bright yellow round pill with no imprinth
11 Replies RSS
i ordered ambien from a site i found online. they said they are from usa and fda approved. i received them today. they are supposed to be 10mg ambien. what i received are round, bright yellow pills with no imprint on either side. does anyone know if these are a form of ambien or the generic from ambien? i paid alot for these and im scared now to take them because ive never seen any ambien that look like this. there is no markings or imprints on either side. no score lines. just plain solid round bright yellow pills. could someone please let me know if they have any idea about this. thanks so much. ## If they were FDA approved from the U.S. then they would have some type of imprint. If there is no imprint, then it is going to be somewhat difficult to determine exactly what you received. ...

orange round pill ## do these work and are they intended to help insomnia ## does any gernic international ambien come in a peanu shaped pill that is beige in color no markings or a funny shaped blue pill no markings or a tiny round light pink with 20 imprint? ## Norma, in the U.S. all legal prescription drugs have to have an imprint of some sort on them. This is under Federal Law, they must have markings that allow them to be identified according to drug, manufacturer and dosage. Therefore, in the U.S. if it has no marking, it is NOT a prescription medication!! In rare instances, you will run into foreign drugs with no markings and no way to positively identify them, but in most cases if they have no marking, they are something over the counter. There is a Canadian tablet that is descr...

anything new for persistent insomnia? I've tried sleep apnea clinics, various over the counter drugs..I have RLS so that complicates things. I can sleep with Ambien but would prefer something not addicting. ## Hello, Cynthia! How are you? Have you ever tried Trazodone? It's a type of antidepressant and many doctors have been prescribing it to help people with sleep issues, since drowsiness is one of its predominant side effects. The FDA lists the others as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. It's an idea to ask your doctor about, since only they can help you decide what is safe for you to try. Does anyone else have any suggestions?

Received White Oblong Tablet With Safe Written One Side The Label States It Is Ambien 10mg Never Saw Before
18 Replies RSS
I received what I thought was ambien 10mg. A white oblong tablet with the word SAFE embrossed on one side nothing on the other. I have never seen it this way before. ## There have been several reports of people receiving these pills as Ambien from foreign sources, mainly the Philippines, however, we've been unable to confirm this. It can be difficult, with foreign medications, since they are not as strictly regulated and are not required to log their imprints, like companies that are approved to sell their medications in the U.S. and Canada. Is anyone familiar with this tablet? ## I too have received this "SAFE" imprinted white oblong tablet three times. Twice with the name of Ativan written below the barcode on the labeled bottle and once with Stilnox in that same place. It...

Ambien 10mg still can't sleep

Why is it that I take a 10mg ambient, fall right asleep for about 2 hours then get up on and off throughout the night? ## Hello, Fran! How are you? For some people, the regular release formulation of this medication only helps them to fall asleep, but not stay asleep. However, there is a time released formulation called Ambien CR that is intended to help with that issue, so you may want ask your doctor about trying it. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hallucinations, sleep actions and next day hangover-like effects. Is there anything else I can help with?

I want to make sure that the pills I have for insomnia actually are Ambien and not a placebo. I cannot sleep at all and I am very, very tired. The pills are a white oval with an italicized A on one side and the numbers 6469 on the other. Thanks! ## The tablets with this marking contain 10mgs of Zolpidem, they are a generic for Ambien. Learn more Ambien details here. Are they not working for you? ## The white oblong pills that are marked 6469, that are supposed to be Ambien do not work! They must have changed the ingredients! Lol ## The white oblong ambien that are marked 6469 do not work!

As a pilot what stage of the flight do you take your ambien pill.
Post a Reply
Since getting turned onto ambien I find short layovers now enjoyable since we can now actually sleep. But the debate we have is when to take the pill so it's effective as soon as we slam the hotel door. I find taking my pill on final approach (wheels down) the best time because that gives me about 30 minutes to the hotel when I will be at peak. Others say taxi to gate, or in the hotel van. When are you taking yours?
