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

Is the drug temazepam ever used for anxiety?

Is the drug temazepam ever used for anxiety?

Not usually: Temazepam (restoril) is used as a sedative-hypnotic, for people with insomnia. I've never heard of anyone using it for anxiety alone. It can act in 30-60 minutes, and if you took it in daytime you could be asleep rather than merely calm! so i wouldn't suggest doing that. There are better choices for anxiety -- especially having a good evaluation so the best choices can be made. ...Read more

How many mg of temazepam will equal the high of one xanax (alprazolam)?

Not comparable: Your question doesn't make sense on 2 levels. First, we'd need to know the mg of xanax (alprazolam) we're comparing to temazepam. More important, "highs" from different drugs are not comparable. Although both are benzodiazepines, temazepam is very sedating, Alprazolam isn't. They'll never be "equal." and neither is safe to take to get high. ...Read more
