If a person stops taking femara (letrozole) cold turkey, what are the withdrawal symptoms?

Few: Femara (letrozole) blocks the formation of estrogen. You will therefore start remaking this hormone. You actually will have a decrease in the effects of the Femara (letrozole) which are joint pain, hot flashes, fatigue and generalized dryness. Most of these will disappear and the increased new estrogen will make you feel better.

You may: Going to nothing may cause some withdrawal, but it may be mild and tolerable, and within a week should mostly resolve. Expect fatigue, mild insomnia, loose bowel. Can take some immodium. Lots of fluids if having more symptoms or difficulty talk to your doctor.

Ambien (zolpidem) hangover?: One possible reason for this is the Ambien (zolpidem) is giving you a "hangover" because it is too strong or too high of a dose. Another is that the Ambien (zolpidem) is not doing it but your poor sleep alone is making you feel this way. Best to check with your doctor. Of course, finding the reason for the insomnia is important! if not due to the ambien, (zolpidem) you might benefit from a sleep study.
