Yes, Ambien and Laxatives can be taken together, they do not have any adverse reaction together. However, it is not suggested because when taking Ambien a person needs at least 8 hours to sleep, and laxatives can interrupt those hours.

A. The short answer is yes, but with caution. I wouldn't recommend taking Xanax at night along with the Ambien as the drugs will magnify the effects of each other resulting in increased side effects. If you take Xanax as needed during the day for anxiety and then take Ambien CR at night for sleep…

When you snort ambien you fell a quick (mild) high. The rush will make you dizzy and will impair your vision and judgment. It's easiest to crush the pill down into 2 or 3 lines and snort them a few minutes apart. This eases you into the high. To be honest, it's not the most pleasant buzz, you spe…

The shelf life of Ambien will vary depending on how it's stored. A pharmacy may tell you to discard medication after a year. Others say Ambien can last 2.5 years. Some sources say that Ambien can last much longer if stored in an airtight prescription bottle in a cool, dark place.
