Ambien Overview

Zolpidem (originally marketed as Ambien and available worldwide under many brand names)[1] is a sedative primarily used for the treatment of insomnia. It works quickly, usually within 15 minutes, and has a short half-life of two to three hours. Zolpidem has not adequately demonstrated effectiveness in maintaining sleep, unless delivered in a controlled-release (CR) form. However, it is effective in initiating sleep.[2] Its hypnotic effects are similar to those of the benzodiazepine class of d...

Need doctor who will prescribe pain medication in Boardman / Youngstown OH. HELP PLEASE...
10 Replies RSS
I suffer from severe fibromyalgia for years now. It is documented and has been acknowledged by other Drs. I have recently relocated to Youngstown Ohio. I recently visited a doctor to become a patient for my pain and other unrelated issues- high blood pressure, etc. The doctor pretty much asked me to leave the office and refused to even consider treating my other nonpain issues AND told me that no other Dr. would bother to see me either. My only recourse for ANY medical treatment would be to visit a hospital-apparently here I am untouchable. I cannot begin to believe that this is the norm here. Any help, suggestions, clinics, etc is greatly appreciated. I am suffering daily and need someone to help. ## What was his reasoning for dismissing you as a patient and saying no other doctor woul...

peach pill teva 7206 93 compared to ambien 10 mg
1 Reply RSS
How do ambien 10mg pills compare to mirtazapine 15mg? Are they as strong as the ambien? ## You really can't compare the two, since they are in different medication classes. However, the Mirtazapine can be helpful for treating insomnia, depression, and anxiety, according to the FDA. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes. But, the only way to find out if it will help you is by trying it. Have you started taking them, yet?

Ambien/Klonopin for 2+ yrs - help!
2 Replies RSS
Hi all, ive been taking ambien for 2+ years pretty regularly (10mg, sometimes 20), and klonopin pretty regularly for 1.5 years (lower dose). sometimes, i have even had to combine the two to get to sleep. i stopped cold turkey about 10 days ago, and am having a really rough time. sleep is getting a little better each night, but not much. for a few days, i felt like a cloud was lifted and felt amazing. now, im feeling pretty depressed. how long should i expect this to last? ## It could take a month, or more, until your body completely adjusts to no longer having the medication. Even if you don't abuse a medication and only take it as prescribed, your body still becomes used to having it and can develop dependence on that substance. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have tak...

8 Replies RSS
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...
