Can you mix Ambien and Klonopin?

Hey all! I'm new so I'm sorry if this topic has already been posted but I am hoping to get some answers soon so I can get some rest tonight. My doctor called me in half a mg of klonopin twice daily and I also have a script for Ambien. I am a hardcore insomniac even with the Ambien most nights.I usually have to take 30 mg to go to sleep. So I was wondering if it is safe to mix maybe 1 mg klonopin with with some Ambien? I also have a lot of anxiety issues. I don't have to be anywhere in the morning so grogginess isn't an issue the next day. The internet really hasn't provided me with any solid answers. I don't have other drugs in my system besides my bipolar meds and some mary jane.I don't have any pot right now or else I would use that for sleep.So what do you think guys? What effect can this potentially have on me? Thanks in advance.<3

switch to seroquil, there's no fighting it, you will gladly get in bed and stay there. Ambien (5mg, 10mg) laughs at me. the vitamin Ashwagandha puts me to sleep for 7 straight hours, then again I just got my first bottle

Is it safe idk I have done it on hundreds of occasions but I have a massive tolerance to benzos and ambien.. ymmv tread safely maybe start with the lowest dose of each and work up from there?

Hmm .. you can get away with what your suggesting but ONLY if you have a crazy tolerance to downers (in general). I've done that combo but at the time I could take 12mg of xanax and you wouldn't even know I'd done it.

To somebody who is new to either drug .. actuall who is anything less than crazy tolerant to both drugs - that combo is just asking for a hardcore visti from the zolpiden walrus .. probably with some risk of it being fatal.

If your tolerances are that bad .. I'd recommend getting a week or two off work and slowly working your dose sizes down. As those types of drugs tend to kindle (each withdrawal is worse) it pays to avoid any cold turkying or rapid dose reduction.

It's not dangerous, in the sense of life-threatening. As long as you don't mix any other GABA agonists (alcohol, mainly) or opioids, there shouldn't be any problem.

Zolpidem and clonazepan are very different though. Although both are GABA agonists Z-drugs (tehcnically not benzos) like zolpidem do work on the same receptors as benzos, they serve different purposes. Zolpidem is very short acting and used exclusively for insomnia, while clonazepam is a very powerful anticonvulsant with a long duration of action prescriped for e.g. epilepsy and anxiety. But yes, clonazepam would help for insomnia too, but I personally wouldn't use it for that purpose.

Have you and your doctor considered other options? Quetiapine, mirtazapine and doxepine are worth considering rather than clonazepam. They are non-addictive and you don't build tolerance to them the same you do with benzos or Z-drugs. I've used mirtazapine for 10+ years and its initial effect is still heavily sedating and puts me to a good sleep. You could also consider adding melatonin.

I was on this mix for years, didn't really find it helpful. Clonazepam tolerance takes something away from zolpidem (ambien) in terms of effect though. I'm immune to most medicine for sleep I think though, need something serious like a knock-out dose of GHB to put reliably to sleep.
