Sleep Aid Overview

Hypnotic (from Greek Hypnos, sleep) or soporific drugs, commonly known as sleeping pills, are a class of psychoactive drugs whose primary function is to induce sleep[1] and to be used in the treatment of insomnia (sleeplessness), or for surgical anesthesia.[note 1] This group is related to sedatives. Where as the term sedative describes drugs that serve to calm or relieve anxiety, the term hypnotic generally describes drugs whose main purpose is to initiate, su...

Seconal for Insomnia

My physician prescribed every benzo drug imaginable (Ambien, Lunesta, sp?) and they were ineffective for my occasional insomnia, at best. He gave me a prescription for Seconal to use as needed. When I tried to fill it you would have thought the Rx said "Opiates" or "LSD". The younger pharmacists had not a clue as to what it was, and the older ones acted like they had seen a ghost. Anyway, I finally found the medication via my home delivery pharmacy and when I need it, I take it and it works. No wiped out memory, no sleepwalking, so groggy aftermath. Any drug when taken in excess or with other drugs can be dangerous...this includes simple OTC drugs, Tylenol, aspirin etc. This drug has been so vilified. I know that there is another use for the drug (in Oregon), however thi...

Availability of nembutal in India

I'm planning on going to India soon, so I'd be really grateful if anyone has any ideas on this. Such as: can I pick up nembutal in India? - Maybe even over the counter in a shop? ## I will be highly grateful if someone can tell me about the availability of nembutal... And just to mention beforehand, it won't certainly be used for euthanasia. ## Hello Carob, I personally do not have the answer you are looking for but one way of finding out is to contact a foreign embassy for the country you are trying to visit and ask them about the legality of the drug you are looking for. More than likely they will have all of the answers you need or at least have a source that you can turn to in order to get the answers. Here is a link to some useful phone numbers and emails to help you fi...

cyclobenzapr 10 mg side effects

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. ## Why can't I control my need to urinate while taking this medicine? I feel like I have to go all the time. ## My head is hurting so bad and my mouth is very dry ## Hi, I hear your plight, but taking b...

sleepasil side effects

I've been taking sleepasil for quite a while now and have been experiencing several possible side effects that may contributed by the drug. My major concern is what is in the drug. Yes it is BFAD approved but i cannot find its make up. Thanks. ## Sleepasil is actually a supplement claimed to help with sleep issues. It contains: Melatonin, Chamomile, Wild JuJube Seed Extract, Valerian Root, Hops, Scullcap, Passion Flower, Calcium and Magnesium. That said, since this is a supplement, side effects are not known, they have not been studied. What exactly have you been experiencing? Have you spoken to your doctor? ## it has melatonin. i heard its bad for eczema, psoriasis. i have skin problems but not yet have done skin biophsis but i know its either psoriasis or eczema. is it safe for me...

little blue oval pill with 44386 on front ## help ## I have reason to believe that a light blue oval pill with the imprint 44 386 is a over the counter Unisom tablet ## Jayson is correct. THe pills marked with a 44 are manufactured by LNK International and they do not make any prescription drugs, only over the counter items. So this is a generic or store brand of Unisom. ## I called LNK International and they stated its 25mg Doxylamine Succinate (common name Unisom) and its over the counter. ## Well, I guess we all agree. Since I work for this site, I subscribe to a professional database that lets me look up pills according to their imprint, that way I can help those seeking medication information or IDs and ensure that they get accurate and up to date information! ## in addition to the...

Seconal and the correct uses

Walgreens in Georgia orders 100 capsules for me every three months. Must be careful with this Rx, however it works better than anything available for insomnia. It is definitely available. Most younger pharmacists have never heard of it and the older pharmacists know it but "haven't had a script in 30 years for Seconal". The new company that purchased rights to produce Seconal (Valliant) has been under fire for hiking the price to sometimes over 4000.00/100 capsules in this EIGHTY year old drug. This is insane. It is used in Oregon and California for assisted suicide and apparently works very well. Regardless, for an insomniac, nothing works better than carefully used Seconal. It has been vilified to the point physicians are scared to prescribe. So silly. ## One should be car...

Small white pill, tiny star imprint (ninja star). Line on re

Found tiny (like gravol but a bit smaller and noticeably thinner) white pill with a star imprint but looks to have tiny circle within the star. Think 4 sided throwing ninja star type lol with tiny circle within. (Not 5 pointed ? but morning star just 4 points) On rear is a line. Found next to round orange centaur pill. I dont know how many mgs the centaur pill is. Which someone else said is like ambien (Xanax). Im not 100% sure. Would appreciate to know the name of each and mg. Please and thanks very much. ## RE: "someone else said is like ambien (Xanax)" First off, I just have to inform you that Ambien and Xanax are NOT the same drug; so whoever told you this pill is Ambien (Xanax) may intentionally be misleading you and I stay as far away from this person as possible. - Ambien...

behavioural disorders from debendox

Can taking debendox result in humans developing behavioural disorders that are cyclic in the way they daughter (35yrs old now) can appear quite normal for weeks at a time then she will exhibit borderline pshchotic behaviour then after a few days she will be OK again. ## This contains Pyridoxine and Doxylamine, it isn't used in the U.S., so I have to admit my information on it is limited. Her symptoms, however, sound similar to those of bipolar disorder. Learn more Bipolar disorder details here. Have you consulted a doctor? ## I took debendox when pregnant with my noiw 33 year old daughter. She has problems emotionally but is very bright. I have friends who also took this drug and their children have the same problems. Its almost like they dont grow up and over react to ma...
