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

Can I take a Vicodin 16 hours after my last Tramadol dose without there being an interaction between them? My doctor switched me to Vicodin.
Vicodin question: Is it your prescriber's intent for you to discontinue Tramadol and only use Vicodin for breakthrough pain? 16 hour separation between the two medications is fine.

If so, you need to let your oral surgeon know. In any event, only the person administering the anesthesia can authorize the use of sedatives that could adversely affect your care.

Using for longer periods of time or in higher doses can be dangerous and lead to physical dependency, addiction and other problems, including liver problems from the tylenol. ...Read more
