After two years of taking 10 mg of Ambien, 4 mg klonopin for sleep, and 40 mg. ritalin, I became addicted and ended up a zombie. I went to my doc Since I take Klonopin for sleep, should I switch over to Ambien once I complete my taper if I'm still not sleeping or will this just add another problem? Thanks.
Unfortunay I am not experienced with those types of drugs personally so can't offer advice.

I just want to let you know I'm SHOCKED at how overmedicated you are, and I'm equally shocked at how abruptly your pdoc took you off of Benzos.

It took a trip to the dentist and some dental surgery to discover Lortab was a blessing in relieving RLS - the pain med for my teeth did the trick to help calm my legs and it helped my Xanax 2mg ease me to sleep.I got the nod from my neurologist to continue that regime.And I have no morning hangover.

So what you could do is wait until youve first tried to sleep without anything. Then if you cant sleep get up and take Ambien. Good luck!. What I learned about Ambien is that it works in about 20 minutes. I’ve read and heard to many bad things about that drug. I’m glad youre getting off of Klonopin.

I went back to the doctor and he has now prescribed Abien for me. Should I wait a couple days to start taking it? Is it dangerous to switch from one to another right away. Is this possible in such a short amount of time? The next night I couldn’t sleep, so I took 1mg, and the follwing night I took. Then suddenly on the nineth day I experienced what I believe was rebound insomnia due to withdrawal. 5mg which takes me to today.
-rv. Again, thanks for your time and knowledge.

I've heard from many sources that the best bet is benzo's (valium, klonopin, etc.) not only does it help sleep, but unlike many other sleep aides (ambien, lunesta, blah) it works on the anxiety that's going on, too. the others don't. i would not recommend that tho, if you've ever had a prob with these types of drugs (benzo's.).
