Stopping temazapam cold turkey dangers?

I've been taking 60 mg temazapam for years for sleep. Ran out 4 days ago and refill in 4 days. Am I in any danger? I know doctor won't go for emergency refill as I had one 2 months ago when I lost bottle (I really did). Will any OTC meds help? Thanks ## Hello, Rolf! How are you doing? Have you experienced any issues? Stopping this medication abruptly can create the risk of seizures, so it you need to be very careful not to run out, as warned by the FDA. Other withdrawal effects may possible include nausea, dizziness, chills, diarrhea, anxiety, and insomnia. ## No real issues other that it took a few more glasses of wine and 100 mg benadryl to get to sleep. Face feels a little flushed and tender, oddly. I didn't think 60 mg/ day was that high of an amount anyway. I've got...

Belsomra is available now

Has anyone had success? Did the 10 mg work or was 20 mg necessary? Were there any bad effects? Did it work first night or required build-up? ## Hello, zzzzhunt! How are you? While it has been approved, it was only done so last August, so it's really not been available for a long time, yet and it seems not many people have tried it. The main issue with its approval is that the FDA considers it to be addictive and has only approved it at dosage levels that the company found to be ineffective. Thus, they don't even know if it's going to work for or help anyone, at this time. They do, however, off a free 10 day trial for new patients. Its typical side effects may possibly include daytime sleepiness, acting strangely, sleep walking or other sleep actions. Has anyone taken this, y...

Glutethimide Is The Best Hypnotic

Sadly Glutethimide (Doriden) was discontinued by the last remaining manufacturer Halsey Drug (HD 550 on white round tablet) in late 1992. The DEA practically forced the FDA to make it a schedule ll drug with the ridiculously low quota of six grams. They were the best, especially with codeine ("Hits", "Cibas & codeine "). Yes they were abused but nothing like the opioid abuse epidemic of today. The last countries that used them were Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. Doriden inducted a liver enzyme CYPD26 if I recall correctly, that made the codeine convert to morphine 80 to 90% instead of the usual 10-15%. It was very long lasting and euphoric. Finding any Doriden would be like finding the holy grail.

Glutethimide

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...

Seconal Shortage-2 years, Enough is Enough

Bausch health, as the sole supplier of this 80 year old insomnia CURE, (and 2 year testament of my success 1st hand with 200mgs a night) and the legions of agonizing deaths of terminal ill patients that have chosen physician assisted suicide have now have been suffering AGONIZING end of life treatments in the wake of this shortage.

Seconal, first line treatment and painless/peaceful exit of this world w/ their loved ones from their terminal illness. My insomnia has been barely curtailed minimally with heavy benzos to have bare minimum 4 hours a night.

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 fake fake fake!!!! ## 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...

Lypin 10 zolpidem

Just received my prescription from India. White bar shaped pills labeled JPEE labs. They aren't actually Ambien. They might have trace Ambien in them. They gave me an almost immediate feeling of half being asleep and very active bad dreams all night. I can take a 5 mg Ambien and it makes me fall asleep immediately. I had to take 2 of these labeled 10 mg to get a restless sleep. I'm about 180 pounds. ## Yeah, I just got mine today lypin10 zolpidem. Wondering if you can take them sublingual. ## I recd the same but i havent tried them yet. Do they work for you? Are they safe? ## Tried one last night. Worked fine. I received mine on March 3, 2017 as well. I would be interested if Others had any issues with them but as far as I could tell they seem legitimate. ## Hello. Does Lypin-10...

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 ...

Zolfed 10 (Ambien)

I've been researching for 2 hours. The alleged manufacturer in India doesn't even make this product. And what they're putting in the pills will make you sick. ## @Jd, If you received these from an unlicensed pharmacy then in my opinion it's more than likely a scam product. I notice that some of the internet pharmacies based over in India make up random brand names for otherwise popular medications to maybe throw people off. Zolfed for example sounds like a knock-off name of Zoloft or Zolpidem. Unfortunately with false marketing at hand, there's no way to know for sure what these tablets contain unless you were to have the tablet analyzed by a lab. What was the name of the company you went through? And did you file a complaint with your credit/debit card institution? ...

Sun Zolpidem ER 12.5

For about a year now my Walgreens Pharmacy has only been able to get the Sun brand, and even that is often on back order. Several times I’ve had a bottle that several of the pills just dont work. Has anyone else had this experience? I’ve had other brands that seemed to work better but don’t remember the makers. A friend told me that he has experienced this issue as has his sister, but he didn’t know the maker. Does anyone have a brand that works better than others? ## Simply put, the ER formulations for me never helped much only instant release did and worked very well...much much better than the Extended Release. Ask the Doctor for a low dosage of the Immediate release, if they will do that. It seems the ER formula isnt working for you. I was also taking the 12....

behavioural disorders from debendox

Can taking debendox result in humans developing behavioural disorders that are cyclic in the way they present.my 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...

Zopiclone 10mg

I have just received from Pharmastores zopiclone (10mg) which is blue, oval with one score on one side and what looks like the egyptian eye as a marking. I'm concerned. I notice that this has been mentioned by folk in the past and someone has said they may be from Eva Pharm, Egypt. Has anyone taken them. I'm nervous and would really, really appreciate some advice. ## I have just received the same tabs as you described which are blue,oval with one score on one side and an egyptian eye on the other side. Did you use these tablets and did they work as I am a little bit unsure about them! ## Iv taken them, there the real deal so don't worry and I promise the have the metallic taste and everything ## zopiclone tablets come in in 3.5mg and 7.5 mg, pretty sure it doesn't come i...

Scarcity of Zolpidem Tartrate (generic Ambien)

For many years Qualitest has furnished an excellent generic version of Ambien 10 mg. I have tried various other manufacturers ---Teva, Mylan and they do not work for me. I called Qualitest (now part of Endo and Par Pharma) --- customer service on 2/24/16 and they indicated that they are getting allot of inquiries and stopped producing it in Oct 2015, due to "inability to get certain ingredients." I find this bizarre. It was a great seller. My pharmacy also indicated that there is a posting that several other generic companies are also not shipping this product other than the 2 above. ## Hello, Chuck! How are you? Yes, that is correct, most manufactures have a shortage listed with no known date of availability. Shortages, such as this that say they can't get the relevant ingr...

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...

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...

new insomnia meds

he took last night 60mg restoril only supposed to take 30mg. He also took 20mg zyprexa only supposed to take 5mg, He is also didnt take klonopin since he toook way too much last week and he was having brain zaps ears ringing and in a fog he felt paralyzed he fell down and dizzy. could that be from klonpin withdrawl or too much medications. he also takes 20mgnadolol and 50mg vistaril ## If he isn't taking them as prescribed, then it is difficult to say which one may have caused the symptoms he experienced, it could be due to withdrawal, or suddenly jumping to a higher dose of the others. Why is he taking them like this? He really needs to take them as prescribed, no more, no less. The Klonopin can be very dangerous, if someone is taking too much of it, then suddenly stops.

I have taken zopiclone many times before and they're usually oval white with a z, but I got some recently that are white and round with a BL on it and would like to know if they are a good manufacturer? ## I got some from my pharmacy today never had these b4. ## I got some of the white round (zopiclone) with the BL, I have don't have any history on them, and to night will be taking my second dose of two pills they put me to sleep, I still had that metallic after taste the next morning. I get them filled at my pharmacy and have never had bad experience. ## Same as Benny, anyone had zopiclone white with BL on them? are they a good brand? ## I had to make enquires about small white tablets the had BL on one side and nothing on the other some time ago and was told they were Zopiclon...

Zopiclone white BL are they safe?

My script has been filled with some round 7-5mg zopiclone. I know they're bad, or at least I think they are. They have BL on them. People I know have taken them and say they work, but these guys would drink petrol if it worked. Just wondering if you've heard of them? ## Where did they get these from? Online or from the UK? I just received my latest refill that are round white Zopiclone 7.5 mg with BL on one side. I have taken blue oval zopiclone 7.5 mg in Canada and the white ones did not have any effect? ## The pills you have are zopiclone. They are made by Bristol laboratories. ## Bristol laboratories Zopiclone 7.5 mg (round with BL marked) are no good. ## I had the ones with BL on them and they were white. They did nothing to me compared to the Zs with 7.5 on them. They have ...

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 ...
