In brief: Yes, but...

The answer is yes.
The question is: is it advisable? 1) there is not a drug-drug interaction with Ambien (zolpidem) with any of these, but it is an additive effect. 2) if you are still having sleep problems, there is a possibility that the underlying psych problem is not controlled. You are already on a stiff doze of benzos and 900 mg gabap. At dinner is high. I would favor refining tx of main problem.
