Taking Ambien (zolpidem) together with Xanax is safe, since it functions on different receptors in the brain. So there shouldn’t be a synergistic effect. soon! Any comments?

    Jun 12, 2008 I know Xanax,Ambien, Seroquel etc will work if I take larger dose. Which one will be safer drug(in terms of buying and using)? Should I mix

    I dont know what the other poster is talking about. Of course its safe to mix some drugs. Doctors do it all the time. Ambien and methadone should not be a problem. I took both together for almost two years (130mg methadone and 10mg Ambien). There could technically be some risk since both drugs depress respiration but for a stable, tolerant methadone patient the risk would be slim. Ambien is actually quite commonly used by methadone patients. I would definitely make sure that you dont take the two drugs too close together though. Take your methadone early in the morning if youre going to take Ambien at night. FYI, if you ever have any questions about drug interactions and cant wait to ask a doctor you can always call any 24 hour pharmacy and ask to speak to the pharmacist.

    If you take Xanax as needed during the day for anxiety and then take Ambien CR at night for sleep you should be fine. to know when the Xanax is at a safe level to add another respiratory depressing agent such as Ambien or Lunesta.

  8. Santana says:

    It is typically okay to use Ambien CR every night–for a certain period of time. in Ambien CR is zolpidem tartrate, a chemical loosely related to benzodiazepines such as Xanax XR and Valium.
