What happens if I miss a dose of Ambien CR?

If you miss a dose of Ambien CR (zolpidem tartrate extended-release), do not double up on your next dose. You may only be taking it as needed to sleep, so just wait to take the next dose when you are going to have a full night’s sleep ahead. If you forget to take it before bed and then wake up in the middle of the night, do not take it then unless you have seven more hours to sleep.
