Kratom hasn't worked for my insomnia lately so i got some ambien, which i haven't haven't taken in a long time. It used to work very well before i started with kratom, but now I get nothing. or almost nothing. Could the kratom in my system be the cause of this? I know narcotics and benzos overwhelm kratom; have no idea about this. Anyone?

Not sure about that but what about the other methods I have heard you post about. How did any of those go?
Blue lotus?
Kanna?
Kava?

"My last experience" with ambiem was I took some then I forgot I took it and I took some more - Next thing you know I was in the E.R. like a zombie.
And I wasn't asleep!! THe side effects on a lot of these meds are crazy.

But back to my general question. How did any of those work or did you not figure out the right recipe to have it work for you?

Laura that's really scary! Ambien does that to me without the kratom. It puts me in a sleep state but awake.Very unpleasant! I wouldn't mix the 2 too close together. I took my normal meds Lexapro and Lamictal last night with some tylonal cold and sinus and I was out cold turkey. Which was actually nice because any kratom strain keeps me up at night. Regardless when I take it. However though, the kratom allows me to require less sleep but, eventually it catches up to me and I crash. Be careful with the prescription hypnotics and kratom!

Thanks y'all for your help and concern. I haven't needed a chemical solution in along time, an i only asked for a weeks worth because it is addictive. Benzos help but i don't ant to go back there. Ambien is a weird drug but i've never had a problem with strange behavior (not with ambien anyway!) associated with it.

Want to hear a funny story? Good. I saw an ad on tv yesterday about a new insomnia drug that came out last fall; can't recall it's name. I looked it up,of course.It seems this drug is effective at 40 mgs but causes a horrible hangover at that lever and might cause wrecks etc. So they lowered the dose to 20 mgs but at level its ineffective; sudies show that provides 6 extra minutes of sleep a night. They released it anyway!
Its expensive as hell, of course. They made it Schedule 4; it's not mood altering but they put it out so quickly they don't have haven't done enough studies for them to be certain of that.
gotta love the FDA!

I also Overdosed on Ambien about 7 years ago. I forgot that I took one & then kept taking one until I passed out. I didn't fully wake up until the next day. Very Scary Sleep Med. If you take one you should write the time you took Ambien & how much on a Pad in a Place Where you can see it so you won't take anymore Pills. :-?
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can.

I don't know about mixing Kratom & Ambien. I would tread Carefully. Just Remember to write down when you took your last Ambien so you won't Overdose. ;)

How is your sleep hygiene? Are you watching tv or using electronic devices close to bed time? These can make it difficult to fall asleep. A couple of options would be to install a program called flux on your PC. This program adjust the light according to the time of day. If you have an android device and like to use it a night, there is an app called twilight which has a bed reading setting.

How long after burning kratom do you go to bed and how much are you burning? Try burning and then go to bed right away and just lie down and relax but try to stay awake. Soon you should fall asleep at least this technique for me last night when I couldn't fall asleep.

I find kava helps with sleep. It also goes very well with kratom.
