Vomiting would help. You should also inform your local poison control or go to ER. While this dose is not likely to cause serious problem but it is important to observe your blood pressure, pulse and respiration rate. At ER, they will give you a medication called as flumazenil, which will counteract the effect of the Ambien.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.
