Yes: Ambien can show up in hair even after 1 dose. I do not know if your work tests for this specifically, or just sedatives in general.

If I take Ambien & wake up really early (6), is it a sign to get up or drug wearing off? Usually groggy & not ready to get up but hard to fall back.

Also, remember to take Ambien on an empty stomach - as food decreases absorption of the drug. Hope that helps! ...Read more
