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...

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....

zolpidem tartare 12.5

Taking Lupin zolpidem ER round blue..works great. Pharmacy now has Sandoz zolpidem ER round pink. Both 12.5. Totally ineffective. Have gone back and forth before due to what pharmacy gets. The Sandoz is useless. Anyone else noticed this? ## Hello, Jay! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you've had. Alternatively, I took the Sandoz brand and it worked great for me and I didn't do well with the Lupin. It can just vary from person to person. We are all different. The only real way to avoid this is by asking your doctor if they can prescribe it as 'brand medically necessary', or whatever the equivalent is in your state. According to the FDA, this medication may cause side effects that could include nausea, dizziness, hallucinations, funny taste in mouth, sleep...

Taking Zolpidem after Oxycodone

My pain Dr. has okayed it for me to take Ambien (Zolpidem) at night. I take Oxycodone during the day only. He said I do need a primary care Dr. to prescribe the Ambien. Is it okay to take both of these within the same 24 hour period? ## Yes I did for awhile. I liked restoril better but they wouldn’t let me take a benzo sleeping pill with oxy. ## You can take them both, if your doctor(s) approve. However, the FDA does warn that doing so may worsen the severity of some of the usual side effects, which may include nausea, sedation, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and disorientation. Ref: Zolpidem and Oxycodone Information. Zolpidem has also been known to cause sleep actions, and next day hangover-like effects. Is there anything else I can help with?

Teva 74 10mg Zolpidem

I use this 10 mg (TEVA 74) generic Ambien. Empty bottle, but 2 in pill box so I verified ID. I always cut it because 5 mg almost always does the sleepy job. Often take quarter pill, then an another 1/4 pill if still awake 1/2 hr later. Cutting pills (if not specially coated) can save money as higher dose pills can cost little more than lower dose pills. ## Hello, Night Owl and thank you for the informative post. Learn more Zolpidem details here. Yes, it is safe to cut or break most regular release medications, unless you are specifically instructed not to do so by your doctor or pharmacist, so this method could save someone money in the long run. Anyone taking this, however, should be aware that it can cause some odd side effects, such as hallucinations, sleep eating and other strange s...

Torrent Zolpidem does not work

This brand does not work at all....Have taken ambien generic all along with no problem. Until this brand...Kinney's is mandated to dispense this brand... Does not work. Am taking 2-3 a night to sleep... Never had to before. It's own chemical composition by torrent does not work. Sucks. ## So just curious bc as a nurse I know these different generics seem to work differently on different ppl. Are u male? Younger? Older? I am 5'6/160lb/47yo/f & I tried 10mg Teva brand and it was a sleepless nightmare! Mylan 10mg worked ok. But surprisingly Torrent worked fine for me. I was surprised bc I'd read so many mixed reviews on that brand. But I have found that no matter what I use I have to take 3-6mg melatonin about an hr b4 & make sure the lights are lower so it can work...

Torrent Zolpidem defective?

Zolpidem Tartrate 10mg possibly defective? I take 1.5 to 2 tabs for me to get a therapeutic effect equivalent to the white generics I used to get from Medco. We used to call it "Buffing." Looking at the mold marks on the Torrent brand. A square with four dots inside it remind me of Mexican counterfeit tab impressions manufactured in latex or silicone hand pressed molds. The mark is not sharp and clear that I have seen elsewhere. The 10 Mg on the other side of the tab seems well imprinted? The yellow/orange pigment used in the tab....diluted yellow road paint? ## I agree. It felt like it was diluted. Now I ask my doctor for Teva -- never Torrent. It just seems weak somehow. ## Torrent Ambien is a scam. I think they dilute it....The company should be investigated... ## If you 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 ...

My teva zolpidem 10mg does not work. I sleep 3 hours

I have been taking zolpidem 10mg for many years and all was perfect. Now i changed pharmacies and it's 10mg of Teva with the # 74 on it and I am up in 3 hours and cannot get back to sleep. ## Try zolfresh 5 mg. I get sleep with this for more than 5 hours. It is also suggested to get a Dr.'s advice. ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? First, Zolpidem can help someone fall asleep, but it doesn't mean they will always stay asleep, which is why the time released version was created under brand name Ambien CR, according to the NIH. Second, if you've been taking it for years, you may have built up tolerance to it, which can prevent it from working as well for you. The FDA explains that we eventually get used to any medication that we take regularly for a long period of time, and we...

Where to get Torrent Zolpidem?

I have used Torrent Pharaceutical Zolpidem 10mg for quite a while and it works just fine. I would always get it from drugstore.com They now have changed from BioScript to Walgreens, and my first order came in the mail yesterday. It is not made by Torrent and does not work for me. I need Torrent. Where can I get this from? ## Unfortunately, there's really no way to know which tablet from any manufacturer that a pharmacy has in stock, especially via mail order. The only thing I can really suggest doing is checking with your local pharmacies to see which one they carry, or ask if they can order the other one in for you. Have you tried local pharmacies? ## You can have all mine from torrent lol ## Go to cvs and Walgreens I have not steeped in 4 days this TORRENT brand is so terrible sin...

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 ...

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...

RAAM logo Zolpidem 10mg from Mexico

I got a bottle of Hemitartrate Zolpidem 10mg tablets in Mexico. Bottle states manufacturer is Coropharma LLC. The logo for Coropharma products is CORO, but these tablets have a logo of RAAM on them. They don’t work. I only got nightmares, no sleep using them. ## I got the same thing and this RAAM logo pill doesn't work at all. I paid $120 dollars for my rx of 100 pills. ## Same thing happened to me. Terrible nightmares and did not help sleep. I used to be able to get really good Zolpidem. The pills were orange but price is way too high.

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 ...
