Very drowsy: In my practice, the average dose of Restoril (temazepam) is 15 - 30 mgs at bedtime. Depending on a multitude of your personal health factors, you may get a good night's sleep, you may sleep for 24 hours, you may be extremely drowsy the next day. A lot also depends on what other medications you are taking.

Why do you want to : Take this high a dose, when a normal dose is 7.5 to 30 mg per night? Note that you have bipolar disorder ; anxiety. This type of medication should only be taken as directed. 90 mg of Restoril (temazepam) would be an overdose. Do you have suicidal thoughts or are you just desperate to sleep? If you are having thoughts about killing yourself, get seen at the nearest emergency room now. Have a friend or.
