Hi there ,


Welcome to Just answer !


Well, the reason behind your not waking up for work and sleeping over it , is due to the intake of ambien at night which is a sleep aid drug , makes one excessively sleepy / drowsy , so you shall ask your treating doctor to withdraw ambien from the drug regime or reduce its dose , while you may continue on paxil which is good enough to take care of your anxiety..


I hope this helps..


I wish you all the best...
