Official Answer by Drugs.com 16 Oct 2013

The usual adult dose range for insomnia is 7.5 mg to 30 mg orally once a day at bedtime.
The dose of 60mg would be too high and therefore not recommended.

A dosage of 60 mg is extremely high. From professional side of this site:

"Temazepam Dosage and Administration

While the recommended usual adult dose is 15 mg before retiring, 7.5 mg may be sufficient for some patients, and others may need 30 mg. In transient insomnia, a 7.5 mg dose may be sufficient to improve sleep latency. In elderly or debilitated patients, it is recommended that therapy be initiated with 7.5 mg until individual responses are determined."

No study information is available at dosing of 60 mg. There is also no indication of what dosage constitutes an over dosage, but treatment for an overdose is described. Depending on the individual 60 mg could cause serious impairment.
