I have restoril and halcion (triazolam). Ne work, is it safe to take together?

I have restoril and  halcion (triazolam). Ne work, is it safe to take together?

Not a good idea: Halcion is triazolam, and Restoril is temazepam. Both are benzodiazepine sleeping pills. Their effects are very similar — Restoril lasts longer — and would add together if taken at the same time. It is considered poor medical practice to take multiple medications that do the same thing: the results are less predictable and more drug interactions can result. Both meds are habit-forming too. ...Read more

I use restoril (temazepam) every night that i don't fall asleep within one hour. Why can't i just continue this?

I use restoril (temazepam) every night that i don't fall asleep within one hour.  Why can't i just continue this?

For awhile: You could, for awhile -- but chances are that you'll eventually need a higher dose for the same effect. Have you looked into why you're having difficulty with your sleep to begin with? Anxiety/worry? Depression? Sleep apnea? Alcohol use? Too much caffeine or other stimulants? Noisy or hot bedroom? Uncomfortable mattress? Leaving tv on in your room? A sleep eval may lead to more help. ...Read more

I was prescribed percocet and restoril (temazepam). I took 30 mg of each at once by accident. Can this kill me? Im a little scared at the moment. I took them about 30 minutes apart.

I : I hope you are well since this is a question from a couple of days ago. When it comes to an overdose of medications, i'd err on the cautious side and would advise a patient to go to the nearest er. I don't get how you can accidentally ingest controlled medications like opioid painkillers and sedative-hypnotics such as the two pills you mentioned. I would begin to suspect intentional overdose to be quite frank. ...Read more
