Is it Safe to Mix Amien and Valium?
Can I mix Ambien and Valium together?
Ambien is the brand name for zolpidem and Valium is the brand of diazepam. These two drugs are compatible and can be taken together. Zolpidem is used as a sleep aid. Diazepam is taken for anxiety and can cause drowsiness as a side effect. Keep this in mind in scheduling the best time to take diazepam.
Talk to your pharmacist if you have additional questions about using zolpidem and diazepam.
