Can I hurt myself or the baby from sleep walking while on ambien (zolpidem)?

Sleep Walking. Yes, you may hurt your baby if you are sleepwalkling and happen to drop the baby or roll over in bed and suffocate the baby.
Yes. Ambien (zolpidem) is a pregnancy category c medication, which means to take during pregnancy only if the benefits out weigh the risks. Only the mother and ob/gyn can make that decision. Precautions need to be taken to protect the sleep walking mother such as locking doors to the outside and padding sharp furniture corners.
