Ambien Overview

Zolpidem (originally marketed as Ambien and available worldwide under many brand names[1]) is a prescription medication used for the treatment of insomnia and some brain disorders.[2] It is a short-acting nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic of the imidazopyridine class[3] that potentiates GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, by binding to GABAA receptors at the same location as benzodiazepines.[4] It works quickly, usually within 15 minutes, and has a short half-life of two to three hours. Zolpidem h...

how long does it take for ambien 10mg to start working

Just wanted a answer to how long ambien starts to work, for the insomnia. And how long does, it help for ## Ambien starts to work within minutes of taking it, which is why the monograph instructs you to take it right when you are laying down to sleep and not any earlier. Learn more Ambien details here. As to how long it helps for, the regular release really isn't intended to help you stay asleep, it's meant for those that have trouble falling asleep. If you have trouble staying asleep, there is a controlled release formulation that you can ask your doctor about. Side effects may include nausea, drowsiness, hallucinations and next day hangover like effects. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My pain doctor just told me he wanted me off of Klonopin or he would reduce my pa...

Is a prescription required for this medicine? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? I'm sorry, but you forgot to mention which medication you were asking about. Can you please post back and clarify? Most sedative hypnotics, such as Ambien and Lunesta do require a prescription, due to the risk of problematic side effects, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hallucinations and sleep actions. They also sometimes risk being habit forming.

would 400mg of clonazapem and70mg ambien with alcohol be fatal
3 Replies RSS
Is this a fatal combination?If i started drinking heavily and the injested this amount, would it be deadly? ## Hi Savanagh, yes, this combination of drugs and alcohol can be deadly. Are you depressed and having problems? Nothing and no one is worth taking your life. Please, talk with your doctor about what's going on in your life and how you feel. A medical professional can help you with your problems. ## Ingesting that much clonazepam and Ambien is just suicide. Drinking alcohol with a benzodiazepine will result in death. You will most likely go into respiratory arrest then cardiac arrest. ## It would be fatal even without alcohol.

zolfed 10 ambien
2 Replies RSS
I've been researching for 2 hours. The alleged manufacturer in India doesn't even make this product. And what they're putting in the pills will make you sick. ## @Jd, If you received these from an unlicensed pharmacy then in my opinion it's more than likely a scam product. I notice that some of the internet pharmacies based over in India make up random brand names for otherwise popular medications to maybe throw people off. Zolfed for example sounds like a knock-off name of Zoloft or Zolpidem. Unfortunately with false marketing at hand, there's no way to know for sure what these tablets contain unless you were to have the tablet analyzed by a lab. What was the name of the company you went through? And did you file a complaint with your credit/debit card institution? ...

can you ask a pharmacy for non-generic ambien
2 Replies RSS
My pharmacy gives me a different generic ambien almost every month. Can I ask for non-generic since I am paying without insurance? All of them work slightly different. Some hardly work at all. ## Hello, Jerry! How are you? Yes, you can do that. You can also ask your doctor to write the prescription as 'brand medically necessary' or whatever the equivalent is in your state. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, funny taste in mouth, sleep actions, hallucinations and next day hangover-like effects. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I wouldn't mind a generic ambein if i knew one that worked consistently. I read different opinions on all the generics. So would name brand be inconsistent also? I can n...

sleep aid 7.5 mg ## I can't find anything in english about this drug. any suggestions? ## I can't either. You may want to try asking a pharmacist if they have any information on it. ## Does anyone know where to get this sleep aid. It is the ONLY thing that works for me. I have been buying it in Mexico under the brand name Imovane 7.5mg. ## I also got Zopiclona Genfar in Costa Rica when I realized I forgot my sleep aids. They wouldn't give me Ambien, but gave me this. As soon as I took it I knew it was Lunesta because I had once tried that and got a bad taste in my mouth (although it defintiely works). After much research when I got home (everything was in Spanish), I finally found that is in fact Lunesta (funny that they gave me this without a Rx but not Ambien which is much...

BF asks questions while asleep
1 Reply RSS
My BF of 11 years asks me questions about my EX while asleep on Trazodone, Ambien and Valium and says "it is the truth coming out", he has done this several times and every time he does it he doesn't like the answers. Are these combined with a truth serum or am I just in a fog and not really understanding the questions and just giving random answers? Oh Yah, I don't remember any thing the next morning and am given the worst treatment ever (and I am disabled, so I need his help, especially with our 8 yr. old). Anyone gone through this or have an answer? ## No, no truth serum or anything in them. However, if this occurs frequently, it could mean that you're overmedicated for sleeping, that's a lot to take each night. The FDA also warns that the Valium carries the r...
