What are the effects of an Ambien overdose?
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 qualities of Ambien. If you are lucky enough to live through an Ambien overdose, you will not remember any of it but you will sure as hell feel it for at least a few days. Do not ever combine Ambien with alcohol or any other "downers." Ambien is so much stronger than most people think.

Thanks for the feedback!
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 accidentiall…y survived.
Sleepyness, loss of motor control, hallucinations.
Most likely the result will be respiratory depression (possibly even death)... in other words you can stop breathing, causing your oxygen level to fall, then your heart …rate to slow, then cardiac arrest!
An overdose of Ambien can lead to serious illness. Different individuals react differently to different medications, so the specific effects require consultation with a medica…l professional. A pharmacist would be an excellent resource for information. See attached link for further information.
Is overdosing on sleeping pills like Lunesta or Ambien a very reliable and effective way to commit suicide?
No. Unlike the sleeping aids of yesteryear, modern sleeping aids are not particularly lethal. In fact, the amount of medication required to reach a lethal dose in 50% of test …subjects (rats, mice, etc.) is staggering.
The prognosis following an overdose of Ambien and Klonopin is good, but the patient may experience some impairment in thinking and judgment.
anything to much of a pill is a overdose. anything over 15mg of ambien is a overdose. taking to much of ambien will make you purge. but can be deadly . Depending on what you …mean by a overdose, what the box sais or how much until you die. 15mg and above are overdoses according to what the box sais. 700 mg/k is the ld50 for rats. for human the ld50 would be 4.2mg.
nothing if you recover and no brain damage occured
Yes, an ambien overdose can kill you.
For most people, Ambien's effects begin about 30 minutes or less after taking it. For that reason, it should be taken no longer than 30 minutes before going to bed because… it can cause loss of coordination and concentration, as well as memory loss.
By taking more than the recommended dose.
yes you can overdose and die on that much. that will kill you.
Reported side effects while taking Ambien include diarrhea, dizziness, dry mouth and obviously drowsiness. Other side effects are allergic reactions and memory problems.
Depends on the size of the dose. Most likely yes it is overdose
Z-type drugs like Ambien, Sonata & Lunesta and benzodiazepines like valium and Xanax are generally far safer in overdose (by themselves) compared to older sedatives like Secon…al, chloral hydrate. When people die of an overdose of Ambien there are usually other drugs present. Case reports of Alcohol, Soma, valium as combinations. People have gone into a coma with as few as 20 10mg pills & died with 90-300 Ambien overdoses can be easily reversed with IV flumazenil.
