Since ambien is a z-drug or "pseudo-benzo", it needs to be treated as a benzo and an appropriate withdrawl schedule may be needed, including substition with a slower acting benzo like valium...see Ashton's Manual for benziodiazepine withdrawal (it has slow withdrawal schedules to the day and mg you could follow). Just an idea...i'm sure your doc would be familiar with it. Heres the link (chapter II covers slow withdrawal after prolonged use):
