Restoril (temazepam): "The people who are rating this medication lower than an 8 aren't taking it properly. This is an amazing medication when taken properly. You really have to take this medication AT YOUR BEDTIME. You cannot take it and then expect to get a good nights sleep while watching tv, going through Facebook on your phone for 2 hours or any other activity like that, you need to take it literally right before you plan to go to bed. Temazepam 22.5mg has worked wonders for my insomnia it has helped me to regain a good nights sleep which I was no longer experiencing anymore."

"I have been in need for medical assistance and medications to help me to sleep for 20 years. I was not lucky here in the US. I found abroad the most fantastic sleep inducers. From the family of Diazepine called Parnox. This medication was perfect. Makes me fall asleep and cero side effects: Recently I was unable to travel and found here here Temazepan and is the same fantastic medication. Same effect and zero side effects. I super recommend it. Good luck"

"I took 30 mg Tremazepam every night for several years. It really worked for me. I had a long history of sleeping only a few hours then waking up and not falling back to sleep. This drug put me pleasantly to sleep, and I would sleep 7-9 hours. Sometimes I was groggy in the morning for a while. Then my MD took me off the medication because if is meant for only a short time use. I was able to get off with no withdrawal in three weeks. Now, I am back to waking up after several hours sleep and staying awake for several hours before falling back to sleep. I limit my use of this drug to twice a week now. It still works, but I won't take it every night. I don't think my MD will write another RX for it, so I'm rationing what I have left"

"I tried temazapam for 3 days and got zero results. I'm lucky if I sleep 2 hrs a night. So, the next night I took a 30 mg tablet, 2 shots of whiskey, 2 tablets of melatonin, smoked a little weed and I slept for 7 hrs. Never felt better!"

"This works wonders... Obviously it is different per person but in my experience for over two months now, along with 1-2 pills of Seroquel (50mg) ea, I have been getting full nights rest. I've always had a issue with sleep, and used to self medicate with herb which I no longer do. My doctor tried 4 different sleeping aids prior to prescribing me both Temazepam and Seroquel. If you are having a issue sleeping, go to the doctor and ask to be put on these, at least try it! Temezapam is a Benzopien, so you'll have to show your ID wherever you get it filled at. Good luck!"

Restoril (temazepam): "I was given a prescription of 30mg Restoril by my GP doctor to help combat recurring bouts of insomnia. While it did nothing to help me fall asleep, it did help me in a couple of other ways. I frequently suffer from tension headaches and noticed after 15 minutes of my first dose the headache was completely eradicated which lead me to believe that it does well as a muscle relaxer . Another property of the drug which I found helpful was a significant decrease in anxiety and made me more comfortable in social situations . I never felt "high" just an increased desire to interact with my fellow peers. So while I can't give it a glowing review for the reason it was prescribed, other effects outweighed the uselessness of the intended treatment."

"Gives you a nice undisturbed sleep and has a kind of heavy, foggy side effect that comes over you after you have taken it. I woke up the next morning though and I felt really, really depressed. I do have a history of depression so not even sure if this should have been prescribed to me but it is useful for relief of insomnia. However I prefer diazepam."

"Restoril 15mg works pretty well for me. I started experiencing moderate insomnia, just over a year ago. I've been taking 2mg of Xanax, 3 times a day for many years, for panic attacks. My psychiatrist prescribed Restoril, because it's also a benzodiazepine. It doesn't have the "hangover effects" of other sleep medications. The only complaint that I have is that it doesn't last as long as it's supposed to, for me. I usually wake up about 5 hours after, and have difficulty getting back to sleep. If you're already taking a benzo, this should be great for you, on a short or long term basis. If you're not, then be careful and wean off of it, because you can have have pretty nasty withdrawal symptoms!"

"I have tried every sleeping pill on the market. I was on dalmane first when I was a kid. When I was sixteen, I was in the hospital, the nurse gave me a restoril and told me I'll love it there's no hangover in the morning, and she was right. Knocked me out as good as dalmane, but there was no next day effect like dalmane did, and dalmane was so potent, there could be a fire and I wouldn't wake up. Restoril is not that potent, but it is very good. I've taken it for many, many years, beginning 1984 the first time, then I went on halcion, but I really thought restoril was better, after sleepwalking on ambien in 1995 I only went on halcion or restoril for my insomnia. I have severe insomnia"

"Do not take this drug! I have taken it for about a year. 30 mg. Truly great at FIRST. Little did I know about the withdrawals, pure hell. I never should have been on it this long. It's only supposed to be prescribed for a week! Now it doesn't work anymore, and the withdrawal symptoms are unbearable."

"Been taking it for years. Not as effective as at first. I sleep maybe 4 hours, then wake. Take a 350 mg soma about 3am watch 30 min TV, awake at 6am like clock work. No groggy or med hangover though. Better than ambian or lunista. I can take a fist full of those and watch the middle of the night programming. Like others, never had a problem sleeping. I think interferon destroyed that ability, but I'm alive and cured, so I'll take a little insomnia. Hope this helps you!"

Restoril (temazepam): "This works wonders for my insomia! Initially, Ambien was prescribed to me but it gave me the worst headache. With Restoril, I get at least 6 hours of sleep."

"I take 30 mg at like 10:00 pm and fall asleep but I wake up at like 5:00 or 6:00 am exhausted and exhausted most of the day. I also take XANAX .5 mg once or twice during the day for anxiety / panic attacks. That helps but still tired all day"

"Had been using Temazepam for some years 2 - 3 X a month for insomnia during full moon events. Last Fall, I discovered that Temazepam gave me other relief as well. Developed renal stone, prostate, & diverticulosis issues that began to significantly interfere with my sleep. I'd wake because of bladder & kidney discomfort, have a minimally productive urination with a fair amount of UT irritation, return to bed & soon experience rising irritability from my colon requiring another bathroom trip, this time for a minimally productive bowel movemen with no return to deep sleep and the cycle repeating 2 - 3 more times in the next 4 hours making for poor sleep and a distinctly irritable attitude upon rising. No problem with Temazepam!"
