24: It is very dangerous to combine any sedative and alcohol. Ambien (zolpidem) is particularly dangerous. It has a negative side effect of causing you to act out your dreams, and that side effects is more likely to happen if combined with alcohol. If you drink any alcohol, do not use Ambien (zolpidem) until the next alcohol-free night.
