Avatar f tn Hi there, Zolpidem is a sedative and a hypnotic. It affects chemicals in your brain which have become unbalanced and cause sleep problem Fibromyalgia is a condition in which the person has long term body pain. The goal of treatment in this condition is to improve sleep and pain tolerance. Medicines should always be used along with exercise and behavior therapy. Medications like Duloxetione, pregabalin and Milnacipram have been approved for treating fibromyalgia.
Avatar m tn Both,, zolpidem and temazepam.. zolpidem has a side affect of upper lower torso pain pain like E.R pain. Even if you report this pain to a doc. ? Get off it.
Avatar f tn It more like the hypnotic sleep medications I.e. Zolpidem - (ambien) " Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when this drug is suddenly stopped. Also, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as hallucinations and seizures. To prevent withdrawal reactions, your doctor may reduce your dose gradually. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details, and report any withdrawal reactions immediately.
Avatar m tn it was not until after my doctor told my that quiting benzo's was harder to quit than any type of narcotic that reality set in...to all those that are tring to quit their narcotic habit ...let me give you a reality check...there is nothing and i mean nothing worse than than the need for sleep and not getting any...if you think that your withdrawls are bad from narcotics...
Avatar n tn I can tell you how it works, but I'm not sure it's going to be of much help. Zolpidem (Ambien) is a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic of the imidazopyridine class. This drug binds very selectively to the benzodiazepine omega-1 receptor (unlike other benzodiazepines which bind non-selectively to omega-1, 2, and 3 receptor subtypes), It increases the frequency of chloride channel opening. When those channels open, it depresses the activity of the nerves 'attached' to these receptors, so firing goes down.
Avatar f tn i have taken it for years off and on without a problem...it is non-narcotic nor is it a benzo..i have never developed a tolerence to it and i just fall asleep 20 minutes after i take it...but it can be abused and there are people who have an addiction to nyquil and benadryl too...be careful with any drug you use..even OTC drugs...
Avatar f tn No OTC or narcotic pain meds or SOMA help the pain. I tried a 3-day trial of Tegretol last year and could not continue it because of the god-awful spaced-out feeling (there was no pain relief at the time). The only thing that helps the pain and gets me through the day is chewing mint gum (I know that's harmful if I have TMJ, but chewing gum and sleeping are absolutley the the only times when I'm pain-free). An oral surgeon did a myofascial release injection, with no help.
Avatar f tn I started taking Zolpidem(Generic form of Ambien) almost 2 years ago as the Trazadone I had taken prior to that had stopped working, I knew what the side affects were for me (even now as I write, I can't remember what words I am supposed to use) while I was under the influence of the pill(30 minutes after taking it).
Avatar n tn I take up to 150 MG a day of oxycodone, I am trying to get off because I feel as if I don't need the meds anymore, I have found a different non-narcotic to help ease the pain. I am not pain free but the oxycodone is worse than the pain I am in. I can't seem to get off the oxt though, I am experiencing extremely bad withdrawals, and I can't seem to get any help from my doctors. I have even tried to go to a detox, but I have to abuse the drug in order to get into the program.
Avatar n tn Office nurse called to say she discussed this w/Dr. and no narcotic that is processed by the liver will be prescribed.Can't take NSAIDS due to ulcers.She said to try something non pharmasuitical-Beleive me,I've tried many other options-opiates only things that really helps to deaden the pain.She said no one would prescribe narcotics because it would be like giving me poison and will cause liver failuer some time down the line.
Avatar m tn So he finally caved and gave me tramadol,clonazepam,zolpidem,lorazepam, and medicon-a. A lot of pills but nothing really strong enough to keep me comfortable, but I think I should be able to get a little sleep with them at least. Still clean from dope, yay! I used to have a busy social life but since my son was born last year we don't get much chance to go out. It's all about the kid now, but I love it and want to be clean so bad, especially when I look into his eyes.
Avatar m tn Well I took these untill I seen him again and explained how they did'nt work and we should try something else,he then gave me some non narcotic pill and few different kinds over say 6 months. I then explained I had a old football injury ( broke my tibula & fibula ) and it hurt sometimes & that these pills are not working. A friend gave me a vicodin or 5 :) and I took them and it seemed to work and even felt pertty good. So next time at the doc he gives me .5 90 count 30 days worth.
Avatar f tn It was very effective for me. If it was not so addicting, I would prefer it to Ambien/Zolpidem. I can't speak intelligently about how it interacts with the other medications you are taking. I don't recall seeing Temazapam/Restoril mentioned in the Incivek medication guide, but you may want to check the guide yourself to be sure. Cheers, GB http://pi.vrtx.com/files/usmedguide_telaprevir.
Avatar n tn 025mgp/6hrs, also wore a clonidine patch that lasted 7 days), immodium ad(twice daily), tigan(an anti-nausea med used when nausea and vomiting), ambien(zolpidem-10mgs at nighttime for insomnia), and then after three days and once in bad withdrawals i was put on 4 mgs of sub and it alleviated all my wd symptoms, thats why i found it strange your reaction to not only suboxone but to subutex..
1684282 tn?1505701570 As you have read in patient letters above, the withdrawals from tramadol are no different from any other narcotic. It is nasty, it lasts a long time and most people can get though it cold turkey. In fact, because of the serotonin re-uptake inhibition of this drug, the depression aspect of withdrawal after tramadol is much more severe and lasts much longer. It needs to be specifically addressed. So what are we doing to our patients? Are we acting in your best interests?
146298 tn?1258715847 In my (long) experience, it is unlikely that a doctor will continue to prescribe such a strong narcotic painkiller without a diagnosis or documentation of cause of pain. I'm sorry that I don't know your history, so I don't know if you have that information documented. Since you weren't able to go over things with your new doctor, I'm hoping that you have a timeline of your symptoms and any imaging reports, bloodwork results, etc. that might shed some light on what's going on with you.
Avatar n tn Ambien is not a benzo but interacts with some of the same receptors in the brain. I would infer from this that some of Ambien's effects will be similar to that of a benzo. Rxlist: "While zolpidem [Ambien] is a hypnotic agent with a chemical structure unrelated to benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or other drugs with known hypnotic properties, it interacts with a GABA-BZ receptor complex and shares some of the pharmacological properties of the benzodiazepines.
Avatar m tn I also take at times zolpidem 10mg this is a sleep aid. The dr said it's not a narcotic or adictive, but I'm still trying to be careful. The strange thing is they always worked by themselves, last night I just couldn't fall asleep after one of them didn't wotk, I took the other and that knocked me cold : ) I am taking Cal/MAG power plus high powered vitamins a few times a day. One from Dr Dave specifically for withdrawals, and a good liquid vitamin at other times of the day.
Avatar n tn Also, have you been taking a narcotic to treat your pain from the accident and operations? I've been taking oxycodone for over a year now, and I'm wondering if there's a connection between narcotic usage for chronic pain and suppressed testosterone production.
Avatar n tn They put me on Dilaudid (a sister drug to percocet)-I felt wonderful! Three days later, after finding out that I was on another narcotic I stopped completely. That was 3 weeks ago. My symptons were stomach cramping, night sweats, inability to eat ANYTHING without stomach cramping, insomnia, crying, depression, feeling of hopelessness (which a KNEW was not true, but felt it all the same), shakes, feeling I would never get better.
Avatar m tn The worst night ever was the night I came down with a migraine so bad that I went into the ER (bad as in I was crying from the pain, and couldn't answer the questions). They gave me some kind of narcotic, and it was like poison. My family watched horrified as every time I'd start to fall asleep, my body would sieze for about six seconds. It can't be epilepsy though, because I'm conscious and can talk (not to mention that this only happens as I'm falling asleep.
