Ambien (zolpidem) van at times have a side effect causing exhaustion or lethargy and this is the only possibility I ca think of with the current information at hand. But an elaborate blood panel should usually be conducted in such situations to rule out other common causes like nutrient deficiencies, anemia, hypoglycemia, etc.

Best wishes.
