Okay for short term...
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
) is an anti-psychotic medication
which has significant sedative properties. Ambien (Zolpidem
) is a non-benzodiazepine
Both can be used for the short term management of insomnia and it is a safe combination. Another advantage is that both medication don't have an addiction potential (unlike many other sedative medication).
Having said that, I would also like to lwt you know that medication are used only in the short term management of insomnia and are usually gradually tapered down after a few weeks. Also, keep in mind that Seroquel can have long term side effects of weight gain and increasing the risk for diabetes
, though this happens usually with larger doses only.
So, it is advisable to take these medication under the supervision of a doctor and be on regular follow-ups.
Wish you good health.
