insufficiency as well as 6.25 mg of ambien cr. I also take meds for diabetes and hypertension. I have never really been on antidepressants but I was having a hard time recently. The dr recommended pristiq which I have been on four days. No bad side affects yet. I am concerned about the steroids and ambien. Do you see a problem?
