Anyone Else Taking Seroquel Plus Ambien For Sleep?

Just wondering if anyone else is taking Ambien and Seroquel for sleep. I do not have any disorders that would require me to take Seroquel for anything other than sleep. Ambien by itself has not been working well lately, and I have not been feeling rested. However, I discovered by combining it with Seroquel that I am actually able to sleep through the night and not wake up numerous times.

Anyone else have any experience with this combination?

not sure on this one...i did take seroquil once by itself and i was screwed up beyond belief. i will say generic ambien seems like junk especially apotex brand. i'm on ambien cr and it dumps on the generic even though supposedly only half of the pill disolves instantly so that would be,hmmm 6.5mg...try that before you start mixing with seroquil if you can afford it

Be careful with Ambien. Even people who don't drink alcohol when they take it can end up "sleepwalking", including driving and stuff like that. Doing things you don't remember. I'm taking Lunesta and it works good for me. The only thing I like better about the Ambien is that I feel it more quickly than I do the Lunesta. That may be because I was drinking alcohol when I was taking Ambien, and in any event, I am adjusting to the difference. Good luck.

My mom is actually taking both, but has been for a few years, works for the most part . She was just given Lexapro and still takes the seroquel and ambian and lorezepam. And is having trouble sleeping sense the lexapro was just introduced.

I find that 50 mg of seroquel on its own is very effective in helping me sleep, with no side effects other than a bit of weight gain (hungry).

Tolerance builds up quickly to Z drugs (Ambien, Lunesta, Imovane etc). You can only take them for a max of 6 months before they are rendered completely useless and a drug holiday is needed.

My doctor prescribed Seroquel for me for a while as a sleep aid. It didn't help -- I still had to take Ambien or something else. Plus, I ended up with some scary and weird side effects from the Seroquel. When that started, I got off it right away.

My depression is better now, but I still have a little trouble gettting to sleep. I've found that Clonopin works great. I've also got some leftover Ativan and Xanax that were originally prescribed for anxiety, but they made me too sleepy. So now I just take one of those if I need help falling asleep.

Ambien worked great for me, but I was afraid of becoming addicted to it.
