Teva Trazodone 50 mg

I've been using Zydrus brand for years at bedtime 1 pill. CVS gave me Teva, as per pharmacist this is only brand they carry bc of volume pricing. No more special orders, as corporate will not allow it. My other drugs i.e. alprazolam same story. Has anyone used Teva that has switched from other brands? CVS is no longer customer friendly!!!! They are my in network pharmacy. I'm screwed. ## They no longer carry Teva generic Adderall . They haven’t a few years Each location has only what is stored ## Thanks for your reply. However, it was Teva Trazodone that I was inquiring about. How effective is it compared to other generic brands. I was using Zydus. ## As with any medication, it works well for some people, but not for everyone. The only way to find out how it works for you ...

I have fibromyligia and chronic fatig and have had sleep problems for over 26 years . I started with many different drugs, i was up to 400mg of trazadone at night for sleep. i hate the side effects and have tried for years to get off it. I can't. I am right now down to 225mg at night, but my body shakes and i am very nerves and cry easy if i don't have it. I am also on celexa. I want to get off it completly but do not no how. ## A very slow taper is usually the best solution for stopping a medication, such as Trazodone. Have you consulted your doctor? They should be able to help you set up a proper, and safe, tapering schedule. The FDA lists the Trazodone withdrawal effects as possibly including rebound depression, rebound pain, rebound anxiety, insomnia, nervousness, and seizur...

trasadone

sleep meds ## I have been taking trasadone for at least 10 years or more. My teeth have turned almost brown in color, I have gained a lot of weight and I am still depressed and anxious. My docotr told me they do tend to stop working after long periods of time. What else is out there that can help me so I can stop taking trasodone? My memory is about shot and sometimes I cannot remember from 0 to 30 seconds back and other days I have good recall. What is that from? Should my blood be tested to see what level my serotonin is? ## Trazodone is an antidepressant that also has sedative like properties, so it is sometimes used to treat insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, mood changes, sedation, and the weight gain tha...

trazodone for insomnia

I have read the leaflet that came w/ my meds. Its listed as an antidepressant but was prescribed to me for insomnia. Two questions now. 1. Do I have to take it every night? 2. How worried should I be about the side effects? Frankly, I've put off taking it because I've never been diagnosed w/ depression, just insomnia & migraine. Any concise info you can provide would be great! Just speak to me like a person, not a doctor. Thanks! ## Trazadone. First off Trazadone is a cocaine withdrawal pill. And I guess it is prescribed for insomnia as well. My doctor gave it to me to help me sleep. It most definitely put me to sleep. But the bad, bad, bad thing about this medication is it stops your nose up to point where its impossible to breath. The first time I took it I knew exactly ho...

qualitest manufacturer

I need to find, for my pharmacy, Trazadone by Qualitest. I take three daily. I have been on other manufacturers since February of last year and having problems. The one they have me on now has me crying easily and I cannot get going to do anything. Once I get going, I act like I am in a hurry all the time. My pharmacy tried the ones I am on now 2 years ago and I had problems then. Can someone help? ## I know from personal interaction the other manufacturers are not the same chemical compositions. The results are obviously different. The absolute worst one is PLIVA. While on that, I even let my electricity get cut off. I worry for other patients, too. I was sent to another pharmacy and given Apotex last night. I found Qualitest myself a couple of years ago and the pharmacy I use ordered ...

will trazodone and nefazodone mix well?

I took Nefazodone for years and it worked well for me. After hearing it may be pulled from the market, I've tried many other antidepressents, with no success. I'm now back to an old one Trazodone @ 125 mg and even though it's about 3 weeks into it, I seem to be getting worse instead of better. I liked my Nefazodone (Serzone). I still have some from earlier. Would it hurt to take a small dosage of Nefazodone with the Trazodone? I'm feeling so bad, sad, and anxious that I'm wanting relief, soon. ## Generally, it is best not to mix them, unless your doctor specifically decides it is safe, or necessary for you to do so. They are in the same drug class, so taking them both, or taking too much of one, may result in Serotonin Syndrome, which can be very dangerous, and has t...

ID white pill with APO 750

White round pill scored in middle, imprint is APO on top half and 750 on bottom. Small pill about 4 or 5 mm in diameter. ## Yellow and red pill with the number s 187 on only one sie ## I believe you are referring to a pill that is scored with APO at the top and T50 (not 750) on the bottom. If this is correct, he pill you are referring to is called Trazodone 50mg. It is most commonly used in conjuction with SSRI's (Selective Seritonin Reuptake Inhibitors) like Prozac to treat depression and anxiety. Please consult a health care professional before taking this or any other prescription medication which was not intended for yourself as there are side effects associated with this medication as well as interaction dangers. ## The identification provided to the pill in the original post i...

(NDC 50111-434) Inactive Ingredients: - Silicon Dioxide - Anhydrous Lactose - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, weight changes, and mood changes. ## what is this drug used for is it similar to vicodin?, and is it used to relieve pain? ## No.... it is nothing like Vicodin (hydrocodone).

apotex vs pliva trazodone

My pharmacy just switched manufacturers of my prescription trazodone 50mg. It used to be made by apotex now it is pliva and I am finding that the new pills are having little to no effect and I am starting to suffer discontinuation syndrome. I talked to my pharmacist and doctor and neither one could tell me what was causing this. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who could shed some light on the subject. ## Yes, I can. Under Federal Law, by way of the Hatch Watchman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from their name brand counterparts by as much as plus or minus 20% in the active ingredient. Many people are not aware of this, including doctors, but the FDA considers this to be a very minor difference that does not affect the therapeutic dosing of medications. So,...
