Zolpidem Overview

Zolpidem, sold under the brand name Ambien, among others, is a medication primarily used for the short-term treatment of sleeping problems.[7][8] Guidelines recommend that it be used only after cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia and behavioral changes, such as sleep hygiene, have been tried.[9][10][11] It decreases the time to sleep onset by about fifteen minutes and at larger doses helps people stay asleep...

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....

Scarcity of Zolpidem Tartrate (generic Ambien)

For many years Qualitest has furnished an excellent generic version of Ambien 10 mg. I have tried various other manufacturers ---Teva, Mylan and they do not work for me. I called Qualitest (now part of Endo and Par Pharma) --- customer service on 2/24/16 and they indicated that they are getting allot of inquiries and stopped producing it in Oct 2015, due to "inability to get certain ingredients." I find this bizarre. It was a great seller. My pharmacy also indicated that there is a posting that several other generic companies are also not shipping this product other than the 2 above. ## Hello, Chuck! How are you? Yes, that is correct, most manufactures have a shortage listed with no known date of availability. Shortages, such as this that say they can't get the relevant ingr...

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...

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 ...

Availability of Teva Zolpidem Tartrate 10 mg

Where can I buy this? Most pharmacies don't carry Teva. Is there an updated Q and A, most are from 2012, it is now 2020! ## I checked around to see if there were any reported shortages from Teva but could not find anything. On the Teva website it states that their generics are available in most, but not all pharmacies. And that if a pharmacy does not carry their generic they might be able to order it from Teva for you at no extra cost. Have you tried asking your pharmacy if they are able to specifically order Teva for your next refill? You might also consider a licensed mail order pharmacy, as they may simply dispense the Teva brand. What kind are you getting now and how do they work for you?

Ambien Zolpidem 10mg - round orange tablet from Mexico

Info needed. Does anyone know if Ambien (Zolpidem) 10 mg from Mexico comes in a small 1/4" round, lightish orange color tablet (white inside). Scorned on one side and unmarked on the other side? Does anyone know if there is a Mexican pill identifier website? How can I tell if they are real or is Zolpidem 10mg even made like that? Is anyone familiar with these or have taken them ok? ## Unfortunately, when you order from a foreign sources, this is one of the hazards. Other than paying to have it lab tested, there is no way to be certain what you have received. There is no website to identify them, because their products are not regulated like their U.S. counterparts and they are not required to log their imprints. Is anyone familiar with these? ## I got this pill from a US phamacy. No...

White oval pill with 79 on one side and a 3 on the other side

What's an oval white pill with 79 on one side and a 3 on the other side? There is no "E" or "e" on this pill. Please help. ## Hello, Puney! How are you? That is still intended to be an E, but it is stylized to be their logo, which is why it looks so much like a three. NDC: 65862-0160 You are not the first person who thought it was a 3, and I admit that it does look like one to me, as well. The tablet contains 10mgs of Zolpidem, which is used to treat insomnia, and similar sleep issues. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, next day hangover-like effects, and sleep actions. Inactive ingredients may include: Lactose Monohydrate Cellulose, Microcrystalline Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato Magnesium Stearate Hypromellose 2910 (5 Mpa.s) Polyethylene...

Yellow Pill A I

I need help identifying a pill. It is very light yellow and round, with no scoring. The only identifier is (I think) A I, on the same side. It is clearly a capital A. Next to the A is either I, or 1. It looks like a capital I, just a straight line. Thanks in advance ## Hi Roland, I "may have" located to your pill to be Zolpidem tartrate extended release (12.5 mg). I only say "may have" because my source does not show a photo of the pill; just a description that matches "A1" and that the pill is round and yellow. If it helps to know, the manufacturer of this pill is Actavis Elizabeth LLC. I'll go ahead and post this drug information below so you can see if it rings a bell or not: Zolpidem is a prescription medication used for the short-term treatment of insomn...
