Ambien Overview

Zolpidem, sold as the brand name Ambien among others,[1] is a sedative primarily used for the treatment of trouble sleeping. It usually works 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 drugs. In 2013, the Food and Drug Ad...

Small round yellowish pill imprinted with A1 on one side...no other markings

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" ...

would 400mg of clonazapem and70mg ambien with alcohol be fatal
4 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. ## First I am concerned that you would ask about such incredibly high doses of medication. Ambien should not be taken in more than 10 mg. No GOOD MD wou...

zolfed 10 ambien
5 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? ...

Need doctor who will prescribe pain medication in Boardman / Youngstown OH. HELP PLEASE...
11 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...

Questions about Nitrest 10

Hi. I'm kinda new here but I have a few questions. I just got a box of NITREST 10, (zolpidem/ambien) which apparently are manufactured in India, and I just wanted to know. Do they have the same effects as the zolpidem does here in the USA? Or is it different? Are they weaker? Or are they stronger?

Ambien/Klonopin for 2+ yrs - help!
3 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...
