Sleep Medications stronger than Melatonin

Does anybody know any prescription strength sleep aids that are stronger than Melatonin? I have been using at least 10 mg Melatonin a night at bedtime for a few years but it isn’t working like it used to. Keep in mind this is when needed and I would talk to my doctor about this once I have a list related towards this. ## I am 89 and have used Ambien, 5 mg. dose for years, with no bad side effects. It gently brings on a sleepy feeling and usually lasts thru the night. A slight hazy feeling in the a.m. lasts for about an hour but that's all. Recommend that dosage. ## Melatonin is an OTC natural brain chemical, it supposed to have a calming effect. It's about as strong as Benadryl, if you know what I mean. There are many different sleep medications available, and some of the ...

safety of melatonin supplement

Sometimes my fiancee and i take a melatonin supplement that we got from Whole Foods in order to help us fall asleep. Personally I find that it works very well - and I feel relatively safe taking it because it is natural and not a "drug" per say... However I am just wondering if anybody else has experience or information about taking melatonin. From what I understand it is already produced naturallly by the body, so i wonder how they are able to synthesize this substance. I don't take it very often, just on days where I have to reset my sleep schedule. Any thoughts?? ## I took some the other night and it still took me awhile to fall asleep. There have been other times when it makes me very relaxed but I think my mind was too active. I don't think it should be taken every ...

White pill no imprint

I found two round white with a bunch of pinkish specks on them. There is no imprint and would like to know what they are. ## We can rule them out as being U.S. approved prescription tablets, since they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. That means they are most likely over the counter products and that leaves it open to many different possibilities. What is your general location? Some products are regional, so that may help to narrow it down. Does anyone else recognize these? I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## I take white round tablet with pink specs, no imprint, that's a 10 mg quick dissolve melatonin, cherry flavored, made by HEB. If it sets out it seems to get more noticeable brigher specks, can barely see the ...

Melatonin neuro side effects

Hi all!! I have a 19 yr old son who needed to sleep. His friends recommended melatonin. He took 5 mgs. About an hour after he took it, he said he woke up feeling bad - - "waves" like he was on the ocean, sweating, felt like "I was dying". He has major depression and stopped taking meds about 2 yrs ago bc they were making him feel worse. I know melatonin works on serotonin levels in some way and was wondering if anyone else had experienced anything similar? He said he was restless all night but every time he woke, he felt like he'd slept for 8 hrs. Idk whether he should ever take another one!! ## That is rather odd, Melatonin supplements usually only cause drowsiness, and occasionally some mild nausea, in people that take it. It is a substance that is naturally presen...

Little round white pill with RP132 on one side and nothing on the back. Trying to see if it's adhd medication. ## "R P" on a pill is often indicative of products made by Rhodes Pharmaceuticals.

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...

Pics Of White Small Round Pill With Line On One Side And Blank The Other

i had some melatonin pills in a bottle someone gave me. they're white, round, and blank. but also in the bottle were smaller thick white and off white colored pills with one side blank and the other just has a line across the center of it. no clue what the pill is. my friend said she doesnt know either. very strange! anybody have any ideas?? ## Hello, Since the pills you have don't have any markings, it most likely is an OTC or foreign medication. U.S. law requires that all prescription drugs have unique letters or numbers (sometimes in addition to a logo of some kind) imprinted on the tablets or capsules so the medication can be identified by manufacturer, substance and dosage. It could also be a different form of melatonin from a different manufacturer. I've seen melatonin...

Can Melatonin Cause A Drug Test To Be Positive For Suboxone

can melatonin or depression medication cause a drug test to be positive for suboxone ## My answer to that question would be no, as the human body produces Melatonin naturally. Supplementing this is strictly used to boost your Melatonin to levels that your body hasn't been producing on its own accord. As far as depression medication goes, it is unlikely; but with some drug tests it seems as though anything is likely to show up no matter what you took. So I wouldn't count it out just yet. Have you asked your doctor about getting re-tested? ## I have taken Melatonin and I am having a false positive on my drug test. This is the second time. I took a prescribed 5ml Valium 2.5 weeks before it the drug test. I do not feel like that is causing the problem. ## This is my first time ever ...

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...

What is the best over the counter drug that can be taken for anxiety and a severe case of nerves???

I am going for my driver's test and i need something that will calm me down as fast as possible and will have a long lasting effect!!! ## It really isn't advisable to take anything that you've never taken, before and then be driving or operating heavy machinery. It can severely slow your reflexes, as well as causing dizziness and drowsiness. Such medications have depressant effects, that is how they work and that is why they all carry warnings similar to what I stated above. DUI laws don't just apply to alcohol, they also apply to medications, or any substance that may impair your ability to drive. Have you considered consulting a doctor? ## Probably melatonin but not more than two or three millagrams it will put you to sleep,its natural and something our body produces a...

melatonin showing up as benzodiazepene in toxicology testing

My toxicology test is showing a benzodiazepene when all I'm taking is Melatonin? I don't get it, you can get melatonin over the counter since it's a natural supplement. ## @SaviorFaire, I find this occurrence to be very unusual considering that melatonin is completely unrelated and would even go so far as question if anyone might've had the opportunity or a reason to try and pollute your sample before the tox report? Given the circumstances it may be a good idea to request a re-evaluation via Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) to achieve what I'd imagine to be the most accurate results. If the GC-MS proves otherwise, then it should be a wake up call to the inefficiency of standard toxicology procedures. Please keep us posted if everything gets straightened ...

white oblong pill with no imprints on either side

We have a bunch of white oblong shaped pills with nothing imprinted on either side of it. We think it is ibuprofen but are just trying to check and make sure. ## Someone gave me a round white pill with no imprint on either side and said it's antibiotics. Is it? ## Good luck and gooodnightttt. I was concerned too until I checked my melatonin bottle. Be smart and keep asking questioms. ## Hello, I hope this message finds you in good health and wonderful weather. In accordance with FDA regulations all controlled medication is required to be identifiable through it's physical features (shape, color, imprint, size etc.) and because the pill you found does not have an imprint it is unlikely to be an ibuprofen. What is more likely is that you have found a vitamin, supplement, dietary p...

Round white pill with no print on either side

I have a white round pill with no printing on either side, what is it? ## If there are no markings, it is going to be difficult to determine exactly what this contains. We can rule it out as being a U.S. prescription medication, because they are all required, by federal law, to have markings to enable their identification, in case of emergency. However, it could be any one of a large number of over the counter items and there is also a chance that it could be a foreign medication. Was it found in the U.S.? ## Definatly melatonin over the counter pills. Get a good night sleep. ## I have a bunch I found in my daughter's backpack and they are Vitamin B12 but they are prescribed by her Dr. And the prescription was filled at Cox's pharmacy. ## I have a small white pill with nothing o...

round white pill nothing on either side

Was prescribed but can't read the label of what it is. Help plz ## What pill is round, white, and no imprints on either side ## A white round pill with no imprints could be anything. However, if you believe that there was an imprint that had gotten rubbed off and you're simply unable to read the label, then I would encourage you to have the pill sent in to be analyzed by a lab and/or to utilize a drug panel kit from a local pharmacy that can at least distinguish the presence of various controlled substances. Something else to keep in mind is that there are numerous over-the-counter supplements such as vitamins, minerals, melatonin, magnesium, etc. which are often just smooth pills with no imprints. Is there a score line on either side by chance?

melatonin false positive

I just came back from my doctor and was discharged for a urine screen that said I was positive for suboxone. I have never in my life taken suboxone. I do take melatontin..xanax..and percocet.

False positive because of Melatonin

I have MS and have been on Norco for 4 years. My dr. said I tested positive for Suboxone. I didn't know what that was. Melatonin is the only new thing in my system. Could this be possible? ## Can melatonin or meclizine cause a false positive for valum or atavan? ## I believe melatonin messes up a drug test. I had one the other day and it was positive for Gabapentin which I did not take. Why would I take gabapentin if I’m on suboxone? I have been reading the internet searching for answers ever since cause this is blowing my mind. The only thing I took in addition to my suboxone was melatonin.

melatonin false positive for methamphetamine

My daughter was given a hair test and it came back positive for methamphetamines. Could the 3 mg melatonin supplement before bed be what's showing up? ## Due to severe crohns have been on methadone 240mls a day, demerol 12 50mg a day and 8 30mg a day codeine, weed 10 joints a day and gravol 50 mg 8 a day all prescribed and have always passed a drug test for 15 yrs. A yr ago I started melatonin and all of a sudden I tested positive for benzos and methamphetamine. I have never ever taken anything that wasn't prescribed because I have had 52 major surgeries including removing my large intestines and 85% of my small and I now have rectal stump syndrome which gives me horrible cramping everyday. I would never take something illegal to jeopardize my pain meds. I have no idea whats hap...
