You would definitely go to sleep but there would be no need to take the melatonin alongside the Ambien (zolpidem).I am prescribed 10mg Ambien for insomnia and have absolutely never needed to add anything to it to make it stronger or work better b/c it is so potent by itself. Melatonin is a mild and natural sleep-aid whereas Zolpidem is a strong narcotic one.If 5mg isnt giving you the help that you need then I strongly suggest you talk to your Dr about moving to 10mg tablets instead of adding or mixing different sleep-aids or ask him/her if you could take 2 tablets instead of just the one??
