Sleep MD: as a sleep medicine neurologist, I advise to meet with your sleep specialist and discuss your issue. What are your other medications? Many use CPAP even with deviated septum. Ambien has its side effects, but well tolerated

Based on your reply of others medication, this will make speaking with sleep MD a must.
