I take serex for anxiety and insomnia. When I gave up alcohol, it was very helpful in easing that hurdle. I am out of most of my meds right now, and am in the gap in Medicare (meaning that I am spending a lot more on meds than I can actually afford -- serex is not covered, anyway, but I need to cut down on med expenses in any way I can). I have some Temazepam, and am wondering if I could take that in place of the Oxazepam (serex) for a few weeks or so.
Serax (oxazepam) is a prescription medication approved to treat the following conditions: Anxiety; Alcohol withdrawal.
Temazepam is a prescription sleep medication approved for insomnia treatment. In general, the drug should only be used for the short-term treatment of insomnia (for no longer than seven to ten days).
The difference is evident, both meds are prescription meds, please do ask you doc/pharmacist which med suits you best.
Take care, best wishes!
If you're in the donut hole, what isn't covering oxazepam? If you mean medicare isn't covering it, I've noticed that they seem to be making a polictical statement not covering controlled meds. My pain med isn't covered either, and its not controlled!!! And whomever dreamt up that donut hole should be taken out and shot.
