Restoril (temazepam) is a prescription sleep medication approved for the treatment of insomnia. In general, it should only be used as a short-term treatment (for no longer than seven to ten days).
Restoril is one of a group of medications known as benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines have several different effects on the body, including:
Relaxing muscles; Reducing anxiety; Causing sleepiness; Stopping seizures;
Impairing short-term memory.
All benzodiazepine medications can have these effects to some degree, depending on the specific medication and the dose. They work in the brain by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a brain chemical that is naturally calming. GABA can slow down or stop certain nerve signals in the brain. This is why Restoril and other benzodiazepines are known as mild tranquilizers, sedatives, or central nervous system depressants (CNS depressants).
Most people tolerate Restoril quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by the doctor. Serious side effects are less common.
Common side effects include but are not limited to: * Drowsiness; * Lethargy;
* Dizziness; * Hangover.
For more details it is recommended to speak to the doc who would prescribe the med. Hope the info helped? Be well & safe!
Hello, I hope you are well.
There is an inductor for sleep an anesthetic called Versed (midozolam) 7.5 mg or 15 mg as you know it´s a benzo.
Now I aloo suffer from insomnia and I am taking abilify, it is great with my combo pm..seroquel, depakane, klonopin. Abilify it used to treat depresion, but if you really want to sleep give a try, and by the way you will always be more relaxed and it´s not addictive at all.-
Talk to you Di¡octor about it.
All the best buddy:_
Just wanted to add that Restoril is a good medicaion for insomnia, BUT you can't take it if you are on any CNS depressants because serious CNS depression can result! Also, you should know that it may take up to 2 nights before you notice any real benefits, so keep that in mind. Finally, it has been known to cause some people to feel "hung over". Hope this helps in making your decision!
