Sleep Aid Overview

Hypnotic (from Greek Hypnos, sleep), or soporific drugs, commonly known as sleeping pills, are a class of (and umbrella term for) psychoactive drugs whose primary function is to induce sleep (or surgical anesthesia) and to treat insomnia (sleeplessness). This group of drugs is related to sedatives. Whereas the term sedative describes drugs that serve to calm or relieve anxiety, the term hypnotic generally describes drugs whose main purpose is to initiate, sustain, or lengthen sleep. Because t...

Zopiclone 7.5mg blue without markings

I got zopiclone 7.5mg. They are packaged in strips stating zop 7.5mg. The tabs are round, blue, scored on one side, with no markings. They do work, but i'm a bit concerned as to whether or not they are safe. Can anyone enlighten me on this one? ## If they are Hab pharmaceutical ones from India they are the weakest of any zopiclone and believe me ive tried well over 15 brands! The confusing thing is when you look at their website the tablets are rugby shaped not round an saucer-like? I have a feeling they are not legitimate!!!! ## I brought zopiclone 7,5mg the blue round from India, are these safe and can I cut them down ## Hab zopiclone are fine... Not rugby shaped at all. Mine are round, blue and have a groove on one side. ## I got the same there from india, I been taking them, bec...

Ambien 10mgs vs. Sonata 20mgs

I was prescribed Ambien 10mgs, and it worked for a year. I started waking during the night and couldn't go back to sleep. My Psychologist prescribed me Sonata 10mgs a month ago, but it's not working. She is out of town this month, so I won't see her for a while. Is it ok to take 20mgs? I also take Lamictal 150mg and Effexor 225mg Clonazepam .5mg as needed ## Hello, Blackberry! How are you? I'm sorry that you're unable to sleep. No, you should not adjust the dosage, without your doctor's approval, especially while taking the Clonazepam, it could be dangerous. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Sonata as including dizziness, funny taste, headache, dry mouth and back pain. How often do you take the Clonazepam? That can also help with sleep issues. ## Hi Black...

ambien 10 vs zolipidem10

Is the zolpide 10mg exactly the same as ambien peach tabs ## Hi, Hazel! I'm sorry, but without more information, such as the dosage or markings on the peach tablet you've mentioned, I can't say if they are the same or not. However, I can tell you that from what you've listed in the post title they would be considered the same. Zolpidem is the active ingredient in Ambien, so it's the generic version. This medication is used for the short-term treatment of insomnia and may cause some side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, hallucinations and next day hangover effects. Learn more Ambien details here. Do you know what the markings are on the peach tablets? ## I've been on the peach one for over a year it's from torrent now they gave me the other I hate it all th...

behavioural disorders from debendox

Can taking debendox result in humans developing behavioural disorders that are cyclic in the way they daughter (35yrs old now) can appear quite normal for weeks at a time then she will exhibit borderline pshchotic behaviour then after a few days she will be OK again. ## This contains Pyridoxine and Doxylamine, it isn't used in the U.S., so I have to admit my information on it is limited. Her symptoms, however, sound similar to those of bipolar disorder. Learn more Bipolar disorder details here. Have you consulted a doctor? ## I took debendox when pregnant with my noiw 33 year old daughter. She has problems emotionally but is very bright. I have friends who also took this drug and their children have the same problems. Its almost like they dont grow up and over react to ma...

I thought they were sleeping tablets.... Tia ## Zolpidem or zolpidem tartrate is the generic name of Ambien. If your he...

melatonin showing up as benzodiazepene in toxicology testing

My toxicology test is showing a benzodiazepene when all I'm taking is Melatonin? I don't get it, you can get melatonin over the counter since it's a natural supplement. ## @SaviorFaire, I find this occurrence to be very unusual considering that melatonin is completely unrelated and would even go so far as question if anyone might've had the opportunity or a reason to try and pollute your sample before the tox report? Given the circumstances it may be a good idea to request a re-evaluation via Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) to achieve what I'd imagine to be the most accurate results. If the GC-MS proves otherwise, then it should be a wake up call to the inefficiency of standard toxicology procedures. Please keep us posted if everything gets straightened ...

Torrent Zolpidem does not work

This brand does not work at all....Have taken ambien generic all along with no problem. Until this brand...Kinney's is mandated to dispense this brand... Does not work. Am taking 2-3 a night to sleep... Never had to before. It's own chemical composition by torrent does not work. Sucks. ## So just curious bc as a nurse I know these different generics seem to work differently on different ppl. Are u male? Younger? Older? I am 5'6/160lb/47yo/f & I tried 10mg Teva brand and it was a sleepless nightmare! Mylan 10mg worked ok. But surprisingly Torrent worked fine for me. I was surprised bc I'd read so many mixed reviews on that brand. But I have found that no matter what I use I have to take 3-6mg melatonin about an hr b4 & make sure the lights are lower so it can work...

I filled my prescription for Zopiclone 7.5 mg and received white concave tablets with Z on one side and 7.5 on the other side. On the packaging it says Zopishine / Zopiclone and that it's manufactured by HAB laboratory in India.
