Zolpidem Overview

Zolpidem, sold as the brand name Ambien among others,[1] is a sedative primarily used for the treatment of trouble sleeping. It usually works within 15 minutes, and has a short half-life of two to three hours. Zolpidem has not adequately demonstrated effectiveness in maintaining sleep, unless delivered in a controlled-release (CR) form. However, it is effective in initiating sleep.[2] Its hypnotic effects are similar to those of the benzodiazepine class of drugs. In 2013, the Food and Drug Ad...

zolab ip tabs (zolpidem) from India
6 Replies RSS
Hello, Has anyone used Zolab ip tabs (Ambien) from India? From Zenlabs pharmaceuticals ## Just got the Zenlab zolpidem 10 mg IP, it's a DUD!!! ## I see you used the Zolab. Were they really fake? Just ordered some since my Ambien here was getting expensive. I have a prescription for it. Are the Zolab's not safe and ineffective? ## I ordered what I thought was Zolpidem from India but it looks completely different. The packaging says Zolpidem tartrate restonite. They are white, long Bar like white pills. Are they safe to use and are they the same as Zolpidem 10 mg like they say they are ## Hi, Don't remember zolabs, but I just received the orange colored tablet that come in the bubble wrapper LYPIN-10 by JP DRUGS that are supposed to be Zolpidem 10mg. I went though 10 of them s...

Zolpidem sleep medication
2 Replies RSS
Is there another medication stronger than 10 mg zolpidem? Lately, zolpidem hasn't been putting me asleep with one pill. I've been doing 3 a night... which makes me run out of the prescription before the 30 day timeframe! I haven't had a chance to talk with my doctor yet but I will. Any suggestions? ## Try a different brand of generic. Some are notoriously weak. Which brand are you taking now? ## This medication is really only intended for the short term treatment of insomnia, not for long term use. How long have you been taking it? The FDA warns that it may cause side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, sleep actions, hallucinations, and next day hangover-like effects. What other medications have you tried? Taking 3 of them can be very dangerous.

Torrent Zolpidem
3 Replies RSS
Zolpidem tartrate 10mg possibly defective? It 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 as pics 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? Hmmm Very curious situation.... ## 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 sho...

what does zolpidem pill look like 12 5 mg
3 Replies RSS
my pill us is round and white with number 2113 on one side only abd us suppose to be a zolpidem 12.5 ## Hello, Carol! How are you? Can you please double check the imprint and post back? The closest I can find has the markings A116, which is manufactured by Anchen Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 12.5mgs of Zolpidem in an extended release formulation. The FDA classifies this medication as a sedative hypnotic and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, hallucinations, sleep actions and next day hangover-like effects. ## zolpidem only comes in 10mg and not 12mg as you said it was. ## I have these zolpidem ER and they don't work at all!

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 ...

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...

how do i overcome zolfresh 10mg habit & withdrawl symptoms ## Zolfresh contains the active ingredient Zolpidem, it is used for the short term treatment of insomnia. Learn more Zolpidem details here. As to beating an addiction, how much are you taking at once? Or did you just mean that you've become dependent on the 10mg dosage and can't sleep without it? If it's the latter, then you'll likely need to slowly cut the dosage and frequency that you take it. Have you consulted a doctor for assistance? ## i take 16 pil of 10 mg total in a day 160 mg how can i reduce it to zero? ## I take zolfresh for headache it doesnt cure it i feel addicted to it thou. I feel as if Im active and i feel drunk too even now Im dizzy cause of it ## how can i deadict from zolfresh i take 4 ta...

I used to take Atatax for itching and as a light sedative/antihistamine (1 tablet per night). Now Pfizer are no longer manufacturing this drug. my Dr has now prescribed Urbanol 10mg and I am afraid of taking this medication as i have read that it is the same as Zolpidem, Zolpihexal and these are for Insomnia and I dont suffer from Insomnia only the itching. My pharmacist said to only take them when necessary, and I dont feel that they will work the same as Atarax which I took everyday day!!! ## No, Urbanol is not the same as Zolpidem. It contains the active ingredient Clobazam, which is a Benzodiazepine derivative that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Atarax contained the active ingredient Hydroxyzine and it is still available. Are there any other questio...

Yes this little Peach tablet is Zolpidem I take these but I don't like them because I still wake up twice during the night and I'm Up by 4 a.m. and can't get back to sleep I used to take the same medication but in a small white tablet and I only needed half of one and I would sleep all night long I don't know if it's the manufacturer that makes him or not but this one is by Torrent. It is weaker than the small white tablet with the 6469/V on it. ## Ok so here's the deal. The old white 6469 pill you were on was the much beloved Qualitest Zolpidem. Damn near everybody loved that one to death. Sadly, they discontinued it about a year back, so you can never get it again. If it makes you feel any better, there is a whole contingent of us fellow Qualitest Missers mad a...
