Ambien and Hydromorphine vs Sleep
| NurseBritt
I take 2mg of Hydromorphone for severe Chronic Migraines as well as 325mg of carisperidol for them as well, for the tension in my back and neck. I take Ambien 10mg for severe chronic insomnia. All prescibed by my migraine specialist neurologist. But, when I seem to take the Hydromorphone and Ambien together, it counteracts the intent to the ambien and keeps me awake. Practially all night. I'm not sure why? Is this a normal reaction between these two drugs, because I couldn't find any? Any insight would be great!

As others have reported I have been taking Zolpidem for Fibromyalgia for 5 years. The product is made by Teva Pharmaceuticals. I have never had a problem. I switched pharmacies and was given a different generic made by Torrent, an Indian drug company. It did not work. At all. I developed gastric reflux. This is a dangerous generic drug. I reported to the FDA on their website.

I was given Ambein while in the hospital. It was the worst experience. I had auditory and visual hallucinations of purple dragons, and fire. I don't recall sleeping much, and when I did, I had extreme night terrors. Never again will I take this medication. I have already refused it in the hospital. I would rather have pain keep me awake at noght, then take this medicine again.

I have been talking ambien for 11 years, 10 mg, rarely any problems. Pharmacy switched me last month. I have been having to slice pills 2 hours later to take extra because I had not fallen asleep. I know bit to take with food. This last presciption is already 5 pills short for the month. This has never happened. I switched out with my mom who gets her pills from a different pharmacy, and they worked fine. But my poor mother didn't sleep a wink taking my pill. I work 12 hour days and ambien has been my lifesaver. It got me off anti depressants and anxiety meds. All I needed was sleep. Unfortunately, I can already feel the effects of sleep deprivation. I complained to the pharmacy, but they said they havent gotten complaints, so it fell on deaf ears. I told my doctor, who told me to talk to pharmacy...duh.

I took an Ambien for insomnia for three nights, but all three nights I began having hives and itching all over my body, my hands, feet, back and scalp.

Stilnox brings on my cluster headaches very aggressively, definitely do not use during a outbreak.

Horrible - no effect on sleep and causes my legs to twitch and become restless.

OK Kids, here is the online for to report to the FDA about these serious side effects!
https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/medwatch/index.cfm?action=consumer.reporting1
I'm perfectly healthy, and these side effects made me so ill I haven't been able to work for a week!
What would this generic version do to someone with a medical condition?!
Save a life!! Report Torrent Pharmaceuticals in India as a dangerous drug!!

Plus too dizzy to stand up on 2nd day of this medication!
