How does Restoril compare to Ambien?
Asked by Darcy Sheriff 1 year ago.

Restoril Vs Ambien Answered by Elenor Feenstra 1 year ago.

While chemically Ambien (Zolpidem) and Restoril (Temazepam) work on a similar manners (GABA inhibition) I think they are very different in effect. Ambien works very fast and has a short half life (how long it effects you), around 2 hours. While Restoril does not work very well for falling asleep, it does work well staying asleep as it has a longer half life. This causes many people including myself to feel hung over in the morning. Plus, I only have a problem falling asleep. In fact I read a study not to long ago where Restoril had almost no impact on inducing drowsiness, and was found only beneficial in staying asleep. Both drugs are considered a controlled substance level 4 (lowest). There are more possible interactions and side effects associated with Ambien than there are Restoril. For example, sleep eating, sleep walking, sleep sexing (being serious). I prefer Zolpidem over most sleep aides however, I build tolerance fast and I can't eat when taking it or it's effects are greatly diminished. Answered by Asley Wolfinger 1 year ago.


Restoril/xanax question?
so its never used for anxiety? Asked by Jacquie Piersaul 1 year ago.

While Restoril is "supposed" to work for sleep and Xanax for anxiety, Restoril does little for sleep in my experience whereas Xanax is the most dependable sleep agent I personally know. Perhaps others experience this differently. But to me Restoril (temazepam) stinks for sleep. I can say it is relaxing however. I don't know how it would be for an anxiety medication. Anxiety is better dealt with with longer term non- sedative medications like SSRIs Busaprone, Neurontin. Giving a person a supply of Xanax is rather out of date. But I like it. Answered by Floyd Sorotzkin 1 year ago.

Not really. They will both calm you down, but restoril is used for insomnia. Xanax is good for anxiety and panic disorder. Both medications are benzodiazapenes but xanax works quicker than restoril. Xanax is an excellent drug for anxiety and panic disorder and works faster and more effectively than valium and other slower acting benzo's like restoril.. Answered by Eryn Metts 1 year ago.

Absolutely not! Restoril is for sleep Xanax is for anxiety. They come from the same class of drugs called benzodizapines. Just like Valium, lorazapam And yes, used over a long period they can become habit forming Answered by Refugia Trifero 1 year ago.

How addictive is Restoril?
I would like to know if anyone has had personal experiences with this medication and perhaps knows about its addiction potential. Asked by Del Griffy 1 year ago.

All benzodiazepines are addicting, however, Restoril is not as addicting as the others such as Valium and Xanax. Restoril is strictly a hypnotic, meaning it induces and maintains sleep, where most of the other benzos are anxiolytic. Anxiolytic benzos cause a euphoria or "buzz" which leads to dependence and addiction. Benzos other than Restoril for the most part have longer half-lives than Restoril, making the effects last longer. There are 2 types of addiction - physical and psychological. All sleep aids can be psychologically addicting, meaning the patient cannot sleep until that pill is taken. Sometimes people can become physically addicted to sleep aids, but this is not that common. Restoril has been around since 1981 and has a long safety record. I feel more comfortable with it than some of the newer sleep aids such as Ambien (sleep walking, sleep driving, amnesia, etc.). You can develop a tolerance to any sleep aid. This can be avoided by taking it only when you think or know that you will have trouble sleeping, not every night out of habit. Tolerance means that your body thinks that it needs more of the substance to produce the desired effect (in your case, sleep). Good Luck. Answered by Pete Hilzer 1 year ago.

I tried it before and it didn't help me but remember that all of us are different. I've seen people addicted to their restoril and other sleeping meds and it's not a pretty site when they can't get it. I work in a hospital. I see it all the time. Answered by Bo Walkingstick 1 year ago.

I was on it for a few months (as a sleeping aid) It did nothing for me, and I was on the max. dose. Now I take 350mgs of Trazodone, 400mgs of Seroquel and .25mgs of Xanax for sleep. Also take 80mgs of prozac, 100mgs of seroquel, and 375mgs of effexor in the morning. Answered by Lorinda Faler 1 year ago.

Does restoril (sleeping pill) have any side effects?
Asked by Clarine Yepiz 1 year ago.

Restoril tablets are contraindicated for use during pregnancy because of the potential risk to the fetus. The failure of insomnia to remit after 7-10 days of therapy may indicate the presence of primary psychiatric and/or medical illness. Restoril tablets are not to be taken with alcohol or other CNS depressants; until it is known whether there is any carryover effect the next day, patients should exercise caution while doing anything that requires complete alertness, including operating a car, aircraft, or machinery. Reported concerns for Restoril tablets as are common with other benzodiazepines, were the following: drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, and difficulty with coordination. They should be used with caution in severely depressed patients and in those with evidence of latent depression; suicidal tendencies may be present and protective measures may be necessary. Precautions should be observed for patients who are nursing and those with impaired renal or hepatic function, or chronic pulmonary insufficiency. Answered by Signe Bawek 1 year ago.

How long does restoril stay in your system?
i have only taken it once Asked by Suzi Cabos 1 year ago.

Restoril is technically called temazepam It is benzo with CNS depressing properties. It has a short half life. Read the paragraph below for all the details. You can get all the information you want from the link I have given below. Good luck. Orally administered temazepam is well absorbed in man. In a single and multiple dose absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) study, using labelled drug, temazepam was found to have minimal (8%) first-pass metabolism. There were no active metabolites formed and the only significant metabolite present in blood was the O-conjugate. Oral administration of 15 to 45 mg temazepam in man resulted in rapid absorption with significant blood levels achieved in 30 minutes and peak levels at 2 to 3 hours. Drug levels in blood declined in a biphasic manner with a short half-life ranging from 0.4 to 0.6 hours and a terminal half-life from 3.5 to 18 hours (mean 9 hours). The inactive O-conjugate metabolite was formed with a half-life of 10 hours and excreted with a half-life of approximately 2 hours. Thus, O-conjugation is the rate limiting step in the biodisposition. In a multiple dose study, steady-state was approximated after the second daily dose with no evidence of accumulation after 5 consecutive daily doses of 30 mg temazepam. Steady-state plasma levels at 2.5 hours were 382±192 ng/mL. Answered by Mathilde Asif 1 year ago.

I have been taking ambien for insomnia for about 2-3 years now I am on the highest dose and it just doesnt seem to be working as good as it use to. I was hoping someone who has taken both could tell me which one they thought worked better for them and if someone has taken ambien and then switched and if they still slept as good? Answered by Trina Pych 1 year ago.

I have been taking Ambien for awhile now, but not every night. And at some point before I had tried something else, and then Restorill for a short time. It was only for a month or so. Because it really got me dizzy at random times during the day. I mean it would just hit me out of nowhere with spinning rooms and.. I couldn't even stand. Talk about the worst sea sickness ever. It was just.. bad. But I am really sensitive to any medication so my bad experience with Restoril is probably way more than what most people get. Also I do not take sleep pills for insomnia. I have to take them so I can sleep past really bad migraines. So I only take Ambien when I can sense a migraine coming. I'm on a small 10mg dose, but when I take it, it knocks me out for a good 8 to 12 hours. Sometimes longer. And if I'm still in the middle of my migraine when I wake, I'll take another. Which is a special case because you shouldn't do that normally. Anyway, that said, I wonder if Ambien only works so well for me because I don't take it every night. In fact it's only once every couple weeks or so when I get my episodes. That way I guess I am not building an immunity to it as much as most people? I'm not sure. But everyone is different so you can only try and see. Just watch out for spinning rooms... and don't drive until you know for sure how your going to react to Restoril. For obvious reasons.

What sleeping medication is stronger than temezepam (restoril)?
I should also note that I have tried Xanax and Valium which even at the strongest dose had no effect on me. Yep no effect!!!!! That is why i was reluctant to even try restoril seeing as how its is just another benzo. Am I a freak of nature since even valium does not make me tired?? ahah Asked by Reggie Rolan 1 year ago.

What sleeping medication is stronger than temezepam (restoril)? All of them, if given in a high enough dose, will be more potent than any other. Any medication that you choose can be given at a dose that will put you to sleep, although the dose may be dangerous or cause side effects, so we don't do that. What is the best sleeping medicine that actualy works.? They all are somebody's favorite. We are different from one another in every possible way: height, intelligence, preferences, eye color, etc. So, it should be no surprise that some people are susceptible to a medication while others are resistant, and this can only be discovered at the present time by trial and error. Some will say temazepam is too strong but Ambien has no effect, and others will say the opposite, or that only Lunesta works.The practical answer is that you may need to try a few before you're happy. Some options include the following: Proprietary (no generics available) prescrition drugs include: 1. Ambien (or Ambien CR) 2. Lunesta 3. Sonata 4. Rozerem None of those is inexpensive. They're all pricey. Cheaper prescription drugs that come as generic drugsinclude 5. temazepam (Restoril) 6. trazadone (Desiryl) Reasonable OTC (over the counter) choices are 7. melatonin 8. Benedryl (diphenhydramine) - usually 25 -50 mg Good luck Answered by Marlys Merle 1 year ago.

Ask your doctor and it varies based on the person and sleep habits. OTC sleep medications never work very well and are always based on 2 medications (on of them being the exact ingredient in benadryl) As for prescribed medications most come from the Benzodiazipine family which is a family of sedatives used for insomnia or anxiety. The most common of these prescribed as sleep aids are Ambien (zolpidem) or Lunesta (a longer acting version of ambien with a longer onset). More extreme cases of insomnia may be treated with stronger benzodizipines including Ativan, Klonopin and Xanax. Alcohol may seem to help some people fall asleep but according to the experts you get about 1/2 the quality of sleep Answered by Kasandra Mollohan 1 year ago.

Restoril For Sleep Answered by Allegra Balazs 1 year ago.

Someone hasn't been keeping up on their generic approvals. Ambien (Zolpidem) went generic last year, last April or so. There is one non-benzo sleeping medication and that is Rozarem. It works on the melatonin receptor. The best sleep medication is a dependent thing. Some people are more sensitive than others. Answered by Vicente Kammerdiener 1 year ago.

WOW!!! I'm not sure what is 'stronger" the restoril. I take 8 mg of the stuff and am out! I was on it for about a year and wanted to get off benzo's(had to b/c i was pregnant) any way... after the baby was born i started having trouble sleeping again and didn't want to go back on benzo's.. we tried EVERYTHING and nothing put me to sleep. so it was either back to the restoril or nothing... by accident i found a med that actually puts me to sleep better then Ristoril, it's called remeron(sp) and it was prescribed to me for ppd... but it knocks me out! It's worth a shot since your body doesn't react to benzos maybe it will to anti depressants... good luck! Answered by Lesha Braboy 1 year ago.

First off, get rid of the pills. That your major problem there. Pills don't help at all, they just make things worse. If you need some good sleeping, I would suggest that you take some herbal tea. Egyptian camomile would work effectively. 1) Heat some water up 2) Use your Thumb, Index, and Middle finger to PINCH the Camomile, do this twice and put in a mug. 3) pour heated water into mug with the camomile (add a little honey to sweeten) cover with a saucer. 4) Let it sit for at least 5-6 minutes, remove saucer and strain the tea into a different mug. Enjoy!! Answered by Terrell Zaino 1 year ago.

What is the difference between Klonopin and Restoril?
Asked by Justina Krapfl 1 year ago.

Restoril-I mportant safety information: Restoril™ is indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia (generally 7 to 10 days). Klonopin -Klonopin (clonazepam) is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Klonopin (clonazepam) affects chemicals in your brain that may become unbalanced and cause seizures or symptoms of panic disorder. Answered by Jerrold Wasicek 1 year ago.

Restoril is a sedative often prescribed as a sleep aid. Xanax is an anti-anxiety medication, but one of the side effects is sleepiness. I would definitely talk to you doctor about the correct prescription for you! Do not take either of these if they have not been prescribed to you! Answered by Ladonna Tubbs 1 year ago.

I have been taking ambien for insomnia for about 2-3 years now I am on the highest dose and it just doesnt seem to be working as good as it use to. I was hoping someone who has taken both could tell me which one they thought worked better for them and if someone has taken ambien and then switched and if they still slept as good? Answered by Lida Milord 1 year ago.

I have been taking Ambien for awhile now, but not every night. And at some point before I had tried something else, and then Restorill for a short time. It was only for a month or so. Because it really got me dizzy at random times during the day. I mean it would just hit me out of nowhere with spinning rooms and.. I couldn't even stand. Talk about the worst sea sickness ever. It was just.. bad. But I am really sensitive to any medication so my bad experience with Restoril is probably way more than what most people get. Also I do not take sleep pills for insomnia. I have to take them so I can sleep past really bad migraines. So I only take Ambien when I can sense a migraine coming. I'm on a small 10mg dose, but when I take it, it knocks me out for a good 8 to 12 hours. Sometimes longer. And if I'm still in the middle of my migraine when I wake, I'll take another. Which is a special case because you shouldn't do that normally. Anyway, that said, I wonder if Ambien only works so well for me because I don't take it every night. In fact it's only once every couple weeks or so when I get my episodes. That way I guess I am not building an immunity to it as much as most people? I'm not sure. But everyone is different so you can only try and see. Just watch out for spinning rooms... and don't drive until you know for sure how your going to react to Restoril. For obvious reasons. Answered by Hana Rafi 1 year ago.

While chemically Ambien (Zolpidem) and Restoril (Temazepam) work on a similar manners (GABA inhibition) I think they are very different in effect. Ambien works very fast and has a short half life (how long it effects you), around 2 hours. While Restoril does not work very well for falling asleep, it does work well staying asleep as it has a longer half life. This causes many people including myself to feel hung over in the morning. Plus, I only have a problem falling asleep. In fact I read a study not to long ago where Restoril had almost no impact on inducing drowsiness, and was found only beneficial in staying asleep. Both drugs are considered a controlled substance level 4 (lowest). There are more possible interactions and side effects associated with Ambien than there are Restoril. For example, sleep eating, sleep walking, sleep sexing (being serious). I prefer Zolpidem over most sleep aides however, I build tolerance fast and I can't eat when taking it or it's effects are greatly diminished. Answered by Chadwick Treharne 1 year ago.


What sleeping medication is stronger than temezepam (restoril)?
I should also note that I have tried Xanax and Valium which even at the strongest dose had no effect on me. Yep no effect!!!!! That is why i was reluctant to even try restoril seeing as how its is just another benzo. Am I a freak of nature since even valium does not make me tired?? ahah Asked by Kaylene Audas 1 year ago.

What sleeping medication is stronger than temezepam (restoril)? All of them, if given in a high enough dose, will be more potent than any other. Any medication that you choose can be given at a dose that will put you to sleep, although the dose may be dangerous or cause side effects, so we don't do that. What is the best sleeping medicine that actualy works.? They all are somebody's favorite. We are different from one another in every possible way: height, intelligence, preferences, eye color, etc. So, it should be no surprise that some people are susceptible to a medication while others are resistant, and this can only be discovered at the present time by trial and error. Some will say temazepam is too strong but Ambien has no effect, and others will say the opposite, or that only Lunesta works.The practical answer is that you may need to try a few before you're happy. Some options include the following: Proprietary (no generics available) prescrition drugs include: 1. Ambien (or Ambien CR) 2. Lunesta 3. Sonata 4. Rozerem None of those is inexpensive. They're all pricey. Cheaper prescription drugs that come as generic drugsinclude 5. temazepam (Restoril) 6. trazadone (Desiryl) Reasonable OTC (over the counter) choices are 7. melatonin 8. Benedryl (diphenhydramine) - usually 25 -50 mg Good luck Answered by Latarsha Keef 1 year ago.

Ask your doctor and it varies based on the person and sleep habits. OTC sleep medications never work very well and are always based on 2 medications (on of them being the exact ingredient in benadryl) As for prescribed medications most come from the Benzodiazipine family which is a family of sedatives used for insomnia or anxiety. The most common of these prescribed as sleep aids are Ambien (zolpidem) or Lunesta (a longer acting version of ambien with a longer onset). More extreme cases of insomnia may be treated with stronger benzodizipines including Ativan, Klonopin and Xanax. Alcohol may seem to help some people fall asleep but according to the experts you get about 1/2 the quality of sleep Answered by Marcelle Burks 1 year ago.

Someone hasn't been keeping up on their generic approvals. Ambien (Zolpidem) went generic last year, last April or so. There is one non-benzo sleeping medication and that is Rozarem.

First off, get rid of the pills. That your major problem there. Pills don't help at all, they just make things worse. If you need some good sleeping, I would suggest that you take some herbal tea. Egyptian camomile would work effectively. 1) Heat some water up 2) Use your Thumb, Index, and Middle finger to PINCH the Camomile, do this twice and put in a mug. 3) pour heated water into mug with the camomile (add a little honey to sweeten) cover with a saucer. 4) Let it sit for at least 5-6 minutes, remove saucer and strain the tea into a different mug.

While Restoril is "supposed" to work for sleep and Xanax for anxiety, Restoril does little for sleep in my experience whereas Xanax is the most dependable sleep agent I personally know. Perhaps others experience this differently. But to me Restoril (temazepam) stinks for sleep. I can say it is relaxing however. I don't know how it would be for an anxiety medication. Anxiety is better dealt with with longer term non- sedative medications like SSRIs Busaprone, Neurontin. Giving a person a supply of Xanax is rather out of date. But I like it.

Not really. They will both calm you down, but restoril is used for insomnia. Xanax is good for anxiety and panic disorder. Both medications are benzodiazapenes but xanax works quicker than restoril.

How addictive is Restoril?
I would like to know if anyone has had personal experiences with this medication and perhaps knows about its addiction potential. Asked by Bridgett Hubbard 1 year ago.

All benzodiazepines are addicting, however, Restoril is not as addicting as the others such as Valium and Xanax. Restoril is strictly a hypnotic, meaning it induces and maintains sleep, where most of the other benzos are anxiolytic. Anxiolytic benzos cause a euphoria or "buzz" which leads to dependence and addiction. Benzos other than Restoril for the most part have longer half-lives than Restoril, making the effects last longer. There are 2 types of addiction - physical and psychological. All sleep aids can be psychologically addicting, meaning the patient cannot sleep until that pill is taken. Sometimes people can become physically addicted to sleep aids, but this is not that common. Restoril has been around since 1981 and has a long safety record. I feel more comfortable with it than some of the newer sleep aids such as Ambien (sleep walking, sleep driving, amnesia, etc.). You can develop a tolerance to any sleep aid. This can be avoided by taking it only when you think or know that you will have trouble sleeping, not every night out of habit. Tolerance means that your body thinks that it needs more of the substance to produce the desired effect (in your case, sleep). Good Luck. Answered by Patrick Hentze 1 year ago.

Does restoril (sleeping pill) have any side effects?
Asked by Nathalie Vanhook 1 year ago.

Restoril tablets are contraindicated for use during pregnancy because of the potential risk to the fetus. The failure of insomnia to remit after 7-10 days of therapy may indicate the presence of primary psychiatric and/or medical illness. Restoril tablets are not to be taken with alcohol or other CNS depressants; until it is known whether there is any carryover effect the next day, patients should exercise caution while doing anything that requires complete alertness, including operating a car, aircraft, or machinery. Reported concerns for Restoril tablets as are common with other benzodiazepines, were the following: drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, and difficulty with coordination. They should be used with caution in severely depressed patients and in those with evidence of latent depression; suicidal tendencies may be present and protective measures may be necessary. Precautions should be observed for patients who are nursing and those with impaired renal or hepatic function, or chronic pulmonary insufficiency. Answered by Arianne Reishus 1 year ago.

How long does restoril stay in your system?
i have only taken it once Asked by Heriberto Kleckner 1 year ago.

Restoril is technically called temazepam It is benzo with CNS depressing properties. It has a short half life. Read the paragraph below for all the details. You can get all the information you want from the link I have given below. Good luck. Orally administered temazepam is well absorbed in man. In a single and multiple dose absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) study, using labelled drug, temazepam was found to have minimal (8%) first-pass metabolism. There were no active metabolites formed and the only significant metabolite present in blood was the O-conjugate. Oral administration of 15 to 45 mg temazepam in man resulted in rapid absorption with significant blood levels achieved in 30 minutes and peak levels at 2 to 3 hours. Drug levels in blood declined in a biphasic manner with a short half-life ranging from 0.4 to 0.6 hours and a terminal half-life from 3.5 to 18 hours (mean 9 hours). The inactive O-conjugate metabolite was formed with a half-life of 10 hours and excreted with a half-life of approximately 2 hours. Thus, O-conjugation is the rate limiting step in the biodisposition. In a multiple dose study, steady-state was approximated after the second daily dose with no evidence of accumulation after 5 consecutive daily doses of 30 mg temazepam. Steady-state plasma levels at 2.5 hours were 382±192 ng/mL. Answered by Annabell Rifenbery 1 year ago.

Does restoril (sleeping pill) have any side effects?
Asked by Anisa Fakhoury 1 year ago.

Restoril tablets are contraindicated for use during pregnancy because of the potential risk to the fetus. The failure of insomnia to remit after 7-10 days of therapy may indicate the presence of primary psychiatric and/or medical illness. Restoril tablets are not to be taken with alcohol or other CNS depressants; until it is known whether there is any carryover effect the next day, patients should exercise caution while doing anything that requires complete alertness, including operating a car, aircraft, or machinery. Reported concerns for Restoril tablets as are common with other benzodiazepines, were the following: drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, and difficulty with coordination. They should be used with caution in severely depressed patients and in those with evidence of latent depression; suicidal tendencies may be present and protective measures may be necessary. Precautions should be observed for patients who are nursing and those with impaired renal or hepatic function, or chronic pulmonary insufficiency. Answered by Doug Taccariello 1 year ago.

How long does restoril stay in your system?
i have only taken it once Asked by Celestina Revere 1 year ago.

Restoril is technically called temazepam It is benzo with CNS depressing properties. It has a short half life. Read the paragraph below for all the details. You can get all the information you want from the link I have given below. Good luck. Orally administered temazepam is well absorbed in man. In a single and multiple dose absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) study, using labelled drug, temazepam was found to have minimal (8%) first-pass metabolism. There were no active metabolites formed and the only significant metabolite present in blood was the O-conjugate. Oral administration of 15 to 45 mg temazepam in man resulted in rapid absorption with significant blood levels achieved in 30 minutes and peak levels at 2 to 3 hours. Drug levels in blood declined in a biphasic manner with a short half-life ranging from 0.4 to 0.6 hours and a terminal half-life from 3.5 to 18 hours (mean 9 hours). The inactive O-conjugate metabolite was formed with a half-life of 10 hours and excreted with a half-life of approximately 2 hours. Thus, O-conjugation is the rate limiting step in the biodisposition. In a multiple dose study, steady-state was approximated after the second daily dose with no evidence of accumulation after 5 consecutive daily doses of 30 mg temazepam. Steady-state plasma levels at 2.5 hours were 382±192 ng/mL. Answered by Kristofer Drakes 1 year ago.

Answered by Joslyn Kuchta 1 year ago.

I have been taking Ambien for awhile now, but not every night. And at some point before I had tried something else, and then Restorill for a short time. It was only for a month or so. Because it really got me dizzy at random times during the day. I mean it would just hit me out of nowhere with spinning rooms and.. I couldn't even stand. Talk about the worst sea sickness ever. It was just.. bad. But I am really sensitive to any medication so my bad experience with Restoril is probably way more than what most people get. Also I do not take sleep pills for insomnia. I have to take them so I can sleep past really bad migraines. So I only take Ambien when I can sense a migraine coming. I'm on a small 10mg dose, but when I take it, it knocks me out for a good 8 to 12 hours. Sometimes longer. And if I'm still in the middle of my migraine when I wake, I'll take another. Which is a special case because you shouldn't do that normally. Anyway, that said, I wonder if Ambien only works so well for me because I don't take it every night. In fact it's only once every couple weeks or so when I get my episodes. That way I guess I am not building an immunity to it as much as most people? I'm not sure. But everyone is different so you can only try and see. Just watch out for spinning rooms... and don't drive until you know for sure how your going to react to Restoril. For obvious reasons. Answered by Artie Olesnevich 1 year ago.

While chemically Ambien (Zolpidem) and Restoril (Temazepam) work on a similar manners (GABA inhibition) I think they are very different in effect. Ambien works very fast and has a short half life (how long it effects you), around 2 hours. While Restoril does not work very well for falling asleep, it does work well staying asleep as it has a longer half life. This causes many people including myself to feel hung over in the morning. Plus, I only have a problem falling asleep. In fact I read a study not to long ago where Restoril had almost no impact on inducing drowsiness, and was found only beneficial in staying asleep. Both drugs are considered a controlled substance level 4 (lowest). There are more possible interactions and side effects associated with Ambien than there are Restoril. For example, sleep eating, sleep walking, sleep sexing (being serious). I prefer Zolpidem over most sleep aides however, I build tolerance fast and I can't eat when taking it or it's effects are greatly diminished. Answered by Song Baldrige 1 year ago.


What sleeping medication is stronger than temezepam (restoril)?
I should also note that I have tried Xanax and Valium which even at the strongest dose had no effect on me. Yep no effect!!!!! That is why i was reluctant to even try restoril seeing as how its is just another benzo. Am I a freak of nature since even valium does not make me tired?? ahah Asked by Katherina Spraque 1 year ago.

What sleeping medication is stronger than temezepam (restoril)? All of them, if given in a high enough dose, will be more potent than any other. Any medication that you choose can be given at a dose that will put you to sleep, although the dose may be dangerous or cause side effects, so we don't do that. What is the best sleeping medicine that actualy works.? They all are somebody's favorite. We are different from one another in every possible way: height, intelligence, preferences, eye color, etc. So, it should be no surprise that some people are susceptible to a medication while others are resistant, and this can only be discovered at the present time by trial and error. Some will say temazepam is too strong but Ambien has no effect, and others will say the opposite, or that only Lunesta works.The practical answer is that you may need to try a few before you're happy. Some options include the following: Proprietary (no generics available) prescrition drugs include: 1. Ambien (or Ambien CR) 2. Lunesta 3. Sonata 4. Rozerem None of those is inexpensive. They're all pricey. Cheaper prescription drugs that come as generic drugsinclude 5. temazepam (Restoril) 6. trazadone (Desiryl) Reasonable OTC (over the counter) choices are 7. melatonin 8. Benedryl (diphenhydramine) - usually 25 -50 mg Good luck Answered by Delilah Gouchie 1 year ago.

Ask your doctor and it varies based on the person and sleep habits. OTC sleep medications never work very well and are always based on 2 medications (on of them being the exact ingredient in benadryl) As for prescribed medications most come from the Benzodiazipine family which is a family of sedatives used for insomnia or anxiety. The most common of these prescribed as sleep aids are Ambien (zolpidem) or Lunesta (a longer acting version of ambien with a longer onset). More extreme cases of insomnia may be treated with stronger benzodizipines including Ativan, Klonopin and Xanax. Alcohol may seem to help some people fall asleep but according to the experts you get about 1/2 the quality of sleep Answered by Christene Sandahl 1 year ago.

Restoril For Sleep Answered by Jefferey Phaup 1 year ago.

Someone hasn't been keeping up on their generic approvals. Ambien (Zolpidem) went generic last year, last April or so. There is one non-benzo sleeping medication and that is Rozarem. It works on the melatonin receptor. The best sleep medication is a dependent thing. Some people are more sensitive than others. Answered by Dixie Novell 1 year ago.

WOW!!! I'm not sure what is 'stronger" the restoril. I take 8 mg of the stuff and am out! I was on it for about a year and wanted to get off benzo's(had to b/c i was pregnant) any way... after the baby was born i started having trouble sleeping again and didn't want to go back on benzo's.. we tried EVERYTHING and nothing put me to sleep. so it was either back to the restoril or nothing... by accident i found a med that actually puts me to sleep better then Ristoril, it's called remeron(sp) and it was prescribed to me for ppd... but it knocks me out! It's worth a shot since your body doesn't react to benzos maybe it will to anti depressants... good luck! Answered by Ashly Colella 1 year ago.

First off, get rid of the pills. That your major problem there. Pills don't help at all, they just make things worse. If you need some good sleeping, I would suggest that you take some herbal tea. Egyptian camomile would work effectively. 1) Heat some water up 2) Use your Thumb, Index, and Middle finger to PINCH the Camomile, do this twice and put in a mug. 3) pour heated water into mug with the camomile (add a little honey to sweeten) cover with a saucer. 4) Let it sit for at least 5-6 minutes, remove saucer and strain the tea into a different mug. Enjoy!! Answered by Blythe Garibay 1 year ago.

Will xanex show up differently than restoril on a drug screen?
A friend of mine took a xanex due to extreme stress at work then he was randomly drug tested. He does not have a script for the xanex but he does have a script for Restoril. Since they are in the same class, will the Restoril script cover it. Asked by Mercedes Arambuia 1 year ago.

What is the difference between Klonopin and Restoril?
Asked by Siu Rusley 1 year ago.

Restoril-I mportant safety information: Restoril™ is indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia (generally 7 to 10 days). Klonopin -Klonopin (clonazepam) is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Klonopin (clonazepam) affects chemicals in your brain that may become unbalanced and cause seizures or symptoms of panic disorder. Answered by Avery Kha 1 year ago.

Restoril is a sedative often prescribed as a sleep aid. Xanax is an anti-anxiety medication, but one of the side effects is sleepiness. I would definitely talk to you doctor about the correct prescription for you! Do not take either of these if they have not been prescribed to you! Answered by Roxy Pjetrovic 1 year ago.
