I was addicticted to lortabs for 3 yrs. I tried to quit cold turkey several times, but I just couldn't succeed. I finally checked into a methadone clinic in July of 2007. It has kept me away from opiates. I have been going thru some health, financial, and family problems in the past yr and a half that has caused me great depressions. Luckily I have a very supportive hubby. Sometimes I get so down in dumps i buy xanax or valium off street. My dr. Prescribed me celexa back in April, and its ok but I can't sleep. I am on 40mg celexa, 75mg methadone, and dr. just started me on zolpidem tartrate 10 mg. Most of the time when i take it I sleep wonderfully, but when I wake up I am really shaky and nervous. I have weird dreams and sometimes can't tell what's a dream and whats reality. The only couple times I did not feel like that after taking it is the couple times I took a xanax with it. I have taken it 2 wks now. Any suggestions? Thx.

Oh And also will the zolpidem tartrate show positive on a drug screen. It shouldn't matter since I am prescribed this I was just kind of curious
i am on suboxone zopidem and 6mg of xanax a day i think that the nervouses your feeling is simple anxiety could be about anything but my thinking is if you can ask your doctor to perscibe you some xanax or even klonopin you will not feel that way even if its a small dose like a 1mg xanax to take at night for sleep i think would do the trick for ya but im not a doctor just trying to help hope it did.
Hi the weird dreams are natural from ambien, it is a side effect. I take klonopin with mine. I don't have any suggestions to take the dreams away cause its a side effect and taking it with xanax wont matter. Can you sleep without it? Xanax is strong and I would think it would get you to sleep. The shakey and nervous part happens to me too, its when I don't get enough sleep with the ambien in my system. You need at least 7 hrs of straight sleep with taking the ambien. Its a reaction but not a bad one, but I hate when it happens. Have you tried any other sleeping pills thaT Will work for you?
