    Can you take Ambien with Xanax for sleep and anxiety?

    I'm taking both right now so I can sleep. Is that okay? Does anyone know if I can also take Gaba to try to ween myself off of the Ambien and Xanax? I know it's a lot, and I'd like to go without them.

    Hi and welcome to the site


    If I'm not mistaken Gaba is use for epilepsy

    The very best thing to do is to ask your physician or your pharmacist, I would not venture in giving you advice on this matter.

    Hi J Webb,


    I sympathize with you. Getting a good night's sleep is such a vital part of feeling healthy, isn't it? But please talk to your doctor or a pharmacist before you combine medications like this, since it's very easy to oversedate yourself. Any time you wean yourself off of a medication like these you should do it under the close supervision of your doctor, because it can be tricky. Good luck to you! Let us know what your doctor advises.
