can you take suboxone and ambien (zolpidem) together just for one night?

Dual diagnosis: I recommend not taking ambien (zolpidem) and suboxone. Withdrawal and insomnia is part of the process of withdrawal. Taking another potentially addictive medication is not recommended. I would only advise it's use under the strict oversight of an addiction specialist during the time of use under a medication of Suboxone which enhances it's effects

Yes, but only 5 mg: Ambien (zolpidem) is safe with suboxone, but the allowable dose for women is now 5 mg.Best wishes.
