Brief Answer:
Minor interaction, both drugs can be used.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to 'Ask a Doctor' service.

I have read your query and here is my advice.

The interaction between modafinil and zolpidem is listed under "minor interaction".

Modafinil decreases the level of the zolpidem effect.

So, there may be a decrease in zolpidem function, but you still can use it.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards
