Sparkie; Yes it is possible these are 2 different classes of medications and work different. Hope after 10 years the doctor tapered you off of the Ambien before trying this. Or you could get some nasty side effects if you just stopped it. But people have used Doxepin for years and done well for sleep well worth a try. Chuck1957
