Ambien Overview

Zolpidem (originally marketed as Ambien and available worldwide under many brand names)[1] is a sedative primarily used for the treatment of insomnia. It is a short-acting nonbenzodiazepine compound of the imidazopyridine class[2] that potentiates GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, by binding to GABAA receptors at the same location as benzodiazepines.[3] It works quickly, usually within 15 minutes, and has a short half-life of two to three hours. Zolpidem has not adequately demonstrated ef...

Ambien Resistance: Not working anymore
Post a Reply
I had been taking a generic brand of Ambien nearly every night for 5 years. Due to increased tolerance, I gradually increased the dose from 10mg to 20mg over the past three years. These doses worked for nearly five years. Then suddenly, around the end of May, 20 mg wouldn’t work. I tried 30-40 mg and that was still less effective than 15-20 mg was even one month prior. I stopped taking Ambien altogether in June and I didn’t experience any withdrawal symptoms. The first few nights were difficult to fall asleep, but the adjustment was minimal. I was on a long holiday, so I didn’t have the pressure of getting up early. Some nights I took Benadryl or Melatonin, but I stopped taking them as well. Sleep was not a problem for me. Now I’ve started a new job and I need to ge

Got DUI in CO; Plead "Not Guilty" to DWAI. 66ng/ml Zolpidem
Post a Reply
Anyone have advice/suggestions? I also take/took Clonazepam, Diazepam (I have chronic neck & thoracic pain (muscle spasm) & more anxiety than the norm. I also take/took Trazedone & Doxepin. I take average doses of all these meds & levels of them not real high in my blood. The real problem is that my blood was drawn at approx. 4 pm. I took meds about 1 am & got about 8 hours sleep before driving. As a woman, I probably metabolize meds slower than men, but the Prosecution's Toxicologist claims I must have taken zolpidem in the afternoon - which I certainly did not. I don't take zolpidem regularly. Just as needed & every so often. My Dr. suggests changing meds (doses) and (perhaps types of meds) to prevent tolerance. I take other meds every night & the o...

how long does it take for ambien 10mg to start working
4 Replies RSS
Just wanted a answer to how long ambien starts to work, for the insomnia. And how long does, it help for ## Ambien starts to work within minutes of taking it, which is why the monograph instructs you to take it right when you are laying down to sleep and not any earlier. Learn more Ambien details here. As to how long it helps for, the regular release really isn't intended to help you stay asleep, it's meant for those that have trouble falling asleep. If you have trouble staying asleep, there is a controlled release formulation that you can ask your doctor about. Side effects may include nausea, drowsiness, hallucinations and next day hangover like effects. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My pain doctor just told me he wanted me off of Klonopin or he would reduce my pa...

Is a prescription required for this medicine? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry, but you forgot to mention which medication you were asking about. Can you please post back and clarify? Most sedative hypnotics, such as Ambien and Lunesta do require a prescription, due to the risk of problematic side effects, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hallucinations and sleep actions. They also sometimes risk being habit forming.

would 400mg of clonazapem and70mg ambien with alcohol be fatal
3 Replies RSS
Is this a fatal combination?If i started drinking heavily and the injested this amount, would it be deadly? ## Hi Savanagh, yes, this combination of drugs and alcohol can be deadly. Are you depressed and having problems? Nothing and no one is worth taking your life. Please, talk with your doctor about what's going on in your life and how you feel. A medical professional can help you with your problems. ## Ingesting that much clonazepam and Ambien is just suicide. Drinking alcohol with a benzodiazepine will result in death. You will most likely go into respiratory arrest then cardiac arrest. ## It would be fatal even without alcohol.
