What markings are on blue zopiclone?

Can you tell me if the dark blue tablet with no markings (just a line on one side) are true zopiclone? ## If they are zop zopiclone (written on the sleeve) they are fine. ## Hi. I've always had zopiclone round white like a bullet with a line going through it. My mate has a little blue one with no marks on it and now these ones i have now are quite big blue tablets with a thin score line going across. the line is broken on one half & the inside is white. I am feeling a bit drowsy now and i will let you all know if they're any good. Good night & god bless everyone, xxx. ## Complete fakes, know that for sure. No identifying number, score line on other. They have to be identifiable. Zop from India was weak but did work, this ZOP is crap ## Hello Jeannette, In the US and the ...

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....

Temazepam refill

Ok, this is messed up. I take 30mg of Temazepam at night. I live in Mississippi, but when I had the prescription filled I was in Tennessee. Therefore, my 5 refills are in Tennessee, and the pharmacist down here in Mississippi said they can't transfer controlled substances. They can transfer the Prozac, but not the Temazepam. I have one prescription of 15mg Temazepam here in Mississippi from months ago because my dosage was increased. If I get that filled and a few days or a week later, go back to Tennessee and get my other prescription for the 30mg Temazepams will I get in trouble? This is bull feces, because Walmart should be able to transfer prescriptions to adjacent states for people who travel some. Ridiculous. ## This is the standard directive from the FDA and DEA. Controlled s...

Lunesta put me in the ER

I'm 36 year old female. I've always had insomnia since childhood. This summer it got to the point I was getting zero sleep. My doctor prescribed 3mg Lunesta every night. She said many of her patients tolerated it very well, so I should have no problem. Within the first five days, I lost my coordination and walked into furniture, making a giant bruise on my leg. I thought it was just a random accident. Then a few days later I got a staph infection in my inner thigh -- first time in my whole life. Dr put me on Keflex. Over the next week, my memory and concentration weakened. I felt like I was lost in fog. Then I got indigestion. I thought it was from the Keflex. The Keflex ended, infection gone (not without leaving a scar), and still the weird symptoms continued to escalate. My en...

zolpidem E79 or m z2...which is better?

I've been takin zolpidem E 79 for a while n works great. But my local pharmer filled my script wit the purple round pill with M Z2 on it. I no they should work but I jus took my 2nd one in bout 2 hrs while I'm writing this. Is it jus me or r the purple ones weaker. Like I said I'm wide awake this sux. ## No, it isn't just you! There can be differences in generic medications. Under the U.S. FDA regulations, generic medications can differ from the name brand, in the amount of the active ingredient, by as much as plus or minus 20%. Additionally, generics only have to measure against the name brand and not against each other, which means that the amount of the active ingredient can differ from one generic to the next. Therefore, the news pill you received may not have as muc...

PLACIDYL 500mg

I have had almost every kind of sedative-hypnotics prescribed to me (Including Doriden, Noludar, Seconal, and Placidyl). Placidyl has a funny, fruit-like odor and taste to it.It was an effective hypnotic for sleep and I didn't wake up with a headache or a "hangover". Placidyl took effect in about 15 minutes and lasted all night long. It not only acted as a hypnotic, but as a sedative too. Eli Lilly&Co. ceased distribution of this drug in the late 1990's. ## If it was discontinued, there isn't much you can do about it. Are you currently trying anything else? Have you tried any of the Benzodiazepine class of medications, such as Xanax? ## Placidyl was one of the most effective sleep aids ever made. Abbott was the company that discontinued it in 1999. If you took on...

Zopishine 7.5 Zopiclone from India

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. Does anyone know if this is a good brand of the medication, and are they safe to take as directed? ## Can anybody give me any feedback on zopishine 7.5 manufacturing in India Has anyone tried them? ## I have received the same.

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!

Identificaion Wanted for a Round Purple Pill M 22

What is a round purple pill with an M and a 22 under it on one side and the other side is blank? ## What you have found is zolpidem. A prescription med under the brand name Ambien. The generic is purple with an M 22 imprinted on one side. Ambien is a sedative, also called a hypnotic. It affects chemicals in your brain that may become unbalanced and cause sleep problems (insomnia). It is used for the short-term treatment of insomnia. This medication may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for.

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...

Mylan Temazepam shortage

Has Mylan stopped making Temazepam 30mg? I have been on that brand /mfg for long time. Suddenly in NC no pharmacy can find any Mylan brand. All the other brands of Temazapam does not work like Mylan always has. Drug shortage list keeps stating no release date. I just would like to know if the completely stopped making the Mylan or when they may possibly release it again. I haven't gotten this brand since December 2018.These other brands just don't work.

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 ## ...

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: Zolpidem Can anyone else chime in with their experiences?

White zopiclone pills with no markings

I received my prescription for zopiclone but it’s a brand I’ve never had before. The packaging says ZOPIC 7.5 and says it’s produced by Radicon Laboratories. It’s an Indian brand. Has anyone taken them? What was your experience with them? Too scared to take them but need them for insomnia and severe anxiety. The last prescription I received was also an Indian brand but different tablets with markings and they worked well. ## Not all countries, and regulatory agencies require tablets to have markings, but if you've obtained them from a legitimate source, such as a pharmacy, then it should be okay to take them, but feel free to double check with them, if you aren't sure. Zopiclone may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, next day hangove...

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...

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.
