Customer Question

I have serious sleep issues, for which I have been given Ambien. I also have Trigeminal Neuralgia, which after Gamma Knife and other procedures, has come back full force. My Neurologist has finally given me a rescue medicine, Thorazine 50 mgs. Is it safe to take them both tonight?

Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

There is moderate drug interaction between Thorazine (chlorpromazine) and Ambien(zolpidem) causing dizziness,drowsiness,difficulty in concentration.

You should take them with a gap of 6-8 hours.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
May I help you further?
