Ambien alone should be enough for you to fall a sleep. Xanax is much more potent and has much more difficult withdrawal profile. Xanax is not the best choice to use for the sole purpose of helping you go to sleep. Do you suffer from other conditions besides insomnia ? If not, have you done some analyses with a specialist looking into what is the cause for your insomnia. Xanax is not a drug to be on unless You absolutely have to as stopping Xanax abruptly can cause serious withdrawals and even death.
I take 1mg xanax 3 times a day & xanax has never helped with my insomnia. I am now taking 5mg Ambien mixed with my 1mg xanax & 350mg soma & can't sleep more than 2 hours at a time. literally maybe 4 hours an entire night. ive been on my xanax & soma for 5+ years & now just starting Ambien after a bunch of other prescribed sleep aides, I find no harm in it what so ever if you've accumulated a tolerance for benzo's. but personally I need my Dr too up my Ambien dosage because on the second night I tried taking 2 Ambien, and still, only 2 hours of sleep. pretty sure I need extended release Ambien.
