    Cant Sleep
    NeNe_11 posted:
    Could I take my ambien, nortriptyline & gabapentin all at once before bed, with no other dose throughtout the day?

    nortriptyline is 50mgs
    gabapentin is 1800 or 2700mgs
    and then I will also take 10mg ambien with it.
    The only med I would take in the morning would be propranolol 80mgs long acting.

    Im having a very difficult time sleeping all of a sudden & currently split the gabapentin up 3x's daily with the 3rd dose being at bedtime already & the nortriptyline 2x's daily with the 2nd dose being at bedtime already as well and of course, the ambien too.
    Can anyone give any advice?
