Brief Answer:
can cause excessive drowsiness if taken together, not recommended...

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Yes, Ashwagandha root extract can potentiate effects of benzodiazepines as well as non-benzodiazepines (i.e. Zolpidem). If taken during the same course, they may increase drowsiness, even causes body ache and several other side effects.

So, it's not recommended to take them together.

Hope this answers your query. Take Care.
