Can you take halcion (triazolam) and restoril together at the same time?

In brief: Not a good idea

Both are benzodiazepine sleeping pills. Their effects are very similar — Restoril lasts longer — and would add together if taken at the same time. It is considered poor medical practice to take multiple medications that do the same thing: the results are less predictable and more drug interactions can result. Both meds are habit-forming too.

In brief: Halcion (triazolam)

That is a no no. They are both hypnotic medication.
Halcion is short-acting and Restoril is long. It would be like taking tylenol (acetaminophen) with aspirin.
