Meprobamate Overview

Meprobamate—marketed as Miltown by Wallace Laboratories and Equanil by Wyeth, among others—is a carbamate derivative used as an anxiolytic drug.

Drug-Meprobamate

What ever happened to this drug? It helped me so much to function but also relieved all kinds of pain in my body. I know it is an older drug from the 60's but it was a God send to me. Today I am on pain meds that don't work that well, and my mind races which is exhausting. I wish I knew of someone who still makes it.

How effective is Meprobamate for anxiety? After taking, how long before it wears off? ## As for how often to take it, you should follow your doctor's prescribing instructions. ## I took medabone about a month ago and the result is still positive I want to know how long does it take to wear off.

Round Pill Diamond imprint with R

White, flat surface, diamond imprint with R in the diamond. ## Hi John, I've only come across one medication so far that fits your description of an imprint with an R inside of a diamond. The description of the pill does not mention any specific details other than the imprint being "4005 R inside diamond". This particular pill is identified as Meprobamate 200 mg; which is used for treatment of anxiety. If that information isn't of much help, I did also find that the manufacturer of pills with this logo is Watson Pharmaceuticals. It may be worth your time to contact them directly via email or phone to get an answer straight from the source. I hope this helps!
