I am currently taking 30mg of restoril capsules each night Would like to know if I can get a non prescription medication to replace it? ## Hello, Kay! How are you? No, there is nothing similar available over the counter. As listed by FDA, Restoril contains the active ingredient Temazepam, which is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat insomnia. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. What other medications have you tried?

I picked up my medicine and saw that it was a white capsule instead of the yellow so I called the pharmacy because I thought they made a mistake but they told me that the company that used to make them sold out and a new company was making them that is why they are a differant color. But anyways this is the problem that I am having with them and my dr. told me to write to the company so I hope that I am writing the right people, since I started taking them they don't even make me drowsy the other ones would make me drowsy in about 20 min. the other thing is that I was sleeping all night long now I wake up after only 4 hours of sleep I know I'm not crazy but something isn't right with these please let me know what I can do I also asked the pharmacy how much Restoril 30mg woul...

Hi I started taking restoril a few months back for insomnia after I was having adverse reactions (sleep walking, cooking, and redosing with out knowing it) and so restoril is amazing for putting me to sleep and keeping me asleep. But my problem is I'm turning 21 tomorrow and my brothers and my fiancé are throwing a party for me which I know we are going to be having a few alcoholic beverages and what not, so my question is if I took my normal 30mg dose of restoril tonight, could I have a few drinks tomorrow? Any feedback would be much appreciated, thank you ## Hello, Kyle! How are you? Happy birthday!! What was causing the adverse reactions? And no, it would be best not to mix this medication with alcohol, since that can worsen the side effects. Can you possibly skip it for a f...

Restoril caused my wife's suicide
5 Replies RSS
In winter / spring of 2010 my wife started having regular episodes of insomnia and by April it was affecting her pretty badly. She told me she thought she was clinically depressed. She had never had any previous mental problems the whole 20 years I knew her- never any mention of suicidal thoughts. We were happily married and had been saving money over time plus had a large inheritance- we were in the process of looking for a house to buy. I sent her to the doctor to get a sleep aid. He prescribed Ambien but it didn't work and it had bad side effects for her. By early June she had missed work a few times and went back to the doctor to try something else. She also told him she was suffering from anxiety (racing thoughts that prevented sleep). He prescribed a combination of Trazadone (...

i have a capsule and its half red n half lightblue . it has N on the half red side in white color. the other half blue side has 30 .........they are called restrall .. ## Based on the description provided, there aren't any medications in the US listed under the name "Restrall". I think you may have meant to say Restoril 30mgs; which is a blue and red colored capsule marked with "RESTORIL 30 mg" on the red half and "M FOR SLEEP" on the blue half. The "M" is also inside of a box. Manufacturer: Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals National Drug Code (NDC): 00406-9917 Restoril (temazepam) is a benzodiazepine drug, used in the treatment of insomnia. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Temazepam Details I hope this helps!

Restoril Why Doesnt It Work
3 Replies RSS
I have had a hard time sleeping as a child. Now that I am 43 it is very bothersome to me. I don't drink or take any drugs besides my thyroid medicine. I have tried Ambiem and lunesta. Neither worked. I am lucky if I get 12 to 14 hours of sleep a week. So now I have been on Restoril 30mg for about a week now and I still can't sleep. I am about to loose it. Why isn't these meds that the doctors say should knock me out, not working. Please I need some advice from people who have severe insomnia? Any advice would be welcome. ## Have you tried any of the natural remedies, such as just taking a Melatonin supplement at night? Learn more Melatonin details here. After having problems with insomnia for years and trying many medications, it's what I've found works best for me. ...
