Can You Take Ambien And Hydrocodone Together At Bedtime?

Hi there. I was wondering it you can take Ambien and hydrocodone together at bedtime. Thanks.

Answer

I would not recommend it! According to the drug interaction checker, anyone taking these two drugs together should be monitored closely.

The danger is that your central nervous system and/or your respiratory system could become too depressed.   In other words, you could quit breathing in your sleep or your heart rate could slow down too much and you could go into a coma.   Unless your doctor specifically advises you to take Ambien and hydrocodone together, I would definitely not recommend it.
