I asked my doc the same question today.

I'm NOT sure about klonopin, I don't take that drug.

My doctor said that taking ambien (zolpidem) together with Ativan (lorazepam) is safe, since it functions on different receptors in the brain. So there shouldn't be a synnergic effect.

Can you take Ambien and Ativan together?

Disclaimer: I am not a pharmacist or medical doctor. Please check with one of these before taking my word for this, just to be safe. This is based on my personal experience and subsequent discussions with my doctor.Sure, you can take them together, as long as you are taking no more than the prescribed doses of each. You probably will not want to, though. Ativan and Ambien bind competitively to the same receptors, with Ativan having a higher affinity.In other words, the Ativan will overpower the Ambien. You will get little to no effect from the Ambien. You might as well be flushing the Ambien down the toilet (though please don't do that, take unwanted drugs to your local pharmacy for safe disposal).Ativan is digested relatively quickly, so if you plan to take Ambien for sleep, you could probably get away with a noon or even afternoon dose of Ativan that day, if you take daytime doses, but you may have to experiment a bit to figure out what works for you.

Can you die taking Ativan?

Can you die from ativan? I am sure you could die from any benzodiazepine drug. But as for ativan studies have shown a rat injected within limits of 1000-1700mg rarely end in fatality. So I am thinking for a 140-260lb human, as much ativan as you can get your hands on probably still isnt enough to die from. But just to be safe do not try and eat as much as you can, because that just, is not smart.

Is it safe to take methadone and Klonopin?

NO, If your driving a car or operating heavy machinery. It is a potent mix if you take too much you won't remember a thing and you may end up saying things you wouldn't have sober (as if you where drunk) *slurfaced YES, Health wise as long as you don't take too much of either medication it shouldn't cause any harm. Often times hospitals will give their (patrons) I mean patients methadone and a lorazepam such as ativan. Klonopin is in the same class as ativan but I would be careful with this mix especially well driving or doing something that could possibly cause death or injury to anyone or anything.
