I took an Ambien 10mg 3 hours ago can i take vicodin 5/325mg?

Yes if: If you are in bed already, the additional sedative effect from Vicodin won't make much difference. I presume that you are taking these pills because of pain. Be sure that you are alert enough the next morning before you drive or operate a bulldozer. ...Read more

Can you tell me is it bad to take 15-20 mg of Ambien (zolpidem) tonight if i took 50 mg of vicodin yesterday?

Can you tell me is it bad to take 15-20 mg of Ambien (zolpidem) tonight if i took 50 mg of vicodin yesterday?

Yes it would be bad: and the fact that you are asking that online rather than of the prescriber would lead me to believe that either 1) it is NOT prescribed and/or 2) you do not want the prescriber to know how much you are taking. If you had 8 Vicodin or equivalent you are also pushing the tylenol (acetaminophen) to maximum levels you should be taking. The FDA has made 5 mg the recommended dose of Ambien in women;15-20 TOO MUCH. ...Read more

Don't go mixing the two together. Your profile states that you are a young male patient. Be VERY careful with Vicodin use. It is not without short and long term side effects. ...Read more
