Ambien and heroin

My friend was wondering if it is safe to take ambien after smoking heroin. He smoked .2ish of a gram over a few hours and would like to go to sleep now. He has to be up early tomorrow and needs a full nights rest but would like to wake up in the morning. Thanks.

Re: Ambien and heroin

I have heard of heroin being cut with ambien (zolpidem) commonly, or what appeared and felt like ambien at least, and it seems to intensify the nod. I don't see any reason this shouldn't be safe (besides the downers + downers combination) if you use a small theraputic dose and not a recreational one, eg. 1 pill. Though after researching I have seen a few deaths related to the combination of heroin and benzodiazapenes (which are extremely similar to z-drugs such as zopiclone, they affect the same receptors in the brain), this was most likely using higher doses of either or both drug, it is up to you after knowing this what to do. But that is not alot of heroin, I think taking a small dose of ambien would be alright, just be aware and stay safe.

Re: Ambien and heroin

Heroin and zolpidem (ambien) are both CNS depressants. Ideally, they should not be taken together.

Is it really that hard for you to sleep though, after smoking heroin? Swim has found heroin to be extremely helpful with his insomnia. But honestly, swim doesn't think that one or two ambien (10-20mg) will cause much of a problem with your low dose of heroin. Do not take swim's opinion to be a smart or responsible one though....you really shouldn't take ambien after using heroin. Thats just common sense (something this addict lacks)

Re: Ambien and heroin

How much ambien do you plan on taking? I used to use heroin (IV) and then take ambien or sometimes vise versa and I never suffered any noticeable side effects. Of course, everyone is different and can react differently, so on and so forth but since you only smoked a little bit a and a few hours ago at that my guess is that you'd be fine.

I also agree with Nogys post above. I don't see how ambien will put you to bed if heroin didn't.

Re: Ambien and heroin

He just can't fall asleep at the moment and has to wake up early. Heroin usually does the trick but he just wants it to come a little sooner than it will naturally. He is just planning on taking one 10mg. Thanks for the advice, its off to dreamland.
