That I can combine w ambien safely?
Expert:  Dr. C. Rollins replied 1 year ago.

There are no drug interactions between the medications I suggested that are prescriptions options with ambien. OTC options for sleep are melatonin. You may try 5-htp and St. John's Wart to help as well but not for sleep.

It would be fine to try etodolac

It will not interact with Ambien and is an anti inflammatory that helps with pain
