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...

how long does it take for ambien 10mg to start working
6 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...

white oval pill one score on one side no other numbers
2 Replies RSS
white big as ambien a score on one side...no letter or number on either side ## If there are no markings on it, it is going to be very difficult to narrow down what this is. We can rule it out as being a U.S. prescription medication, since they are all required to have markings to enable their identification. However, it could be something available over the counter or even a foreign medication. Where was it found? ## In a hotel room under the dresser and i also found a few behind the bed. I felt as if it were crack or coke since it has no smell. My other guess was it may be a type of poison for roaches but i've never seen something in this form for that very thick circle shaped pill, chalky like, smooth, no markings, no lines and no numbers on either side. Please help me figure thi...

Has anyone been told from their doctor, to take Oxy ER Time-release10MG, at bedtime as a sleeping aid? For the last ten years, I've had a Neuroendocrine Carcinoid Metastatic Tumor Cancer, and lately having anxiety-panic attacks, with my rare cancer, I can not have any anti-anxiety meds, it floods me with excessive serotonin levels. I also have diabetes, (getting up a few times,waking me, having a hard time going back to sleep!) Pseudo-gout, Diverticulosis, and at 62, Osteoarthritis in neck/shoulder. I can not use Ambien 5 MG. it doesn't work for me, and usually slept less than 3 or 4 hrs on it anyway. (10mg) I also drink cozy chamomile tea about 45 minutes before I think I'm tired enough to sleep, but end up just lying there, (or run to the bathroom, because tea is a diureti...

zolfed 10 ambien
4 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? ...

Ambien Resistance: Not working anymore
3 Replies RSS
I had been taking a generic brand of Ambien nearly every night for 5 years. Due to increased tolerance, I gradually increased the dose from 10mg to 20mg over the past three years. These doses worked for nearly five years. Then suddenly, around the end of May, 20 mg wouldn’t work. I tried 30-40 mg and that was still less effective than 15-20 mg was even one month prior. I stopped taking Ambien altogether in June and I didn’t experience any withdrawal symptoms. The first few nights were difficult to fall asleep, but the adjustment was minimal. I was on a long holiday, so I didn’t have the pressure of getting up early. Some nights I took Benadryl or Melatonin, but I stopped taking them as well. Sleep was not a problem for me. Now I’ve started a new job and I need to...

Need doctor who will prescribe pain medication_Boardman / Youngstown OH. HELP PLEASE...
9 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...

Received White Oblong Tablet With Safe Written One Side The Label States It Is Ambien 10mg Never Saw Before
19 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...
