I took zolphihexal 10mg as a sleeping pil, but it do not word for me - i'm still not sleeping. ## This medication contains the active ingredient Zolpidem, which is used for the short-term treatment of insomnia. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, hallucination, sleep actions, and next day hangover-like effects. What else have you tried to help you sleep? Are you on any other medications? ## Hi Verwon, have you tried Zolpihexal or Ivedal. Both have zolpidem in them,zolpidem never worked for me but zolpihexal and Ivedal worked for me

Restonite tablets IP (Zolpidem 10mg)

Does anyone know what other ingredients, besides Titanium Dioxide, are used to make up the weight of the Restonite tablet (obtained from India)? ## I just got some of these. I took them & these are bar-shaped. They taste & burn just like real ambien. Id love to find a chemist to isolate the exact ingredients so I know to keep ordering if these work. And not be taking poisen or anything.... You shuld be able to look up the Restonite by Ledford healthcare in Mumbai. There is a website & email address, perhaps they can email you the prescribers info that tells you what's in there. ## which better? Zolipem or restonite, or ZOLT? ## Be very careful. I was taking the zolpidem from this company and my drug panel results came back positive for PCP. Have a wide spectrum narcotics...

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...

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...

does zolpidem initially cause uneasiness at night

i started zolpidem very recently 5 mg at night the very first night i slept, but also kept turning left and right. as a layman i thought this medicine is supposed to provide restful sleep, not toss/turn sleep. overall feeling next morning was not really a peaceful night whereby you prepare and get refreshed for a new day please comment whatever you know about this thank you ## Hello, Green! How are you? Yes, it most certainly can cause those types of side effects, that's the hazards that come with adding a chemical to the body to remedy a problem. While they may knock you out, the way sleep inducing medications act on brain chemicals may cause restlessness to the point where you don't feel rested. This one has even been known to cause dangerous sleep actions, such as driving. It...

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 ...

small round yellow pill with no imprint

Cant seem to find any info on these ones. Went trough a friends old stuff and found them. She's travelled alot in her days and I think these are from Thai. Some1 seen these? IMAGE 1 IMAGE 2 ## This looks alot like motion-sickness pills the thai take while out drinking or to sleep (rarely for motion sickness) For me, Zopiclone and Zolpidem don't work for sleep at all, but one or two of these bad-boys and im out cold, and not knocked out, just falling asleep. ## I found a small light yellow round pill with no imprint besides a line on one side. Does anyone know what they could be?

white teva 24 pill

I've been taking zolpidem tartrate aka ambien for 11 years. As soon as the generic came out by Teva I noticed it does not put me to sleep at all. None of my meds have changed. Have you heard any complaints about the strength of Teva's zolpidem? ## Hello, Gi! How are you? Has there been any change? Is the marking TEVA 74? That should be the marking on their 10mg Zolpidem tablet. However, there can be fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another. Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, they are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20% and they don't have to measure against other generics, just the name brand. Thus, one could be slightly higher or lower in the amount of the active ingredient than another one. Though, s...
