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.

Temazepam in my province is regularly scripted at 2 x 30mg caps(60mg) a night just like zopiclones max dose is 7.5 and it's still regularly scripted at 15mg a night(including me) as a standing order not prn.

In 1992 age 17 I was suffering with undiagnosed ADHD and discouraged BPD. Was very introverted drank lots of alcohol most days to self medicate and found taking 60mg temazepam when I awoke would always not just take away the hangover but make me feel relaxed and not as much introverted.

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.

I've been on 10MG tablets (Normison) Temazepam x 2 at night for few years. After couple years went to 40mg night. I then quit them all together for 6 months. I'm now back on them and taking around 80 mg a day. Maybe 20mg at noon, 20mg in afternoon and 40mg at night. Can't find out if this is dangerous or not. Don. free discount card
