I have been taking ambien nightly for about 2 years

Patient : I have been taking ambien nightly for about 2 years. For the past few weeks I have noticed that I was having what I thought was acid reflux or indigestion. It almost feels like something is stuck in my throat and my breathing is a little difficult...very hard to explain. I have tried Nexium and other over the counter medications but it doesn't seem to help. Could Ambien possibly be responsible for my symptoms? I also take Pravastatin and Lexapro. Thanks.
