Lunesta for 10 years

I've been on lunesta for 10 years straight. I have to take at least half of a 3 mg pill every night or no sleep. If there are any side effects, I am not aware of them. Anyone else been on the pill that long? ## Hello, Mark! How are you? I am glad this medication is working so well for you, without causing side effects.

Any feedback is welcome. ## Mark, Hi, I can speak to more than a handful of clients currently being treated at our facility that developed a tolerance to this benzo like substance which lunesta is categorized as.

white pill nte 10

This is a 10mg sublingual tablet called Edluar - Zolpidem Tartrate. Usually prescribed for people who have difficulty swallowing or absorbing medications in their intestine. ## Hi Jim - I had a few questions. I checked the Edluar NDC page on this site and in both cases, the 10 mg sublingual is reporting a different inscription than nte 10. Is the tablet which you are referring to from outside the United States by chance? And my other question relates to what it is prescribed for - I thought that Edluar (Zolpidem) is indicated for treating insomnia as a sleep aid? To the best of your knowledge have you seen it prescribed off label for gastrointestinal issues? Just trying to get as many details as I can, so I'd appreciate anything else you can share. Thanks! ## It's definitely edl...

noxidem vs dormonoct which is strongest

Noxidem 10mg or Dormonoct 2mg, which is stronger? ## Hello, Lynne! How are you? These are two different classes of medications, so they aren't really comparable. Noxidem contains the active ingredient Zolpidem, which is a sedative hypnotic that's used for the short-term treatment of insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, hallucinations, sleep actions and next-day hangover-like effects. However, Dormonoct, contains the active ingredient Loprazolam, which is a benzodiazepine that's used to treat insomnia. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Which has been recommend for you? ## Hi, I was on Noxidem but have gone over to Dormon...

Insomnia treatment Rozerem

I sufer insomnia. Have taken differents medicines, but after several days I find they don't work. My Dr. gave me some sample of Rozerem, but I don't anything about this medication. ## I accepted this perscription as ambien or its generic zolpidem is for short term use and was no longer effective and I had been on it for a long time. I read the ingredients in rozerem and was disturbed by "black shellac" as the 2nd to last ingredient listed, but took my first pill 30 minutes before bedtime as instructed. I woke in the middle of the night extremely nauseated and eventually returned to sleep, however upon waking in the morning, felt nauseated still. Took hours for the nausea to wear off and spent all yesterday in a sluggish state of being. Did not repeat taking the pill last...

Zopiclone 7.5mg blue without markings

I got zopiclone 7.5mg. They are packaged in strips stating zop 7.5mg. The tabs are round, blue, scored on one side, with no markings. They do work, but i'm a bit concerned as to whether or not they are safe. Can anyone enlighten me on this one? ## If they are Hab pharmaceutical ones from India they are the weakest of any zopiclone and believe me ive tried well over 15 brands! The confusing thing is when you look at their website the tablets are rugby shaped not round an saucer-like? I have a feeling they are not legitimate!!!! ## I brought zopiclone 7,5mg the blue round from India, are these safe and can I cut them down ## Hab zopiclone are fine... Not rugby shaped at all. Mine are round, blue and have a groove on one side. ## I got the same there from india, I been taking them, bec...

no imprint small white round pill

sleep pill (for sure) white, round no imprint on either side. about a cm in diameter ## If there is no imprint, it will be difficult to narrow down what this tablet contains.
