. Cutting the pill breaks this coating, and then you no longer have "controlled release.". ...Read more

Unknown: My experience has been that people do not really become resistant to it so much as they become reliant on it. Few people need doses higher than 10mg and typically don't routinely need higher doses of the medication over time. Technically, it should be used in the short term, but practically there are many people on it for longer periods of time (years) - there is little known about long term fx. ...Read more
