Hello, Thank you for asking your query at DoctorSpring.

Using clonazepam together with zolpidem(ambient) may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. That is the reason its very important to consult your doctor when taking medications like these.

You can continue your treatment for essential tremors, avoid making the mistake of taking ambient again.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask follow-up questions.
