Don't know: You could ask your doctor if that is the plan, but I would likely not advise Ambien, (zolpidem) as this could become a drug causing future sleep issues, and you may be best served avoiding all such drugs for the future. Discuss plans in extensive detail, as the suboxone is just a part of your future stabilization.
