Mixing Ambien (zolpidem): with trazodone may increase your risk for injury through somnambulism (sleep walking) I suggest you get with the prescribing physician and discuss in detail the risk and benefits of using one, the other or both.

Ambien/Trazodone.: Yes you can. Recommend Trazodone after dinner & Ambien (zolpidem) right before sleep.

MEDICATION: Best to discuss medication with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a second opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM sessions. Fears and anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.
