Depends: Only take one Ambien (zolpidem) 10 mg tablet: if prescribed by your doctor who's aware of any other meds you may also take. Talk to prescribing doctor for any other concerns. Ambien (zolpidem) is intended for short-term use only to help insomnia. I hope this helps. Best wishes.

Ambien: That is well over the recommended dose. Did you doctor prescribe this as an off-label dose for you? Please only take your ambien how it was prescribed by your doctor.

Maybe: The usual upper dose for a male is 10 mg. However, everyone is different. 15 mg is too much for some and not enough for another. If you have a concern, consult your prescriber.
