Mylan Temazepam Shortage

Updated
mslums3 Says:

Has Mylan stopped making Temazepam 30mg? I have been on that brand /mfg for long time. Suddenly in NC no pharmacy can find any Mylan brand. All the other brands of Temazapam does not work like Mylan always has. Drug shortage list keeps stating no release date. I just would like to know if the completely stopped making the Mylan or when they may possibly release it again. I haven't gotten this brand since December 2018.These other brands just don't work. Please help

The most recent information I could find on this is from an ASHP listing about Temazepam shortages from 5/17/2021, and it's not great news unfortunately.

https://www.ashp.org/drug-shortages/current-shortages/drug-shortage-detail.aspx?id=503

It states:

"Mylan did not provide a reason for the shortage."

"Mylan Institutional discontinued temazepam capsules in unit-dose packaging."

"Mylan has all presentations of temazepam capsules on back order and the company cannot estimate a release date."

If anyone has something more recent please share!

I found this article from last year that speaks in general terms of all medication Mylan manufactures. https:/­/­www.google.com/­amp/­s/­mobile.reuters.com/­article/­amp/­idUSKCN20L32F

I found this more recent article that also talks about current drug shortages due to Covid & mentions Benzodiazepines as one of the types of medications in short supply.

Yes. Mylan does not make restoril anymore because they got sued for the epi-pen. I know this sucks.

There are none left on the shelf. Try novel 123 they work. Do not waste your money on malindricroft's crap. It is very expensive and does not work at all! The restoril from malindicroft is bad. They changed the active ingrediant.

This is bizarre. I just found this board, in search of info on Temazapam. I have been taking Temazapam (30 mg) on a nightly basis for the past 5 years and starting last July, I found that it wasn't working very well for me anymore. I thought I had built up a tolerance for it and it was making me (and still makes me) miserable. However, I have also read that not all Temazapam is the same and that Mylan was the best. However they discontinued it in June 2021, right around the time my problems started. Could it be that I've been getting generic versions that aren't as effective?

Could be the case. I do find that some generics work better than others for some medications. It should say somewhere on your prescription bottle (usually near the bottom) the name of the manufacturer.

Yes mylan has stopped making restoril many years ago because they got sued for their epi pen. Now they don't make it.

Novel has stopped making them as well. Where to get them from? Good luck... Have you tried cutting down your dose? Doesn't that make _everyone_ else happy :(

Re: Tom (# 9) Expand Referenced Message

That is absolutely correct. I have been on every generic out there.. Nothing works like Mylan 30mg Temazepam!!! Nothing.

Why did Mylan stop temazepam over an epi pen?

Dunno the details. Probably to pay the “fine”. They were sued for making life saving drugs by Uncle Sam.

No nothing else works. You must remeber that Mallinckrodt is the company that caused the oxy problem. They do not care about the quality of their drugs.

Re: Tom (# 9) Expand Referenced Message

Yes, unfortunaltely you are most likely not experiencing the ``benzo tolerance'', as there is none.

The drug is bad. It happens all the time. Mallinckrodt is in charge. What do you want some bad oxy in the mix?

Ahh! Just figured it out. Teva is now making a generic epi pen! Guess what - the cost is the same! Hmmmm....

If you really want to know the truth. Mallinckrodt was planning on substituting the benzo in restoril with valium so that it would provide a higher selling price. Yes; the temazepam is too strong for an illicit drug - hence the existence of Mallinckrodt.

Benzo drugs are dispensed by the milligram - not by the chemical. Not many people take valium 20s - but restoril can be prescribed by 60mg.

Switch the expensive benzo for a cheap benzo and let the overdoses commence. Does this sound familiar?

How can they still be in a position of reliability. I wish I could meet with them.

"... In addition, as a contractor to the U.S. government, we have specific obligations with regard to human trafficking pursuant to Federal Acquisition Regulation clause 52.222-50, Combating Trafficking in Persons, and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement 252.222-7007, Representation Regarding Combating Trafficking in Persons. In 2017, we instituted a Human Trafficking Policy that applies to all Mallinckrodt employees, subcontractors, suppliers and other partners that assist in our performance of all U.S. government contracts and subcontracts, and expressly prohibits Mallinckrodt from engaging in human trafficking while performing under such contracts. ''

It sounds like they have actually thought about this.
