3 doctors agree

In brief: No not safe.

Need work up at sleep center. You have become tolerant to the effects of the drug.
You should be tapered off of it and evaluated.

Very serious and unsafe behavior

Please consult the doctor immediately. You are running a very high risk and require evaluation in a medical center.

In brief: NO

I agree with dr. Nemeroff that taking more Restoril (temazepam) is not safe.
Usually people take this for sleep disturbance, which may come from multiple different sources. Depression is a big category -- and there are also primary sleep disorders too. You are now tolerant to restoril, (temazepam) and need to work with a sleep medicine doctor. Many such doctors are also psychiatrists. http://www.aasmnet.org/.
