Hi, I am taking Zyrtec, can I take Ambien (zolpidem) at night? Thank you!

Yes: Zyrtec (cetirizine) has a slight sedating effect for some people but the effect is likely minimal for most people. There is no interaction between the two drugs other than the potentially sedating effect from Zyrtec (cetirizine). ...Read more

I'm on 10 mg ambien, (zolpidem) it's not working, I wake up 2-3 time at night and can't get back to sleeep for a while. Can I take 2 before bed?

Sleep: 10 mg is the max for Ambien, (zolpidem) don't take a second. Go back to whomever prescribed the Ambien, (zolpidem) they might have to change up your medicine. Have you ever tried Melatonin, which is over the counter? That sometimes will help people sleep. ...Read more

Can you take a finergin and Ambien (zolpidem) at the same time?

Can you take a finergin and Ambien (zolpidem) at the same time?

Probably not.: They can both cause drowsiness and psychomotor impairment, so if you have nausea or allergies, then just take the phenergan, (promethazine) b/c it will probably make you sleepy anyway and then you won't need to take the ambien. Ginger is good for nausea as well. ...Read more

"If used at same time(altivan, ambien), sleep depth and duration will increase, maybe dangerously." please explain.?

CNS depression: Michael Jackson is a good illustration of what can happen. He stopped breathing due to central nervous system depression. If you have sleep apnea, it is particularly dangerous. Drowsiness can result in motor vehicle accidents and accidents with heavy equipment. That is also why the combination of alcohol and benzodiapenes can kill. They are both CNS depressants and may lead to apnea. ...Read more

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

Can I take 2 Zyrtec (cetirizine) at the same time?

Yes but why?: You can take 2 Zyrtec (cetirizine) at the same time, but my question to you would be why do you feel the need? If it is for allergic rhinits it may be more helpful to take it once twice a day. If it is for hives/urticaria the dose is sometimes higher. ...Read more

Compare singular and zyrtec (cetirizine) can you give both to a child for the same thing at the same time

Compare singular and zyrtec (cetirizine) can you give both to a child for the same thing at the same time

Yes: Zyrtec is an antihistamine and helps stop the itching and sneezing associated with allergies (to pollens, dust, etc). Singulair (montelukast) is a medication that blocks another type of chemical released from immune cells; it has minimal effect on allergy symptoms, but can be very useful in asthma. You can (and we frequently do) give them at the same time. Talk with your doctor if you still have questions. ...Read more

Very outgoing person, leader, handle multiple projects but extreme anxiety at times when formal presentations req. Why, loraz/ambien bad side?

Very outgoing person, leader, handle multiple projects but extreme anxiety at times when formal presentations req. Why, loraz/ambien bad side?

Well: Both of these medications can lead to tolerance. It can become easy to fall back on them more and more when anxious. There are a series of unhealthy side effects that can occur with Ambien (zolpidem) (like sleep walking, sleep eating & even driving a vehicle while asleep). It is only meant for short term use. Have you looked into cognitive behavioral therapy or other meds? ...Read more

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

What are the most common symptoms and effects when Valium 10mg and Ambien (zolpidem) 10mg are combined for a single time use, and what is the average duration?

What are the most common symptoms and effects when Valium 10mg and Ambien (zolpidem) 10mg are combined for a single time use, and what is the average duration?

Wow: I'd avoid that combination. Valium is relatively short acting. Ambien (zolpidem) should only be taken if you have a window of 8 hours where you expect to be asleep. Have somebody keep an eye on you to make sure you don't get in trouble (respiratory suppression, sleep walking etc). Realize that Ambien (zolpidem) is for occasional use (insomnia). Valium is a skeletal muscle relaxer / sedative. (occasional use mostly) ...Read more

Taking Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec at the same time?

Taking Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec at the same time?

Not necessary: Both Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec are considered new generation antihistamines and have the same effects. If a person accidentally took these at the same time, there is likely no adverse effect, but there is really no need to take both for treatment of symptoms. If symptoms of allergies are not controlled, see an allergist for a better treatment plan. ...Read more
