My dentist gave me either halcion or haldol to pull all my teeth out, they only gave me two of the tiniest pills 1 hour before I went in the dentist chair. I was not completely normal again for over 24 hrs. My question is, which medication do you believe it was that they gave me? The haldol or halcion? And how could 2 lil pills completely knock me out to where I felt no pain nor do I remember anything about the pulling of my teeth and was out for an additional 24hrs after the procedure? ## Hello, Kelliekell! How are you? It was most likely Halcion, it contains the active ingredient Triazolam and is also often used to treat severe cases of insomnia. It is a benzodiazepine and very potent, which explains how it affected you. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, i...

I took a Rx for #30 Ct.2.5 Mg. TRIAZOLAM (Halcion) . They, the pharmacy was limited to dispersal of #15 Ct. at one time. The Gov't or some regulatory agency was responsible. I felt a bit unimpresssed as I am careful. After a few days, one can get the balance of the remaining #15 Ct. 2.5 Mg. Tablets.gu ## Kim Lawson In the USA they are a CDS 4 a very potent benzodiazepine sleep aide in a dosage of 0.25 mg not 2.5 mg. Please let's get this stuff right.....

Midazolam or Verced is the benzodiazepine used in surgeries and for IV use in some states for "euthanasia". Halcion is close to the formula in Midazolam. Now, the pharmaceutical companies WILL NOT supply pentobarbitol from this country to be used for state sanctioned "end of life" indications. Midazolam was used for a termination of life in Oklahoma and the result was cruel and unusual. In Oregon and Washington state I understand end stage illness is legal for self use with pentobarbitol or Seconal. Have you heard contrary?


Is it safe to take a halcion if it's been expired for 20 years? ## Hello, Michelle! How are you? No, any medication that is that old should be disposed of, medications lose efficacy over time, because they degrade and there is a chance that one that is this old could make you ill, if you take it. The FDA lists Halcion as containing Triazolam, which is a benzodiazepine. They are most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. They carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

WHITE COLOR STAMPED G3717 ## what is this pill. I was told the bottle says it is halcion, but I get a different name for this description. ## This is Triazolam 0.025mgs which is the generic version Halcion. Same thing, just made by someone other than the name brand company!
