Aurobindo vs Torrent Zolipidem

How does Aurobindo Zolpidem differ from the Torrent Zolpidem? ## It is my personal opinion that Torrent works much better, I've been taking zolpidem for many many years so I consider myself an expert of sorts. When they give me the Aurobindo brand sometimes it doesn't work at all. ## They are just manufactured by different companies. Some people notice a difference, like John said, but most people don't. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Zolpidem as possibly including nausea, dizziness, severe sedation, hallucinations, lucid dreaming, and sleep actions. Ref: Medline Plus Can anyone else chime in with their experiences? ## YES! Made my insomnia so much worse. ## I agree. Aurobindo sucks. It often doesn't cause me to sleep and when I do sleep, even if the Aurobindo...

Zolpidem 10, is this a generic Ambien?

Zolpidem 10 mg what color is the pill green MZ 2 ## Hello, Alexis! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals, they list it as being purple and containing 10mgs of Zolpidem, so yes, it's a generic for Ambien. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hallucinations and sleep actions. Is there anything else I can help with? ## How do you find a pharmacy that still carries Zolpidem from Mylan? My pharmacy switched to Teva and now the pill doesn't work for me. Walmart, walgreens, CVS are all from Teva. ## You could try Jewel Osco but if all the big drugstores have switched, I'd say you're SOOL. Mine are Teva, work fine for me. Insurance usually doesn't pay for anything but stuff from the major drugstores like ...

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...

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.

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!

I filled my prescription for Zopiclone 7.5 mg and received white concave tablets with Z on one side and 7.5 on the other side. On the packaging it says Zopishine / Zopiclone and that it's manufactured by HAB laboratory in India.

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...

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 ...

What Color Is Temazepam 15 Mg

I am prescribed 15mg capsules. I got a refill and the tablets are pink - MFG MYLAN My former rx was white/green MFG GENEVA Are these the same pills? ## Well, it's difficult to confirm what they are, since you didn't provide any markings. There are 15mg Temazepam products manufactured by both companies and it is very common for a pharmacy to switch, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, at the time they had to restock their supply. The 15mg from Mylan should be an orange/pink colored capsule with the markings MYLAN 4010 on each half. Does this match the ones you received? ## Yes it did. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! ## What do they look like in a capsule 750mg inside of the pill ## pink/white are usually 7.5mg. Blue/White are 15mg. It usually states it on the capsule. Ask th...

How to taper off Temazepam completely

Please help; doctor doesn't want me as a patient anymore, reasons are ridiculous and too long to get into, but now she has put me in a jam. I was taking Clonazepam 2mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for anxiety & sleep), & Temazepam 30mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for sleep). I have been on both these drugs for 2 1/2 years & want to get the heck off them. I noticed the last couple months; neither appeared to be helping the anxiety/sleep issues I have had; so basically I just want off both. I have been Clonazepam free for 11 days now. I CANNOT believe how I feel--like I could crawl right out of my skin; anxiety ridden, non stop talking,completely wired,nerves jumping in arms & legs, more and more and on and on. Bad idea to go cold turkey, but did & now out of them. So I have ...

Expired Ambien (or other Z-Drugs)

Hi, anyone tried expired ambien or a drug similar to zolpidem (z-drug), especially if it's been years since it's expiration date, and what was the effect? Is it still as good as it used to be? I have seen studies showing that some drugs practically never expire. One study found 50 year old barbiturates that still had over 100% potency left! Another study looked at ambien for NASA space station, it found that 2 year expired ambien still had about 101% of potency left. If it's true that ambien is similar to barbiturates in this regard, in theory, it should still be near 100% potent even 50 years past it's manufacturing date provided it's stored in optimal conditions. But I would like to hear your experiences about it. ## I have a script that is 3 years old and as I sto...

Dayvigo and back pain

I just started Dayvigo. Had to stop Ambien that I have been on for 30 years due to FDA changes on milligrams for women. I’ve taken Dayvigo with great success and have slept very well for the past 4 nights. But I noticed that my lower back is hurting a lot, actually very painful. I don’t recall doing anything that could have caused this. If anyone has taken Dayvigo have you experienced this? Could it be a side effect? ## I don't see back pain listed as a known side effect, according to FDA reports, however, it has been known to cause some issues involving complex sleep behaviour, so it's possible that you've done something to hurt your back, while sleeping. Other typical side effects may include nausea, sleep paralysis, abnormal dreams, and headache. Ref: Dayvigo ...

In what country is Temazepam by Mylan made?

In what country is Temazepam by Mylan (Mylan 4010) made? I do not like to take anything made in China, because they put poisonous substances in products, or from the Phillipines, because they do not put a full dose in each pill or capsule. For instance, whenever I receive a Z-pack that is not made in USA, it diesn't work. ## Where something is made is not relevant, if it is approved to be provided by a doctor, or pharmacy here in the U.S., then it must meet the same safety and efficacy standards as all others, under FDA regulations. They warn that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability. As to when the Azithromycin doesn't work, it is possible that it was not the correct antibiot...

Temazepam doesn't work for me

Thr VA gave them to me and its like drinking coffee befoe going to bed ## Having abstained from coffee for several hours, and feeling a little tired, I took my first 20mg of temazepam and settled down with a book before attempting to doze off. I am WIDE awake. I found myself tossing and turning, stretching myself, humming various tunes, rolling on the bedroom floor. Is this supposed to be a soporific or an amphetamine by another name? ## If you taken 20mg of temazepam for the first time ever and your wide awake and restless you didn't get your pills from doctor or you have been given the wrong medication by accident. You would be very nicely chilled out and in the land of dreams after a short period. I would definately go straight by to your doctor/pharmicist/dealer and complain ## ...
