Is it Safe to Mix Amien and Valium?

11/03/2008

Question:

CanĀ I mix Ambien and Valium together?

Answer:

Ambien is the brand name for zolpidem and Valium is the brand of diazepam. These two drugs are compatible and can be taken together. Zolpidem is used as a sleep aid. Diazepam is taken for anxiety and can cause drowsiness as a side effect. Keep this in mind in scheduling the best time to take diazepam.

Talk to your pharmacist if you have additional questions about using zolpidem and diazepam.
