I've been on prozac for almost 3 months. I started taking ambien to help me sleep. Ive been feeling very nauseous. Im also have a lot of stress I have a 16 year old boy who has a drinking problem so that doesn't help w the anxiety. I dont know if the ambien side affect is causing the nausea.

    Hi Clay,

    I rake Prozac for anxiety (beginning week 5). I also take Ambien every night for chronic insomnia. Did the nausea start only when you started the Ambien? Or maybe it is a blip from the Prozac?

    I’ve taken Ambien for maybe 5 years. I don’t recall any side effects when I started. However, doing a quick lookup on the Internet, nausea is shown as a common side effect.... everything has side effects. Maybe there is a different sleep drug that might be better for you?

    Sounds like things are kind of rough right now - do your best to take care of yourself.

      I also had the nausea with the prozac. I did notice more of the nausea w the ambien. It could also be the anxiety by all the stress.
