Expired zolpidem tartrate

How many years will zolpidem tartrate (Ambien 10mg) be effective after its expiration date? ## According to FDA reports, it starts to lose efficacy one year after it is dispensed to you from your pharmacy. However, I recently had a nurse practitioner tell me that the U.S. is the only country that requires expiration dates on medications, I haven't researched to verify this, but I do know that there are quite a few others that don't, such as Mexico, India, Africa, and etc. However, what I can tell you is that they do not become dangerous, once expired. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, sleep actions, hallucinations, and next day hangover-like effects. How old are they? ## Mine are 4,3 & 2 years old. Cleaning out parents ...

zolpidem tartrate 10mg side effects

I take half of a 10 mg of Zolpidem to help me sleep. Lately I have been experiencing crawling and itching of the skin. I have been on Zolpidem for over a year under a doctors care. I can't get a straight answer from my doctor on the side effects and how do I come off of it ## Hello, Hector! How are you? No, those are not listed as known side effects of this medication and it would be very unusual to have them crop up, after you've already been taking it for a year. The common side effects usually include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and visual disturbances. As to coming off it, as sudden withdrawal may cause some rebound effects, like severe insomnia and nervousness, so it is better to slowly taper it. The modern method usually involves starting to skip doses, such as taking it o...

tuinal or seconal

I can't find any seconal or tuinal, I took this medication for many years after getting ulscers from fiorinal so I'm searching to find out where I can get this very old sleeping medication. Because I took Barbiturates for so long noyhing else works. ## I'm trying to find seconnal or tuinal as i was on fiorinal for so long eventually i was put on tuinal, because of alcurs to much asperin in the fiorinal. Barbituates as being such an old drug are hard to come by and nothing else works for getting a good nite sleep. I'm trying to see if the 100mg tuinal are still manufactured and whether I can ask my doctor to prescribe them? ## Have u found a place to fill a prescription yet? I'm still struggling along with EXTREME anxiety and panic attacks at least every other night. ...

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 ...

temazepam caps 10mg

I have received some liquid filled capsules that look fluorescent yellow or very light green. I am promised they are temazepam by Pfizer but I've never ever seen see through capsules. I have a rule where I will not take anything I am not 100% certain of. Can anyone please tell me if there is a see through temazepam gel cap that fits this description ? I've trawled the internet images but the one I find are not see through. I don't want to throw away good stuff but rather that than be a possible fatality. I also have some pink and deep, round and pink tablets that are scored on one side but with no markings. I'm told they are alprazolam 4mg. Apparently they turn blue in liquid. They are at least double or treble the depth of a normal pill. The guy says that are C10 alpraz...

Zopiclone 5mg

What ingredients are in zopiclone and what imprint does it have on zopiclone 5mg tablets? ## "Zopiclone" is the generic name and active ingredient of the medication. So the only things that would be in it are that of fillers and inactive ingredients, which can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. These tablets are sleeping pills (hypnotics) which work by acting on the brain to cause sleepiness. Hope this helps! ## Hi. I just got 5mg zopiclone and have been taking alprazolam for 20 yrs (0.5mg). Is this combination ok? Thank you. ## 5mg Zopiclone sleeping pills should have Tec on one side and 2/30 on the other side. Is this correct? ## i think only a doctor could say if the combination is okay but i have taken a higher dose of alprazolam with zopiclone sometimes 4ml in fact but...

zopiclone 5mg question

My prescription says to take 4 tablets of zopiclone 5mg. Does that sound right to take 4 of them? ## No, that doesn't seem right. The usual maximum dosage is just 7.5mgs and that would be way more at 20mgs. Learn more Zopiclone details here. Have you asked your doctor or pharmacist about it? I'm suspicious that someone made an error. ## You don't get 5mg zopiclone,you get 3.75 orange in colour and 7.5mg usually white. I get 2x 7.5mg nightly and it doesn't have any adverse effects apart from an unpleasant taste in your mouth the next day.. ## 20mg is definitely too high a dose , though i was once prescribed 3 x 7.5mg for a short time but 2 x 7.5mg is the maximum does licensed in the UK now or so my doctor says. i have seen 10mg ones lately but not british ones. i suspect ...

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...

long time user of zolpidem

I'm a long term user of zolpidem. Whenever I forget to take this medicine I have horrible dreams, sweats and a poor night's sleep. With zolpidem I sleep very well.I guess I should continue zolpidem indefinitely as long as my doctor approves. Also, MEDCO is now sending me pale orange zolpidem instead of white. How can I tell it's zolpidem? ## Medco changed zolpidem to a orange pill made by Torrent Pharm.Please call Medco as i have,and tell them this pill sucks.don't work..Apotex used to be what you got,as i did for 15 years.they no longer carry it!!! ## Your body is most likely used to you taking the medication, so you experience some minor withdrawal effects, if you skip a dose. That is normal, and happens with anything we ingest regularly. The FDA lists the typical side...

Never had zopiclone with the letters BL before. Are they genuine? ## Yes, they are from Bristol Laboratories and they are real zopiclone. ## Hi, I have just had 60 zopiclone dispensed by BL. Are they a genuine brand? ## Update - they are FAKE. They don't work and are a waste of money. ## How come I take 4 and nothing happens,they are round tablets and Zopiclone aren't round,I shall be taking this further,action is required,would you like to send me some real ones to try.

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...

seconal death

Person took 100 100mgcapsules of seconal sodium 6hours ago,and is still alive.is this normal? ## Not every overdose is immediately fatal. Even though the person may seem to be alive and fine, you can't see whether or not they've done any organ damage, especially to their liver, which usually takes the brunt of such overdoses. Has the person displayed any symptoms of overdose that the FDA lists, such as dizziness, hypothermia, hemorrhagic blisters and shallow breathing? Have you called emergency services? ## I have cancer this internet site told me by my weight id need 250 pills/ 100mg each Seconal...how do you keep from throwing them up do I need a muscle relaxer also? ## This internet website says I need 250 100mg Seconal pills by my weight for Euthanasia I have cancer...any wa...

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 ...

Seconal for Insomnia

My physician prescribed every benzo drug imaginable (Ambien, Lunesta, sp?) and they were ineffective for my occasional insomnia, at best. He gave me a prescription for Seconal to use as needed. When I tried to fill it you would have thought the Rx said "Opiates" or "LSD". The younger pharmacists had not a clue as to what it was, and the older ones acted like they had seen a ghost. Anyway, I finally found the medication via my home delivery pharmacy and when I need it, I take it and it works. No wiped out memory, no sleepwalking, so groggy aftermath. Any drug when taken in excess or with other drugs can be dangerous...this includes simple OTC drugs, Tylenol, aspirin etc. This drug has been so vilified. I know that there is another use for the drug (in Oregon), however thi...

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 ...

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 ...

Availability Of Tardyl

Does anyone know of the availability of Tardyl? Tardyl was used mostly in Eastern Europe. It is composed of Amobarbital, Glutethimide (Doriden) and Promethazine in a three layered tablet. I believe it was made by Extractum Pharmaceuticals, and is indicated for insomnia. The dosage was 125mg of Amobarbital and Glutethimide (Doriden) and I believe 25 mg of Promethazine, all in one tablet. A little overkill in my opinion, please pardon the pun. ## I am in the US and I know Tardyl was used in Hungary. It's a combination of Glutethimide (Doriden), Amobarbital, and Promethazine. Prescribed for insomnia, it was made in a triple layered tablet. I know that these babies will definitely put you to sleep, and too many you'll be sleeping for good. I believe they were made by Extractum Pharm...

Restoril Why Doesnt It Work

I have had a hard time sleeping as a child. Now that I am 43 it is very bothersome to me. I don't drink or take any drugs besides my thyroid medicine. I have tried Ambiem and lunesta. Neither worked. I am lucky if I get 12 to 14 hours of sleep a week. So now I have been on Restoril 30mg for about a week now and I still can't sleep. I am about to loose it. Why isn't these meds that the doctors say should knock me out, not working. Please I need some advice from people who have severe insomnia? Any advice would be welcome. ## Have you tried any of the natural remedies, such as just taking a Melatonin supplement at night? Learn more Melatonin details here. After having problems with insomnia for years and trying many medications, it's what I've found works best for me. ...

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 effective. Finding any Doriden would be like finding the holy grail. ## Yes, Glutethimide combined with codeine was big in my part of the ...
