Can you mix Ativan with Ambien?

Tags: , , 9 Comments

Yes. You can mix Ativan (lorazepam) and Ambien (zolpidem). Although, it is not harmful to take them together, it is dvisable not to, due to the affect and reaction of both. Thanks! Any comments?

    First thing Id like to say is, good for you for getting honest at least on ANSWER you told many people. Being honest with yourself and others is a good starting place. So the meds you are on are Klonopin, Ativan and Ambien. Anything else. ?? Have you ever been on Prozac on any depression that also helps withh OCD. Are you actually aware of what you are trying to escape from?? If you can start dealing with these issues that you are trying to run from, you will find that you will have less of a desire to escape with drug and/or alcohol usage.I am sure you are aware of the fact it is up to you to deal with all the feelings that I know goes with especially with PTSD. You said you spoke to your counselor, but she understand the deep reasons why you started abusing your drugs. I would strongly suggest that you try a Newcomers Narcotic Anom (NA) or AA meeting and talk about what you are going through with the wanting to get high. If you share this desire to get high and start talking to people who are working on staying drug/alcohol free maybe you will see yourself in some of them and then you can start dealing with your feelings in a more appropriate way. Give the meetings a couple of tries, they are free and you have nothing to lose. God Bless Reggie

    It’s fairly obvious that you weren’t prescribed one of the two medications, because your doctor would have told you about interactions, and if so, how much time is needed between your Ativan and Ambien. Unless you’re unable to understand th

    • GtotheB says:

      Clotilde. It is very evident that you are the same person that responded to a similar question on answers dot com. The problem is that you are merely accusing someone of deception and illegal activities…and NOT providing anything useful. A doctor can prescribe lorazepam in January (for example), then prescribe zolpidem in September while the lorazepam Rx is still active. If the person is prescribed to “take as needed”, there is a highly probable chance that they have both in their possession legally and as prescribed without any warnings by a medical professional.

      A legitimate answer to the question is that mixing the two, although not suggested, is accepted by many medical professionals. In lower doses (e.g. <= 1 mg lorazepam and <= 10 mg zolpidem), and assuming no other sedatives (benzodiazepines, opiates, alcohol, etc.) are taken, it should just increase the drowsiness effect. ASK YOUR DOCTOR FOR MEDICAL ADVICE.
