Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I would explain that Ambien does not interact with Xarelto or any betablockers.

So, it is safe to take it concomitantly with your current therapy.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Wishing good health,

Dr. Iliri
