I accidentally took 3 of my ambien due to forgetting I had already taken it the first time so I went back and took two and then an hour later took 5mg of oxycodone for a broken tailbone. I have high anxiety and am freaking myself out although the pharmacy said I will just be drowsy which I am not I have been on ambien forever and have a tolerance to it so taking 3 doesn't worry me but adding the oxycodone to only an hour after has me quite scared. Just wanted some other opinions on it. Thanks.
Hi Robin, if taking 3 ambien doesn't concern you, please talk with your prescribing doctor about this high tolerance. As you experienced already, it can mess with your memory and cause you to do things that may be very harmful. I have read many disturbing stories about what some people do under the influence of ambien. Please talk with your doc about maybe switching to another sleep aid so your tolerances return to normal. It just isn't safe to take so many.
its enough to scare anyone who doesn't do this on a regular basis since you took 3 ambien and then oxycodine (you said about an hours difference) you probably will be very sleepy, be careful getting out of bed and catching a fall due to dizziness over lots of medication or the combination on board I don't think it will do more than make you really sleepy if you are highly tolerant to these it might surprise you, if however you still feel concerns call the Emergency room just explain what happened and I am sure they will tell you you are safe but please please be safe and if you have any questions or problems contact the doctor I care... caringsonbj if you note any problems you don't usually notice talk with the doctor just to be on the safe side
