Apparently,,,: Apparently, there are no known contra-indications to doing this. Having said this, each drug has side effects, so if you experience anything like drowsiness, irritability, or decreased libido, you might want to see your doctor for a dose adjustment, especially for Ambien, (zolpidem) as 10 mg might be considered too high a dose now. Best of luck.
