Ambien (zolpidem): Ambien (zolpidem) should be taken no longer than a few days in a row. You need to coordinate your care with one MD if you have access to 3 different CNS depressant medications. Respiratory depression can occur. Also all have withdrawal states and can precipitate clinical depression.
