Review by Sleep deprived:

Restoril (temazepam) for Insomnia: I took 15mg when 1st prescribed the medication, it did nothing. The 2nd night I tried 30mg, it worked, but the 3rd night I tried 30....still up, I took another 15mg. Hope to feel sleepy soon.

For Insomnia: I have been taking this medication for 30 days as a trial to replace what I had been taking. It takes a good 10 hours before I feel sleepy. I now take it at 4pm and go to bed around 3 am. Once it works, I sleep great with it. I am considering taking it earlier in the day. Kind of crazy isn't it ?

Review by Dc23 (taken for 1 to 6 months):

For Insomnia: Out of no where I started developing insomnia. After 2 days straight of no sleep I went to the doctors and prescribed me zopiclone. Worked the first 3 to 4 days then wore off so he prescribed me temazepam which helped me get to sleep and stay asleep. Took it for around a week then ran out. Didn't want to go back and get more as I knew I would develop a tolerance for the medicine and become addicted. It was then back to nights of no sleep.

For Insomnia: Temazepam works fantastic for insomnia. I am not really sure why I developed insomnia; It just happened. If you don't mind using a prescription medicine, it's the best for insomnia. No side effects to report, and no next-day drowsiness. I use the lowest dose- 7.5mg, with melatonin, because melatonin is a powerful antioxidant, and I sleep great, feeling refreshed in the morning. I thank God for both temazepam and melatonin.

Restoril (temazepam) for Insomnia: This is the best sleeping pill I've ever tried. 30 years now, and still no tolerance issues. I wake up refreshed, no hangover, unlike all the other sleeping pills, as temazepam is very mild, yet it keeps you asleep. I take 15 or 30 mg, depending how I feel. I have tried Halcion and Dalmane, which weren't very effective. I also tried Ambien in the mid 90s and had horrible sleepwalking episodes. This has never happened with Restoril.

For Insomnia: By 3rd night of use, it became ineffective. My system built up tolerance quickly. Fourth night I took 40 mgs and only 4 hours of sleep. Dr. just prescribed a months worth. Now I must find an alternative while I ween myself off temazepam. Not easy since I wasn't getting any sleep at all before I started.

Restoril (temazepam) for Insomnia: For months been having severe insomnia. Waking 3 or 4 times during the night, never getting more than 4 hours of sleep. Twice in the span of a week and a half no sleep at all. Always feeling tired but not drowsy. I was given prescription for 10.-15mg of Restoril by an ER doctor. Took half a dose one afternoon and slept for 3 hours. Took the other half that early evening and knocked out after 20 minutes and slept for 6 hours. No side effects. Feeling better.

For Insomnia: I have been taking Temazapam for approximately 20 years with great results. The key is to take it sparingly, and no more than one time per week. I usually take it approximately one time every 10-14 days, and it works wonderfully. I normally go to sleep within 10 minutes and sleep 6-8 hours uninterrupted and wake totally clear headed and no grogginess.

For Insomnia: Previously, I had been using Ambien for a couple of years. What I found with that was that it either got me off to sleep within half an hour, which it did most of the time, or it didn't work at all that night. The big problem was that it didn't keep me asleep for more than 3 or 4 hours at a time. I've been using temazepam for about three weeks now. At first it was great - I'd be asleep within 15 minutes or so and sleep 7 or 8 hours straight. But now something else is going on: I'm sleeping 10 to 12 hours at a stretch, and waking up feeling woozy. Obviously, I need to get with my doctor about this.

For Insomnia: I used Methamphetamine when it first hit the street in the early 1980's and stopped on April 10, 2011. Within days I developed chronic fragmented insomnia in which I was unable to sleep for more than 45 to 75 minutes at a time. Attempting to avoid prescription anything, I tried every herb and supplement from Valerian Root to Melatonin with very little improvement. After almost two years I became desperate and willing to try anything so I asked the Doctor for help and was prescribed Temazepam. Now I get at least 4 hours of solid sleep and 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 hours of total sleep each night. I am a bit comatose in the morning for the first 30 to 60 minutes after waking even with coffee. The sleep walking is a bit unnerving though.

For Insomnia: My insomnia has gotten gradually worse for the past 5 years (I'm in my early 50s). Never had a problem falling asleep, but wouldn't sleep longer than 4 hours before I would wake up feeling almost wide awake. Then I would lie awake for a few hours, by then I would doze for up to an hour before it would be time to get up. My Dr. had me on Ambien for a couple years but I hardly ever took it, in fact the medicine would lose their potency before I ever finished the supply. Dr. changed me over to 30 mg. of temazapam and over the past 10 days I've tried it twice and each time I had the best nights' sleep I'd had in years! With a minimum of 6 hours without waking up. I love this medication but I'm only going to take 1 /week.

For Insomnia: Used it for two periods after a nervous breakdown. Restored my sleep cycle pretty well after 12-14 days both times. Needed two pills 10mg each for it to work but recommended.

Restoril (temazepam) for Insomnia: Restoril has been great. I sleep 6 hours and wake up feeling refreshed, no hangover effects. I took trazodone, Ambien, and Lunesta before. None have been as effective. I have very few nights where I struggle getting to sleep on 15mg.

Restoril (temazepam) for Insomnia: I used it along with Paxill. I used it every night for about 2 1/2 years. It did the job of getting me to sleep very well. It would without fail cause me to sleep. It lasted 4 hours, then I would wake up often, but I felt quite rested. Only occasionally would I take a second dose feeling that I needed more sleep. DO NOT MIX WITH ALCOHOL.

For Insomnia: I've taken temazepam for approximately 3 yrs and didn't sleep all the way through the night until my doctor changed my dosage to 3 - 30mg caps @ bedtime. I too take Venlafaxine and have had no adverse reactions. It's been a lifesaver for me.

For Insomnia: Have tried this on and off, find it's best to alternate with other sleep agents, to avoid tolerance. This is my favorite sleeper, biggest complaint is nausea with large doses.

For Insomnia: Worked excellently for insomnia not perfectly since I would like to sleep longer, but I can count on at least 7 hours of sleep. Best of all no side effects or grogginess in the morning. Just good sleep.

Restoril (temazepam) for Insomnia: Worked OK! Little blurry vision but not bad! Slept good 6 hours! Ambien is a lot better just sometimes you do things and don't remember the next morning!

Restoril (temazepam) for Insomnia: Restoril really helped me sleep. Sleeplessness was the cause of fibromyalgia for me and my rheumatologist prescribed it and I was able to sleep and deal with physical pain. What he did not tell me at all was the potential dangers of it. DO NOT drink and take it. You could die because it can cause your respiratory system to shut down. If you have taken it a long time, DO NOT wean yourself off abruptly. You could have seizures. I am being slowly weaned off of it by a doctor who is alternating dosages from 15 mg. to 30 mg. per night. I plan on giving myself plenty of time to get off of it. Be careful which medicines you use with it such as anti-inflammatories. They can increase the effects of the medicine without your expecting it.
