Brief Answer:
She can have tramadol or ambien in evening.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
After a corticosteroid injection she can have ambien or tramadol in the evening. Corticosteroid injection is given locally and it does not have a pain killing effect. Any interaction is not likely.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
