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. Whereas the term sedative describes drugs that serve to calm or relieve anxiety, the term hypnotic generally describes drugs whose main purpose is to initiate, sus...

Ambien 78 E pill

I thought this was manufactured by Aurobindo? So why does my bottle say its manufacturer is North Star? Is there something fishy going on that I don't know about? I will return to the pharmacy tomorrow to see if I got some bunk meds. None of this makes sense. ## Hello, Schooter69! How are you? It is manufactured by Aurobindo, but Northstar is a licensed distributor for them. NDC code: 16714-0621 or 65862-0159 If you click on those NDC codes, you'll see that the first is listed under Northstar, and the other is listed under Aurobindo, but they both list the same tablet. Some pharmacies list the distributor that it was purchased through, and some list the original manufacturer, it depends on their policies. However, it is the markings on the tablet that matter, since they let you ...

Ambien script

Duane Reade filled ambien and xanax with my insuranse then called two days later to tell me to pick up my ambien script. They filled same rx# twice and went through insurance. How could this happen? I picked it up since why not? Will they discover and could it be a problem? ## Dear Blondie, Sorry to hear about your situation. All pharmacies should maintain a record of the prescriptions they fill, so if you only received twice the amount of 1 Rx and not the other, I would encourage you to go back and inform them of the mistake they made. Also have them contact the insurance company to make sure they're on the same page with what happened. And please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that things like this could potentially catch up to you in the form of withdrawals if you...

carb/levo for restless leg syndrome

I've been prescribed to take Carb/Levo for restless leg syndrome. Does anyone have experience using it for this purpose and what were results? ## I don't know how old your question is, but my mother has taken it for at least 10 years with no side effects. It provides her great relief. Once in awhile it won't be effective enough, but she gets by on those nights. ## I've been taking carb/levo for restless leg syndrome for a couple years. I started taking one tablet, 10 mg.- 100 mg and about a year later took 1 1/2 tablets. Now I'm down to 1/2 tablet as the higher dosage created restlessness an hour after I took it ... and lasted an hour before i could relax enuf to go to sleep. The 1/2 tablet seems to work better when taken with melatonin 3 mg... some nites it seems th...

round white pill with NB on one side

what is small round white pill with NB on one side ## It's melatonin, a sleep aid. It's made from all natural turkey extract, I'm a college student so it real helps, there is nothing bad about it it's just really expensive. Most people confuse it for Percocet because of the NB but Percocet has numbers melatonin does not ## I have round white pills with NB on one side and they are a homeopathic migraine medicine. ## @rrrock: What is the homeopathic Migraine medication called?

Very curious as I have Chronic Migraine & would like to try using a good homeopathic med at onset of an attack as a first line before having to take my Rx migraine medications.

Best/Worst Generic Temazepam ?

Which manufacturers (found on your bottle) of Temazepam do you find effective and not effective? Some people will share the color of their pills, but when I call the pharmacies, I ask what manufacturer they are using. Have a script for 22.5, but can have it changed to 15 or 30. Please help. Thank you. ## There is really no way to say that the one from any given manufacturer is better than another, since we are all different, so it can vary from person to person. The only thing you can really do is try the one provided by your pharmacy, and see if it works for you. Temazepam is a benzodiazepine class medication that is often used to treat anxiety, panic disorders, and some cases of insomnia. It carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness...

Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and irritability. Red more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## My doctor prescribes temazepam ( this time I got novel 123) for sleep. Sometimes one 30 mm capsule does not help me get to sleep. How many of these could I take safely to insure I get the expected result.(sleep) I guess the question is "are these drugs fatal if too many are taken at one time." How many are too many"? Thanks ## My husband takes this drug, along with Ambien to sleep....and still doesn't sleep well. I never knew wh...

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.

It contains: Melatonin, Chamomile, Wild JuJube Seed Extract, Valerian Root, Hops, Scullcap, Passion Flower, Calcium and Magnesium.

Torrent Pharmaceutical Zolpidem

I had this 10 mg from torrent and the pharmacy could not supply a refill. I do not like the substitute mfg. How can I get torrent zolpidem? ## Have you tried asking your pharmacy if they can order it in for you? This is a generic for Ambien and the one that a pharmacy carries can change, at any given time, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, when they had to restock their supply. This is how the keep the price as low as possible for customers that don't have insurance. ## Torrent is a Co. from India By local,hell I'd rather be broke n at least know that my $$ was still in Country Semper Fi' ## Recieved RX of 30 tabs Some are Peach-Yellow in color Others are white in color. Isn't that odd? Should they be 2 different colors in the same order? The inmprint on ...

Activas Temazepam 30mg vs others

I recently changed pharmacy's. I usually take the yellow Mylan 30mg Temazepam dose which works fine. The new pharmacy's generic is from Activas. A white capsule with a logo (R with a line through it) and 077 imprinted on it. I do not get the same effect of what I am used to vs the yellow 30mg capsules. has anyone had the same issue? I also seem to have a slight withdrawal during the next day. Has anyone else switched Mfg? ## Although I don't have any personal experience with this medication, I am aware that the major differences in peoples reaction to the drug are largely due to different body chemistry and different inactive ingredients in each brand/generic. Furthermore, the FDA permits generic formulas to vary by as much as 20% from the active ingredients in brand formula...

Temazepam hangover

I have been having sleep issues for some time now. I have taken ambien then lunesta and they no longer work. My doctor gave me a script for 30 mg Temazepam. I took the first one last night. I sleep very well but had a very hard time waking up and have felt groggy since arising about 4 hours ago. Does this hangover side efect go away or is it the norm whenever taking this drug? ## It may sound funny at first, but word for word, this is listed as a normal side effect of Temazepam: "hangover effect (feeling groggy the day after you take temazepam)" Referenced from: However it also mentions that you should let your doctor know if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away. My suggestion would be to continue taki...
