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 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, sustain, or lengthen sleep. Because th...

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.

Zolpidem Generic

ALL CVS pharmacies just changed the zolpidem from MYLAN manufacturer (out of PA) to TORRENT in India. Because generics can certain behave differently, I am nervous about taking the (10 mg) oblong peach Torrent brand one after reading some things online. I also don't like the idea of CVS using from out of the country manufacturer which HAS to be due to a better price because MYLAN brand is still very readily available. Any comments? ## The country doesn't matter, as long as the manufacturer has approval from the FDA for their products to be sold in the U.S., CVS or any other pharmacy, can stock their products. There can be some differences in generic medications, however, this usually doesn't affect the greater number of the people that take it. If you are aware of how it nor...

Ambien Zolpidem 10mg - round orange tablet from Mexico

Info needed. Does anyone know if Ambien (Zolpidem) 10 mg from Mexico comes in a small 1/4" round, lightish orange color tablet (white inside). Scorned on one side and unmarked on the other side? Does anyone know if there is a Mexican pill identifier website? How can I tell if they are real or is Zolpidem 10mg even made like that? Is anyone familiar with these or have taken them ok? ## Unfortunately, when you order from a foreign sources, this is one of the hazards. Other than paying to have it lab tested, there is no way to be certain what you have received. There is no website to identify them, because their products are not regulated like their U.S. counterparts and they are not required to log their imprints. Is anyone familiar with these? ## I got this pill from a US phamacy. No...

Becalm 0.5mg

If one day, we want to sleep calmly, but we are unable to sleep, can we take becalm 0.5 for that day to sleep 7 to 8 hrs calmly? ## I have becalm 0.5mg tablet and take it as a sleeping pill. ## Hey guys, I just got xanax/alprazolam from the most easy going and understanding Doc. Its trade name Becalm 0.5mg is made by Leeford healthcare ltd. from india. The doc said to take 1 in the morning but i couldn't wait so as soon as I was comfy at home I took one... And guys I've tried many brands and generic of alprazolam and I have to say that this is by far the best I've ever taken... I usually don't go for xanax cause it's just too mild in my opinion.. I prefer valium with klonopin. But this Becalm is really good. And guys, here in Malaysia one doesn't have many choice...

Depression, Anxiety, Agitation - It's Unbearable

For over 50 years I struggled with this condition. I stuck it out with hard work and faking it. Now that I'm nearly 77, I cant go on anymore, but don't want to traumatize family that I see (not often)! In three years I lost my wife (2015), sister (2016), & both young nieces (2017- 2018). I had supported them all until death basically! I have been on psychotropic prescription drugs for 50 years, presently on three 1mg Xanax and two Effexor 150 mg. It's hell on earth! ## Are those the only medications you are currently on? I could be that you need to try a different medication, or a combination of them. Have you informed your doctor that this current combination just isn't working? You've been through a lot, so it is not surprising that you are feeling this way, yo...

hypnotic sedative for insomnia, brand name is doriden. ## Does anyone know where one could obtain glutethimide or it's brand name Doriden (CIBA Company)? Am in Canada where Doriden was discontinued in late 1980s and I was told Doriden discontinuation was international. Perhaps there is now a generic form containing active ingredient glutethimide available now as I would assume CIBA trademark rights would have expired. As the benzodiazapine replacement meds for Doriden are more addictive and dangerous (especially if mixed with alcohol or other drugs) it sure would be great to be able to go back to Doriden or glutethimide which was more effective and safer. A shame that the public was switched over to benzodiazipines (i.e. lorazapam, diazapam) when a better/safer product was available...

Large yellow/off white gel cap with no markings.

When looking at it vertically, it has an indention running all the way around. It was found in my grandmother's (who was in a retirement home at the time) pill container that seperated her pills into morning noon and night. ## I found a small oval white gel capsule looking exactly as you described - no markings other than an indentation running lenghtwise around the capsule. I'd like to know what it is. ## Off-white oblong liquid-filled gel capsule, vertical indentation running lengthwise, with no markings is Nature's Bounty Melatonin ## Hello, Unfortunately the FDA requires that any regulated medication be identifiable by it's physical appearance (color, shape, imprint, size etc.) and because this pill does not have an imprint it is not likely that it is medication. Thi...
