In brief: Yup

Now why would you take a sleeping med; unless you are working swing shift and you and your doctor have agreed on when and how much.

In brief: Possibly


Ambien is a medication to induce sleep.
If you take ambien and try to operate a motor vehicle or undertake any other possibly risky activities while sedated, that could be dangerous.
