Ambien/Zoloft

I was taking paxcil, but I'd wake after 4 hours sleep.  I just switched to zoloft.

I also started taking ambien occassionaly.  I'd like to catch up from my paxcil unrest, and plan on taking an ambien.

My doctor says take the zoloft at night.

I have the ambien prescribed by a different doctor then the zoloft, and take it infrequently just to get 1 or 2 nights of decent sleep.  Since two different doctors, and since I am just 1 day into the zoloft, I really don't have a handle on how I should be taking the drugs together.  

Any problems with taking both?

How should I take the zoloft and ambien, or does it matter?

Should I just take them both right before bed?

Zoloft can make some people feel like they are in a daze half the time.  
Your really need to be careful going to two different docs like that as that can cause troubles regarding meds.  You need to make sure at least one doc is getting all the doc reports from the other docs.
