Temazepam (Definition)

Temazepam (restoril) -- a benzodiazepine -- is a sedative/hypnotic used for the short-term (7-10 days) treatment of insomnia. It helps you fall asleep faster, decreases the # of times you awaken during the night, & gives you longer periods of uninterrupted sleep. It produces a calming effect. Take 30 min before bedtime. To avoid temporary memory loss, be sure to get 7-8 hrs ...Read more

Can I take ativan and restoril (temazepam) together?

Not advised: Ativan (lorazepam) and Restoril (temazepam) are both benzodiazepine tranquilizers. Their effects can add together in a potentially dangerous way. That said, sometimes doctors prescribe both, with careful instructions to take them at different times (Ativan during the day, Restoril only at night). Since "benzos" are addictive, taking 2 different kinds is doubly risky. ...Read more

Can you take lorazepam 1mg and temazepam 30mg together?

Can you take lorazepam 1mg and temazepam 30mg together?

Not a good idea: Not sure why you would want to do this. Lorazepam and temazepam are both benzodiazepines. Temazepam is more sedating and used for insomnia. Lorazepam is less sedating and commonly used for anxiety or agitation, but they both have the same mechanism of action and both are addictive. The combined amount you you describe is a very high dose of benzodiazepine. ...Read more

I have 5 mg Valium and 10mg temazepam but each alone do nothing can I take one of each together?

Why and when?: The most important question is why are you taking these medications & are they the most effective ones for your symptoms? Both are benzodiazepines. Temazepam or Restoril (temazepam) is usually used as a sleep medication & Valium is a tranquilizer that lasts 4-6 hours. Both can be habit forming. There are other medications that can be considered as well as therapy. Obviously talk it through with your do doctor ...Read more

I was perscribed by my psychiatrist 30 mg temazepam an 10mgs of Valium to be taken together at night. Is she wrong for doing this? Severe night anxy

Troubling: I don't know you or your clinical situation, so I am hesitant to call any other doctor "wrong." there are reasons she could be prescribing this way, but using 2 benzos at the same time could add up to more sedation than either of you wants. If your anxiety is still that intense, you may need additional non-medication treatments for it, as well as consult with another psychiatrist on your meds. ...Read more

Can you take trazadone 50 mg, temazepam 30 mg 1.5 grams of l-tryptophan and 325 mg of magnesium all together?

Can you take trazadone 50 mg, temazepam 30 mg 1.5 grams of l-tryptophan and 325 mg of magnesium all together?

Probably but why: YOu can probably take all this with little in the way of harm. I feel that if you need the trazodone that is fine. The temazepam might be all you need. Would not use the tryptophan as the temazepam and the trazodone should be all you need. I would skip the magnesium. ...Read more

I have just taken 45mg codeine and 5mg of temazepam together, by mistake. Is there a risk if I go to sleep I might stop breathing?

Codeine Temazepam: This really depends on whether you have been on these medications for a long time or not. Also knowing the doses makes no difference as the medications work differently on people. Judging from the amounts you took in most people this will just make you very tired and sleepy. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Temazepam and Cymbalta and Flouxetine together? I take Cymbalta in the AM, but the other two would be at night.

Not really: Cymbalta and Fluoxetine taken together (even at different times of the day) can increase the risk of serotonin syndrome and a rare condition called SIADH which causes low sodium. Temazepam and Fluoxetine are additive in causing psychomotor depression and respiratory depression. This would depend on dose and duration. ...Read more

Review with doctor: Klonopin and Restoril (temazepam) are similar chemically, sedating, anti-anxiety. Better to take one or the other.

Is it safe to take all thse meds. Together? TEMAZEPAM, LEVOTHROXIN, Alprazolam, SERTRALINE, LISINOP

The combo of three anxiety meds: temazepam, alprazolam, and sertraline, should be done with good medical supervision. Ask your doctor about non-drug ways of treating anxiety. ...Read more

Can you take halcion (triazolam) and restoril together at the same time?

Can you take halcion (triazolam) and restoril together at the same time?

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

Is 75 mg of temazepam too much?

For what?: The usual dose of temazepam is 7.5 to 30 mg at bedtime, to treat insomnia short term. So 75 mg is 2.5 times the highest recommended dose. There might be other reasons such a high dose is used, but taking this much might indicate an addiction, too. It depends on the situation. Temazepam is not approved for long-term treatment of insomnia. ...Read more

What will 60mg of temazepam do?

Be more sedating: Than 30mg, have a greater chance of leaving you hungover the next day because of its long half life and it can worsen sleep apnea if you have that. In fact, if you have untreated central sleep apnea it could make you stop breathing, and that means the long dirt nap if the apnea lasts long enough. Think of reggie white who died in is sleep of apnea alone, probably without the assistance of meds. ...Read more

How much is too much of restoril (temazepam)?

How much is too much of restoril (temazepam)?

Caution: More important than absolute dose of restoril, (temazepam) which shouldn't exceed 30 mg at night, are frequency and duration of use. With daily use for over a month you can become tolerant to its benefits for sleep and anxiety, but experience withdrawal if you don't take it, so you use it to avoid withdrawal even though it no longer helps. Avoid using more than 4 nights/week; try to use for under 3 months. ...Read more
