I would not take it without first talking to my cardiologist because it's side effects are those of congestive heart failure and you may not wake up if in need of EMS. There would be no way of telling if your heart failure was worsening or the medication has an adverse effect.

Had Congestive Heart Failure in 2006. Taking Ambien now almost 6 years since it. Didn't effect my heart but havivg horrible side effects such as memory loss, tiredness,breathing problems n more. Getting off it and discussing w/Dr. My cardiologist prescribed it to me but sometimes I wonder about Drs. just giving meds. w/o thinking of interactions w/conditions. Good Luck.
