Can you take a finergin and Ambien (zolpidem) at the same time?

Probably not.: They can both cause drowsiness and psychomotor impairment, so if you have nausea or allergies, then just take the phenergan, (promethazine) b/c it will probably make you sleepy anyway and then you won't need to take the ambien. Ginger is good for nausea also.
