What happens when you shoot up Ambien?

I personally have shot ambi 10s at first, then ramped up to 2-10s. They were the generic kind that are a small circle with an orangish-yellow coating that you need to lick off then it will be white, and ready for crushing in the spoon u could soak it up and do it then, but I always heated the spoon first it turns the liquid clear. Which made it easier in my head to put in my arm. When u do a 10 mg u get this weird sense that your hands are old and belong to something else. And what might be a simple project can go weird quick in head but its all gone in about 5 to 10 min. Hope that helps answer your question j in Seattle

Can you take Ambien with cheratussin ac?

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. I would not rest until I knew she was going to be ok

How long after taking Ambien will it start to work?

Usually it takes very little time, sometimes within 5 minutes but also depends on if you eat or not. Eating something will make it take longer to work. But if you dont eat and you take the ambien make sure you are in bed. If you are not in bed when taking ambien on an empty stomach you will sometimes be very dizzy possibly or like the room is spinning and makes it for an unpleasant trip to the bed. So be in bed already when taking ambien

Can you mix flexeril and Ambien?

You can, with care, as Flexeril (a muscle relaxant) will put you to sleep, and Ambien, as you know IS a sleeping aid. Be careful with this combination. They aren't counterindicated for synergy, but the double whammy of sleeping effect should hit you hard. Don't even think about driving the next day, or operating power equipment either, until you know REALLY WELL how you tolerate these two meds in tandem.

Can you take Ambien and Vicodin together?

  • Yes you can take these 2 but limit your dosage. I take 10mg vicdins 4 xs a day as prescribed and also a 10mg ambien at night for sleeping and have never had a problem. I am prescribed both by my DR. so it limited doses under doctors supervision u can.

  • VICODIN IS A NARCOTIC PAIN reliever, not one of the strongest, but it is a CNS (central nervous system) depressant. As far as the sleeping pill- it makes a difference if it is a barbiturate (Halcion, Chloral hydrate, which are also CNS depressants) OR a hypnotic (Ambien, Rozeram) which are not CNS depressants. You need to be VERY careful if you combine two drugs that are both CNS depressants. You should ask your doctor OR call ANY pharmacy and ask to speak to a pharmacist. Give them the names of the medications and dosages, and they will tell you if there is a problem, (called a DRUG/DRUG INTERACTION). Many times pharmacists have more up to date, accurate information about drugs that CAN be taken together V.S. drugs that can NOT be taken together
  • Ambien is NOT a CNS depressant opiates like vicodin have been know to actually keep people awake.
  • These drugs can be combined under a doctors supervision.
