The recommended dose for temazepam is 1-2 pills, but I have to take 5-6 in order to fall asleep. Is this safe?

The recommended dose for temazepam is 1-2 pills, but I have to take 5-6 in order to fall asleep. Is this safe?

Likely unwise!: There is really not enough information to give you the best feedback. Temazepam comes in doses of 7.5, 15, 22.5 & 30 mg. The maximum on label dose is 30 mg. So you could be taking anywhere from 45 mg up to 180 mg. I latter dose would certainly make me uncomfortable. It sound likely that your initial insomnia needs to be carefully explored and other modalities utilized to help you sleep. ...Read more

Bupropion XL,SR both make it hard to fall asleep. Can I take 100mg-IR 3times every 4hours (the last dose at 3PM) so the effect subsides by 10PM?

Bupropion XL,SR both make it hard to fall asleep. Can I take 100mg-IR 3times every 4hours (the last dose at 3PM) so the effect subsides by 10PM?

Are you taking in AM: I have found most of my patients don't have problems falling asleep if they take their dose first thing in the morning. If that still causes you problems, use of the immediate release bupropion may be helpful, but am not sure that it would "wear off" even if you took the last dose at 3 PM. Your prescriber and your pharmacist are the best consultants on these questions - ask one or both of them. ...Read more
