Ambien (Zolpidem)

Parent Category: Medication and Drugs
Ambien is a brand name for zolpidem. It is a prescription medication used for insomnia.
Ambien is not known to cause heart attacks. The side effects of  Ambien are drowsiness, dizziness, and a drugged feeling. Insomnia,  confusion, and visual problems have been associated with Ambien.
No. My daughter was prescribed Cheratussin. She took it with the Ambien and had extreme phsycodelic events. Her hands were misshapen she saw bugs on the wall, people who weren't there, lights that were not on. She also had trouble breathing. My suggestion would be if you do mix the two, use caution....
Not unless explicitly directed to by a physician. Mixing these two can lead to some terrible unintended side-effects.
  In my experience, one ambien and one beer resulted in 14 hours of lost time. Alcohol and ambien are a bad idea. When I woke up, I felt like I had died and accidentially survived.
if prescribed a certain dose for insomnia yes, but otherwise no, they can do weird stuff, like you could start tripping out, go sleep walking down the road etc. they're a temporary hard hitting fix while you and your DR can sort out a better option
By taking more than the recommended dose.
Yes. Nice and sleepy.
Yes, amoxicillin is an antibiotic and zolpidem (Ambien) is to help you sleep. There are no drug interactions to worry about, so it is okay to take them together.
Yes, it is. A rather potent one, at that.
  Very negative and intense hallucinations, seizures, loss of consciousness, inability to speak clearly, severe loss of coordination, total loss of control of bowel movements and your bladder (that's a nasty one), loss of inhibition, and cardiac arrest and/or asphyxiation from the depressive...
yes to moderation i take 3mg lunesta 10mg ambien every night tolerance as built up over 2 months
(I am not a doctor)  I have been taking 300mgs of Lamictal once a day for 10 years due to a seizure disorder.  In the past year I have been prescribed Ambien to help with sleep.  I noticed no adverse physical effects, but it is quite strong.  If you are taking Lamictal for seizures, you need to...
Consult your local pharmacist. He will know. I promise. Good Luck, Deal Consult your local pharmacist. He will know. I promise. Good Luck, Deal I agree that you should probably be asking a doctor these questions and not random strangers online but if it helps I have been prescribed Concerta and...
I have been on budepropion XL 300mg for several years. Last summer I was having some issues sleeping and my doctor prescribed ambien 10mg. I was on it for about 2 months. (while still on the budepropion) I had no problems. (at least that I am aware of!) based on my doctor prescribing the...
Zolpidem tablet marked "E 79" is a 10 mg. dosage of Zolpidem Tartrate. The pill is manufactured by Aurobindo Phara of India, and is a high quality generic of Ambien.
As per my sleep specialist m.d., yes.
There are no recorded, definite Ambien)zolpidem) fatalities at this time. The LD50 for rats is astronomical, and so much so that extrapolation to humans is questionable. Some anecdotal evidence talks of cases admitted with 4g zolpidem dosages that slept for a few days then recovered. So, in direct...
yes you can overdose and die on that much. that will kill you.
this question is a little odd. r u ok?
Is it possible to test for? yes. Will it show up in a standard drug test? no
Hahahah why would you want to smoke ambien? That's just dumb.
I'm here to say that no it wont....you need more than that
The 10mg Ambien is stronger than the 5mg Ambien.
Ambien is a hypnotic CNS depressant and pristiq is an anti-depressant. While they can be taken together, watch for signs of worsening depression.
You will need a script from the doctor to get ambien at the local  drug store.
only if vet prescribes it, I doubt it, you need a RX to give a dog any type of sedation, you may kill the dog, human drugs cannot be used on pets unless Vet presribes it or gives you the ok to do it, too many med's harm dogs.
Concerta is an amphetamine derivative, which is a stimulant. Ambien is a hypnotic, used for sleep. Sometimes physicians will prescribe Ambien or another sleeping pill to help people sleep if they are on Concerta. You should consult your physician prior to taking any medications especially with...
Ambien is not an amphetamine. Amphetamines are like speed and are usually prescribed only for hyperactivity disorders. Ambien is a sedative, which is prescribed to help people fall and stay asleep.
No. It is very chemically similar. In fact, it is so close to being a benzodiazepine that it has been classified in relation to the benzodiazepines as a, "nonbenzodiazepine." =)
what is benzodiazipam ?   (leaving that in from the person before me)    I'm assuming you mean benzodiazepines, given that's the topic it's in. They're perfectly safe but somewhat synergistic since ambien is a "non-benzodiazepine" drug that works on the same sites in your brain as the...
I'm currently taking gabapentin for relief of the back and leg pain caused by sciatica from two herniated discs. The nights I have a tough time with it I also take zolpidem tartate 5 mg tablets and have noticed no significant negative reaction. That's not to say that someone else would have issues...
Yes, if they are indicated, and provided the person taking them have no known allergies to either drug. Ambien is for sleep and Toradol is an NSAID.
Chronic use (6 months or more of daily use)of Xanax can take as long as 4-6 weeks to completely detox. Recreational use is usually 3-5 days depending on body weight, mg's taken, duration of use, etc. Ambien is a grey area. As far as I know there is no commercially available drug test to determine...
i take serouquel 300mg and ambien 10mg and 1 mg klonapin daily what would be a lethal dode for me at these levels
I take 400mg Seroquel and 10mg Ambien and i have never had any adverse reactions personally.
Ambien ( Zolpidem ) has not adequately demonstrated effectiveness in maintaining sleep; however, it is effective in initiating sleep. Its hypnotic effects are similar to those of the benzodiazepine class of drugs, but it is molecularly distinct from the classical benzodiazepine molecule and is...
Depends on if you are "pill tolerant" or not. if you are used to taking pills (benzos or pain pills on a regular basis), 10mg will do the trick. If you have been taking pills for an extended period of time, maybe 2 10mg AT THE MOST. Be careful :)
because it's a sleeping pill.... when you take it you're supposed to sleep...
Me and my friends would just break them up in half, or you could get crazy and snort them. Or just not do them at all?
It can, but preferably not. Tizanidine works on the cns, not really the muscles themselves. Slight interaction in the brain will probably induce a very lethargic reaction. But, you'll definitely sleep.
Zolpidem is a prescription medication used for the short-term treatment of insomnia, as well as some brain disorders. It will not show positive on a test. If want a test, a doctor can order it since is a different test that most test for drugs.
yes just be ready to move slowly and be relaxed, not high
No. Ambien is the brand name for zolpidem. Neither of these have anything to do with oxycodone. They are 2 different drugs.
I had several episodes of sleep paralysis when I was using Ambien. Woke up, couldn't move, saw things. I stopped the drug and it never happened again.   TreatmentThis is very spiritual phenomenon, and it can be resolved instantly, even though most people are trying to put it in the medical realm...
No. Celexa is part of a group of drugs called SSRI's (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors). It's goal is to increase production of seratonin in the brain therfore stabilizing mood. Trazodone is in a class of medications called serotonin modulators. It works by increasing the amount of serotonin,...
is it o.k. to take ambien with aspirin with caffiene in it?
Some say it does make them gain weight and they find themselves sleep walking or dishes in the sink in the morning
The prognosis following an overdose of Ambien and Klonopin is good, but the patient may experience some impairment in thinking and judgment.
Ambien is NOT a benzodiazepine like some other sleeping medications, such as triazolam (Halcion) and temazepam (Restoril). Ambien is classified as a non-benzodiazepine with other drugs like Lunesta. It is, however, subject to the same prescribing restrictions as benzodiazepines (as a controlled...
Ywa, Yi=ou can even snoret them together! Just know your dosages and be sade!
Ask your Doctor his/her opinion, they know your medical history and  can give you a better, safer answer.    You should never take more than what is prescribed, and never take  prescription medication that is not yours. You could kill yourself  that way.
most people take about one 10mg tabet a night
i believe its ambien for sleeping you can look it up by the markings on the medicine on drugs.com there is a pill identifier on there or just to see side effects etc.
Yeah. You shouldnt. But I have once or twice. Do not do it often
Ambien is a sleep aid medicine. It will have little drug drug interaction with a UTI and anti-infective drug you mentioned.
Since Ambien is prescription, it is illegal to buy, sell or possess without a prescription.
In a general sense, No. However, the interaction between these medications depends on the dosage of both. If you are taking both the lowest dosages of each medication - the interactions will just cause increased drowsiness. However, If you are taking High Dosages of either one, then yes. Flexeril...
Yes, effects include euphoria, sedation, increased appetite, amnesia, analgesia (it's not an analgesic per se, but like related benzodiazepines and alcohol, one may find in high doses that one is immune to pain), and well as aphrodisiac effects.
No. Any physician with a real license to practice medicine (MD or DO) would never prescribe the two together at the same time. There is risk of side-effects that could include stopping your breathing. Follow the directions of each medication and do not mix/overdose on sleeping medications. Not only...
These two medications are not contraindicated when taken together. They bind different receptors and do not have drug-drug interactions. As always, in any particular situation, check with your physician to be sure.
Ambien (zolpidem) does not show up in a common urine drug test. There is a specific test that can be used to detectzolpidem in blood or urine for up to 48 hours after ingestion. This test is very expensive and is highly unlikely to be used in mass drug screening.While Ambien itself will not show up...
after taking 10 mg ambien should you wait to consume alcohol
Yeah, if you want to get high as shrimp and nod to some crazy-ass  schizophrenic dreams.
You will sleep for a long time, possibly forever
No. Temazepam is a member of the class of drugs called benzodiazepines, which generate anxiolytic and sedative effects. Zolpidem is a member of drugs called z-drugs, which behave as sedative hypnotics used as sleep aids. Both are GABA agonists, but interact with GABA receptors differently.
It can be done with a very sharp cutting instrument. =) ...but yes, it will still be effective as a sleeping aide if you're using half. Since this is a very strong medicine and can be addictive, I cut it in half for my wife and also give her one pill of Melatonin 10MG as a side supplement. There is...
The recommended dosage for Ambien is 10mg.  You should talk to your doctor before increasing any medication's recommended dosage.
Yes you can. There are no drug interactions between them. My Doctor has me taking them both.
Nope. Sure doesn't. Not even the fancy-schmancy Gas Chromatography Tests look for Ambien yet. So enjoy.
I have taken Seroquel with Ambien many times. They work well together for those nights I just can't get to sleep.
  i just want to know if it its safe...
No. The most common categorization I have seen is as a "Hypnotic Sleep Aid," or simply a "Hypnotic." It doesn't fall under Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, opiates, or any other one of the standard drug categories. It's actually a non-benzodiazepine. Even though the above is technically correct, it...
NO, zolpidem is the generic name for ambien. classified as a sedative - hypnotic. they act adversely with tramadol, which is a non - narcotic pain reliever.
Well I did it last night I lost track after the 4th pill I woke up thismorning to a empty bottle I've had chest pains all day but I'm alive ill never do this drug again unless I have someone control it fore
Yes. Why not? It can be used for anti anxiety before dental procedure.
ambien is a fast acting sedative used for sleeping. It should not be taken for more than 7 -10 days because you build up a tolerance to it very fast where you will need more and more to get you to sleep. If taking for only 4-5 weeks every day and suddenly stop, you will likely develop physical and...
The recommended dose is 5-10mg at night. An overdose would be anything over that amount or the prescribed amount set by your doctor.
  NO. Unless you are trying to kill yourself. Ambien and alcohol is an extremely dangerous combination and you can ingest a lethal dose before you ever feel the effects of either drug. Death can occur from one Ambien and a couple beers or shots. The depressive quality of Ambien on your...
Only if the same doctor prescribed them all at the same time and it is a current prescription. Report any adverse effects to your Doc immediately.
Yes as long as it is generalanesthetic.
It can, kill you if you take it with other meds!If you need help please always seek someone's help, its never worth it.
Ambien CR should never be crushed. If Ambien CR is crushed, the controlled-release mechanism of the tablet is destroyed and you will get too much zolpidem at one time.
No. Nope, not even close
ambien does not contain opiates. if it did, it would be in a schedule 2 controlled substance list. Ambien is a controlled substance number 4, which means it has a tiney chance of addiction., more like a dependency.
