my husband works third shift and cant sleep well. he doesnt have any drug or alcohol problems but he doesnt have insurance so we dont want to waste our time going to a dr who cant help, ## HI, Jen! Ambien isn't a controlled substance, so any doctor can prescribe it, there are no restrictions on that. However, the issue may be the fact that your husband always works this shift and Ambien is only intended for short term treatment of insomnia, it's not meant to be something that you take for a long, ongoing period of time. Learn more Ambien details here. It causes the risk of some serious side effects, some of which could affect his ability to work, such as the next day hangover like effects, which tend to be very bad. Thus, it likely isn't the best choice for your husband, any... ...

i have adhd,bypolar and manic depressant and have mood swings ## Hello, Katie! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist, at least for the Adderall, since it is a controlled substance. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, nervousness, insomnia and anorexia. What is your general location? That information would make it easier for someone to recommend a good doctor in you area. ...

I went to the pharmacy today to fill mine and my husband's prescriptions. When I was looking at all the scripts, I realized that my husband's script had more then usual. Now here's the thing- He is prescribed 30 10mg ambien a month but the insurance will only cover 15 for him. His bottle had 30 in but the qty on the bottle said 15 and I only paid the insurance prem for the 15. Now I dont know what to do- He is prescribed the 30 I picked up but I only paid for 15- should I contact the pharmacy since it is a controlled substance? I know they cant make me return them, but I specificly told them today to only fill what the insurance would pay for- I want to inform them of there error but I dont want to be forced to pay $30 for it. ## Hello, In my opinion, if you just want to do ... ...

I have been on antidepressants, Cymbalta, Lamictal, Ambien & Klonopin. I'm am currently off ambien now and weaning Klonopin, soon to be off. No complaints. My only trouble with Trazodone is major headaches. I do stress exercises daily for chronic low back pain and surgery for l1 fracture. I've just come off five 10/325 norco to 15 mg ms contin 3 a day. My pain is better but not fully controlled. I'm very aware of addiction and dependence, so the less controlled substance the better. What I'm looking for is advice. My sleep cycle is horrible due to a lot of different medical issues, such as kidney stones. I have colon polyps surgery in two months. Plus I deal with regular stress. I go to a therapist and many doctors just wanted opinions of staying on ms contin. It gav... ...

Ambien Saliva Compliance Test
Post a Reply
I have been with my current doctors office for over 12 years. For that same time period, they have been prescribing me ambien to take on a regular basis for anxiety related insomnia. The only other medication I take is atenolol for PVC's and neurontin for nerve pain related to ACDF surgery last year and other problems in my neck. The past year or so the practice has understandably seemed jumpy about controlled substance prescriptions, requiring more frequent visits, etc. Last week when I went in for medication adjustment they surprised me with a "random" medication compliance drug screening. I was told they would just be testing for the ambien to make sure I am taking it. I take this medicine faithfully every night for better or worse. I am one of those who admittedly has be... ...
