As long as possible: You should wait at least 12 hours before taking ambien (zolpidem). If the drinks were very strong, you should wait a few more hours.

Can I mix 5mg Ambien (zolpidem) and 50mg trazodone? My Dr added the Ambien (zolpidem) but didn't say how exactly to take the two together
If prescribed that : Way. Ambien (zolpidem) is out of your system by now. As long as you're taking the prescribed dose of Oxycontin and he feel free to go ahead and do so. Also, for future reference, Ambien (zolpidem) as a minimal effect in terms of respiratory suppression so as long as you take the standard recommended adult dose of Ambien (zolpidem) along with the oxycodone i would not worry about it unless you happen to have advanced pulmonary disease.

First, insomnia.: Second, what was the cause of the insomnia. Several medial and psychiatric problems can cause insomnia. If Ambien (zolpidem) masked a medical problem, then it would return and perhaps be more severe. While Ambien (zolpidem) does not usually have a significant effect on daytime anxiety, there is a small possibility of rebound anxiety upon its cessation. If you are having other symptoms, please see your doctor. ...Read more
Prescribed or not?: If you are on prescribed benzodiazepines, your doctor and pharmacist should be the best ones to give you advice, since they know your medical history and all the medications you are on, and I do not. If they are NOT prescribed, you shouldn't be taking them. Valium is very rapidly acting and should be enough to help you sleep without the ambien (zolpidem). If not prescribed, this is abuse. Talk to counselor. ...Read more
