Brief Answer: Yes it is safe Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Ambien and quetiapine 100mg twken together are safe and there is nothing to worry about the combination. However I feel there is no requirement to take both of them. If you are getting good sleep by ambien then there is no use to take quetiapine. Quetiapine can always be added if ambien is not effective. Moreover the dose of quetiapine for insmnia ranges around 50mg and 100mg may not be required. You may discuss these issues with your psychiatrist but as such the combination is safe tk be taken. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
