Does 30 mg temazepam get you hi?
found in my childs room. do they get you hi? Asked by Kristina Hinh 4 months ago.

Temazepam is a prescription drug prescribed for short-term use of acute sleeplessness or insomnia. It is a dangerous drug in the sense that children should never use it, without the doctor's okay. Here are some quotes from Wikipedia on the subject: "Temazepam (marketed under brand names Restoril, Euhypnos, Normison, Remestan, Tenox and Norkotral) is an intermediate-acting 3-hydroxy benzodiazepine. It is generally prescribed for the short-term treatment of severe or debilitating sleeplessness in patients who have difficulty falling asleep or maintaining sleep. In addition, temazepam has anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, and skeletal muscle relaxant properties." "Temazepam is a hypnotic agent. In sleep laboratory studies, temazepam significantly decreased the number of nightly awakenings. Temazepam is officially indicated for severe insomnia and other severe or disabling sleep disorders. The prescribing guidelines limit prescribing of hypnotics to two-four weeks due to concerns of tolerance and physical dependence." "Use of temazepam should be avoided, when possible, in individuals with the following conditions: Ataxia Severe hypoventilation Acute narrow-angle glaucoma Severe hepatic deficiencies (hepatitis and liver cirrhosis decrease elimination by a factor of 2) Severe renal deficiencies (e.g. patients on dialysis) Severe sleep apnea Severe depression, particularly when accompanied by suicidal tendencies Acute intoxication with alcohol, narcotics, or other psychoactive substances Myasthenia gravis Hypersensitivity or allergy to any drug in the benzodiazepine class" Good luck to you.

Hi! I wanted to ask if Restoril (Temazepam) is a good sleeping pill? Thank you.?
Asked by Yuko Dietzel 4 months ago.

Temazepam is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Temazepam is used to induce sleep and cause relaxation. Before taking temazepam, talk to your doctor if you: have kidney disease; have liver disease; have asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, or another respiratory disease; or are depressed or have suicidal thoughts. You may not be able to take temazepam, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during treatment if you have any of the conditions listed above. Do not take temazepam if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether temazepam passes into breast milk. Take each dose with a full glass of water. Take temazepam just before you get into bed. Temazepam will cause drowsiness, and falling could occur if the dose too long before getting into bed. Do not take more than is prescribed for you. Temazepam may be habit forming. Physical and/or psychological dependence can occur, and withdrawal effects are possible if the medication is stopped suddenly after prolonged or high-dose treatment. Do not stop taking temazepam suddenly. Since temazepam is usually taken as needed, missing a dose is not usually a problem. Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Temazepam will cause drowsiness and may cause dizziness. If you experience drowsiness or dizziness, avoid these activities. T Use alcohol cautiously. Alcohol may increase drowsiness and dizziness while taking temazepam. Temazepam may increase the effects of other drugs that cause drowsiness or dizziness, including antidepressants, alcohol, sedatives (used to treat insomnia), other pain relievers, anxiety medicines, muscle relaxants, and antihistamines. If you experience any of the following serious side effects, stop taking temazepam and seek emergency medical attention or contact your doctor immediately: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, face, or tongue; or hives); sores in the mouth or throat; yellowing of the skin or eyes; a rash; hallucinations or severe confusion; or changes in vision. Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to take temazepam and talk to your doctor if you experience drowsiness, dizziness, or clumsiness; depression; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation; difficulty urinating; vivid dreams; headache; dry mouth; decreased sex drive; or changes in behavior.

HELP!! Temazepam Overdose!?
Friend took 190 MG of it about 4 hrs ago, is she going to be alright and should I call the ambulance? Asked by Lorean Cassaro 4 months ago.

from wikipedia: Overdose Generic temazepam 10 mg tablets (UK)Main article: Benzodiazepine overdose Overdosage of temazepam results in increasing CNS effects, including: Somnolence (difficulty staying awake) Mental confusion Respiratory depression Hypotension Impaired motor functions Impaired or absent reflexes Impaired coordination Impaired balance Dizziness Coma Death Temazepam had the highest rate of drug intoxication, including overdose, among the common benzodiazepines in cases with and without combination with alcohol in a 1985 study.[44] Temazepam and nitrazepam were the two benzodiazepines most commonly detected in overdose-related deaths in an Australian study of drug deaths.[45] A 1993 British study found temazepam to have the highest number of deaths per million prescriptions among medications commonly prescribed in the 1980s (11.9, versus 5.9 for benzodiazepines overall, taken with or without alcohol).[46] A 1995 Australian study of patients admitted to hospital after benzodiazepine overdose corroborated these results, and found temazepam overdose much more likely to lead to coma in comparison to other benzodiazepines (odds ratio 1.86). The authors note that several factors, such as differences in potency, receptor affinity, and rate of absorption between benzodiazepines could explain this higher toxicity.[44] Although benzodiazepines have a high therapeutic index, temazepam is one of the more dangerous of this class of drugs. The combination of alcohol and temazepam makes death by alcohol poisoning more likely.[47] And, in answer to your question, NO, she's not going to be alright. They will probably succeed in their quest to leave the planet. Answered by Darron Bouman 4 months ago.

There's continually a probability any one would die that approach, however on this case, it is extremely not likely...certainly if he woke 12hrs after the truth. He'd've had his difficulty lengthy earlier than that if there used to be one available. He'll by and large have a helluva hangover and be "indisposed" for an afternoon or two.

Can anyone give me negative side-effects when taking Temazepam?
My wife is on 60 mg for sleep. She wakes up a lot at night still. The chemo she finished a few months ago threw her into menapause, which isn't helping things. Thanks for any experiences you may have had with this drug. Asked by Raelene Gurnsey 4 months ago.

Temazepam is a Benzodiazepine. Which means that part of the drug causes sleep and pleasure. This means also that one of the side effects is habit formation. Anyone that takes this much Temazepam for any length of time will develop dependence (they feel like crap when they don't have it for sleep). There are other meds that she probably should try to assist with sleep and she could possibly withdraw some from the Temazepam. Having cancer there probably is no big reason that she needs to worry about dependence though. With my patients I tell them that dependence on temazepam is the least of their concerns given that they have cancer. Answered by Viola Pembroke 4 months ago.

Does Temazepam work for anxiety?
Asked by Dionna Cung 4 months ago.

Normally Temazepam is usually prescribed to help people sleep, and the main physical effects of the drug are as a muscle relaxant. Depending on how you metabolize drugs if you have a normal dose of Temazepam and you stay awake you may feel less anxious and start to feel relaxed and sleepy. At higher doses the effects are similar to alcohol - you may feel less inhibited towards other people. Your behavior may be exaggerated (people who are using Temazepam are often very talkative or over-excited, sometimes even hostile or aggressive) and judgment is impaired. You may have a false sense of confidence, or even believe you are invincible or invisible. It is also likely you will only remember 1/2 of what you say and do. You would probably we wise to talk to you doctor about something else like Xanax or Ativan for anxiety. It is wise to ask medical questions in the category of health as that is where they fit. Asking before you take the drug shows me that you care about your health. Answered by Echo Stebbins 4 months ago.

It's a sleeping pill,but it should help relieve anxiety,at least while your sleeping! For daytime,you would need a different medication,as the temazepam would make you too drowsy. Answered by Karina Harvest 4 months ago.

Answered by Napoleon Jernstrom 4 months ago.

10 mg of temazepam is a very low dose. Actually in studies people who took 10 mg of temazepam showed no significant improvement in sleep. Studies also found that 30-40 mg at night was the most effective dose (typically larger amounts are not more effective) and it significantly increased total sleep time, it decreased sleep latency (time to fall asleep), it decreased the number of nocturnal awakenings, and was generally well tolerated. In Canada, where I live and practice medicine, the lowest dose of temazepam we have is 15 mg (along with 30 mg). The maximum dose of temazepam according to the prescribing information for temazepam from various countries is as follows: The United Kingdom lists 30-40 mg as the maximum dose Australia lists 30 mg The Republic of Ireland lists 30-40 mg The United States lists 30 mg Canada lists 30 mg South Africa lists 30 mg My best advice would be to talk to your doctor about increasing the dose of temazepam to 30 mg since that dose is significantly effective, unlike 10 mg. In addition some people simply don't respond well to certain medications and it may be that temazepam is not the best medication for you (but at a higher dose it should work). There are a number of other sleeping medications (although I am not sure where you live and each country has different medication available). Other common sleeping medications include zopiclone, zolpidem, nitrazepam, flunitrazepam, triazolam, and zaleplon. Also certain medications are best for sleep onset insomnia (hard time falling asleep) such as zaleplon, triazolam, zolpidem, others for sleep maintenance insomnia (hard time staying asleep), and some are effective for both problems such as zopiclone, nitrazepam, and flunitrazepam. Temazepam is effective for both problems but it is particularly effective for sleep maintenance insomnia. Answered by Nicola Pinch 4 months ago.

I was prescribed temazepam many years ago and the dosage was 20mg per night but I had to increase this to 30mg as 20mg simply did not work. I guess there will come a day when I'll have to up the intake to 40mg to get some sleep. Answered by Altha Cosenza 4 months ago.

Yes sleeping problems and depression. Not a good drug to be on for any length of time. It's the sort of thing you might get prescribed before going to the dentist or a minor op. Try facing your problems without these drugs if possible. Ask your doctor what other help is available as some GPs just hand out drugs when you might be better off without them. Whatever your problem it will still be there when you stop taking the drugs. Answered by Orville Olazabal 4 months ago.

I have been prescribed Temazepam by a doctor after taking at least three hours to fall asleep each night, and have been told to take 5mg a night for a few nights, then if that doesn't work take a full tablet for a few nights. I am a little worried about the side effects though: 1. How badly will they affect my brain? I have lots of tests on soon (within a week) and exams coming up in a little while, and can't afford to be forgetting stuff in tests. 2. I am terrified of becoming addicted, and I have heard that you can get addicted within a few days. Is this true, and how long will it take before I become dependent? Thanks Answered by Rhea Squitieri 4 months ago.

Temazepam is a Benzo class drug, therefore it does have addictive properties. I myself have been on Temazepam, Clonazepam, Xanax and Ativan all at different times in my life. Not once did I ever feel any side effects of withdrawal whatsoever. It is really all about your will power. Temazepam itself is one of the "more" addictive of the Benzos but I have taken it and the only thing I disliked about it was that I woke up really drowsy after a good night's sleep. That was after taking my regular dose of 30mg. The lower you are when you stop, the less withdrawal symptoms you will feel, if any. Drowsiness is just a side effect of all sleep aids though. Good luck fellow insomniac! Answered by Noel Appelt 4 months ago.


I'm 16 and want to try Temazepam 30mg and to know if it's safe.?
I've done Valium "The Blues" and was just curious if Temazepam 30mg would kill me or something. I've been taking benzos for about 2 weeks. Asked by Emery Kowalewski 4 months ago.

Temazepam is an anti-anxiety medication, in the same class as valium, that is also used for short term (7-10 days) for Insomnia. 30 mg is the highest dosage available. Your doctor if prescribed would probably start you off with a lower dosage since it is a narcotic. The most commonly noted side effects associated with Temazepam are excessive sleepiness, dizziness, weakness, and unsteadiness. Other side effects include a feeling of depression, loss of orientation, headache, and sleep disturbances. Like all benzodiazepines, temazepam can cause physical dependence. Suddenly stopping temazepam after a few months of daily use may be associated with a feeling of loss of self-worth, agitation, and insomnia. If Temazepam is taken continuously for longer than a few months, stopping treatment suddenly may produce seizures, tremors, muscle cramping, vomiting, and/or sweating. Therefore, discontinuation usually is accomplished by slowly reducing the daily dose. Answered by Parthenia Kazeck 4 months ago.


I was giving Temazepam from my doctor i am scared to take it ?
will i have any side effects if i just take the half a tablet? I had medicine that can cause hallucinations and i did not like it not one bit. I was 4 and was up all night freaking out it was 4 pain when was in the hospital 1.My moms like if not maybe they can give us something else. Asked by Bernita Klockars 4 months ago.

I have other health issues so i am calling my other doctor who deals with my other health issues just to make sure i can take it. Only reason i have not been sleeping is because i was just diagnosed with bad bab anxiety maybe temporary anxiety because i been having a lot of stress. If temporary anxiety is even possible. I never tooken a sleeping pill b4, the only sleeping pill i ever tooken was maybe my pain medicine that makes me drowsy. That's what i took now till i call my doctor tomorrow. Answered by Dario Denniston 4 months ago.

Temazepam is not a very powerful benzodiazepine. You should have nothing to worry about. Just try not to take more than recommended dose or for longer than doc suggests. You will not hallucinate. Imagine the abuse-potential if they were hallucinogenic? On a side note, temazepam was a huge problem around 1995-2000 when the drug was presented as a small football-shaped, gel-filled capsule. People gently heated these gel-caps, inserted a hypodermic syringe, withdrew the ethylene-glycol solution and injected it. In many cases this would then solidify in the persons vein and if they were unlucky, they would end up losing fingers, sometimes the entire hand. Hope I didn't freak you out there. Swallowing a temazepam or two should induce a nice snooze and nothing more. Answered by Camie Other 4 months ago.

Pretty weak stuff. Beer is stronger, but you have to get up early to go pee. - No it is not strong stuff like a painkiller or anything. It is not some sort of knock out pill. Answered by Adrianna Barratt 4 months ago.
