Brief Answer:
can be used, minor interaction

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There is a risk of interaction of these two medications but it is minor. These agents both increase the effects of the other (Trazadone can increase the effect of the ambien and vice versa).

There would be additional sedation with the use of both of these medications. Additional since they increase each others effects, there may also be dizziness, difficulty concentrating.
These effects may or may not occur

Summary: minor interaction, you can use them together, monitor your level of drowsiness.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
