Zolpidem (brand names Ambien, Ambien CR, Intermezzo, Stilnox, Stilnoct, Sublinox, Hypnogen, Zonadin, Sanval, Zolsana and Zolfresh) 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 hal...

E on one side and 79 on the other. AMBIEN? I sure hope so;) ## Yes, there is an oval, white tablet with the E on one side and 79 on the opposite that contains 10mgs of Zolpidem, which is the active ingredient in Ambien. Side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, hallucinations and vivid dreaming. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ## A concern was posted regarding E on one side,and 79 the other(Ambien). Was it a true Ambien,I know that it is. My concern is that,this is another pill,that big pharma has exploited. I also have a sleeping problem,and have realized that these particular pills will make one wonder. One n two months they(zolpidem)work,the next you ask did I take sleep meds? Another med that makes me hate the manufacturers. I worked hard for that money,and I ...

Small round yellowish pill imprinted with A1 on one side...no other markings
6 Replies RSS
need help identifying small round yellowish pill imprinted with A1 and nothing else....Please help ## I believe it is the generic for Ambien CR 12.5 mg. It is a sleeping pill (sedative/hypnotic). It is used to treat insomnia. It is not addictive, but if you take this medication for a long period of time your body will depend on it for sleep. I hope that helps. ## The pill that I've found which meets this description, off-white and round contains 1mg of Guanfacine, the active ingredient in Tenex, it has several medical uses, including treating high blood pressure. Side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, headache and diarrhea. Learn more: Are there any other comments or questions? ## As killer b said, it is most likly ambien CR 12.5 generic is refered to as "zolpidem ER" ...

round yellow pill with no imprint on either side. i was told its ambien but i think ive been scammed.
3 Replies RSS
anyone who may know anything about this jplease let me know these people took over 200 dollars and sent me some yellow pills thru the mail that they claim are ambien, from usa, and fda approved. but they arent or they would have markings. i dont know what they are and im scared to take one. i want my money back but ive emailed them fifty times or more and never get a email back. ## Unfortunately, that's one of the hazards of ordering in such a manner, there's really no way of being sure what you'll get. Not long ago there were people posting on here who'd all ordered from one website and they all received the same exact pills, the problem was they'd all ordered different things and the place just sent them all the same pills claiming it was the drug they'd ordere...

MS contin 60 mgs with ambien CR
1 Reply RSS
Can you safely take ambien CR while on MS Contin ER 60 mgs? The ms contin makes me sleepy but I still can't fall asleep. I've been taking ambien cr for over a year. My pain Dr. just switched hydrocodone for MS Contin.. any information on this combination will be appreciated. Thanks ## Hello, Heather! How are you doing? It would be best to double check with your doctor, before combining these medications. They both cause depression of the central nervous system, which may be problematic for some people. This might cause dangerously lowered heart rate, blood pressure and breath rate, which could lead to coma or be fatal. The FDA classifies MS Contin as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsines...

cyclobenzapr 10 mg side effects
1 Reply RSS
Cyclobenzapr (5 mg) was just prescribed for me at bedtime for 5 days. Should I continue taking ambien (10 mg) while taking this? ## Hello, Bush! How are you? What instructions did your doctor provide? It may be best to double check. While there aren't any actual dangerous interactions listed between these two medications, they can both increase sedation, which may be too much for some people, depending on their overall health. The FDA classifies Cyclobenzaprine as a muscle relaxant and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

I was on serequel and stoped. it also caused weight. what drugs help to sleep but gain weight? ## Hello, Bunnt! How are you? You may want to speak to your doctor about trying one of the regular sleep inducing medications, such as Ambien. The FDA classifies it as a sedative hypnotic that's used for the short-term treatment of insomnia. Its typical side effects may possibly include dizziness, dry mouth, hallucinations, sleep actions and next day hangover-like effects. Does anyone else have any ideas?

Ambien Generic White Oblong unmarked
3 Replies RSS
I recently received small, slightly off-white football shaped (like brand-name Xanax), unmarked, yet scored on one side...Allegedly generic Ambien...Anyone know what it really is, or has the same product and knows for sure what it is? ## Was this ordered from a foreign pharmacy/source? If there are no markings, it is going to be difficult to determine exactly what this contains. All legal U.S. manufactured pills have to have unique imprints to enable their identification, but few other countries have such a law in place. It may be Ambien, or any number of other medications, including over the counter products. Is anyone familiar with this tablet? ## Since posting your question have you found out if this was generic ambien? I have recieved the same thing and am concerned as it looks noth...

Ambien vs. Ambien CR
2 Replies RSS
Is Ambien CR (for long term usage) the same as the generic Ambien for short term use? What is the difference, what's in it? I take the teva 74 but have been on it for some years. I tried the CR at one point but I felt was a lesser dosage and it did not work for me at all. ## Hello, Allie! How are you? I'll be happy to clear this up for you. They both contain the same active ingredient, Zolpidem, but in the CR, it is time released, so it is supposed to help someone fall asleep and stay asleep. The possible side effects, as listed by the FDA, are the same, as well and may include nausea, dizziness, sleep actions, memory loss and anxiety. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been using Ambien for the past 10 years....I'm a shift worker and since age 40 my regular s...

Sleeping Pills That Start With A
2 Replies RSS
name of sleeping tablets starting with A ## Hi helen, Ambien is the most common brand name I can think of in this drug category. In clinical trials Ambien has not adequately demonstrated effectiveness in maintaining sleep (unless delivered in a controlled-release form); however, it is effective in initiating sleep. Another brand name is Ativan, which is more geared towards relaxing and relieving anxiety. Is there a specific name you're looking for? ## Sleeping pill dene ke bad kitna der tak eska aser rahata hai......plz tell me
