Yes: If Ambien (zolpidem) helps you can take it. Trazodone would be another alternative.I would suggest to talk with your. Doctor.

INSOMNIA: First have a physical exam to rule out a physical problem. Please consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy to help you with ZOOM.com sessions. Research indicates with psychotherapy you can change & find better coping mechanisms. Please see a Psychiatrist for medication better for you than Ambien and Valium. You may also qualify for a sleep study.
