Not advise: Ambien (zolpidem) can be habit forming so not advise that. You need to have your sleep accessed. To decide why you can't sleep. Ask you physician

Not recommended: to mix cyclobenzaprine, a sedating medicine, with a sleep hypnotic. The sedating effects will potentiate (multiply) each other and you would have a hard time functioning during the daytime. Please talk with your pain specialist about using something else not sedating for your fibromyalgia.
