Ambien: That is well over the recommended dose. Did you doctor prescribe this as an off-label dose for you? Please only take your ambien how it was prescribed by your doctor.

Depends: Only take one Ambien (zolpidem) 10 mg tablet: if prescribed by your doctor who's aware of any other meds you may also take. Talk to prescribing doctor for any other concerns. Ambien (zolpidem) is intended for short-term use only to help insomnia. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
A 24-year-old female asked:

Can you take Suboxone and Ambien (zolpidem) together just for one night?

Dual diagnosis: I recommend not taking ambien (zolpidem) and suboxone. Withdrawal and insomnia is part of the process of withdrawal. Taking another potentially addictive medication is not recommended. I would only advise it's use under the strict oversight of an addiction specialist during the time of use under a medication of Suboxone which enhances it's effects
