Does any one else have this problem with primary care Dr. Not wanting to prescribe? It seems they say it is because of state laws??? I was wondering if this is just in Texas or is this just with primary care Dr.'s? Please reply if you have this problem!! I'd greatly appreciate your response!!!

Hello Little Bit,

Back in June of 2015 Temazepam was changed to a schedule 3 drug which means that it was possible to abuse this drug, although less likely than a schedule 1 or 2, and that in taking this medication there was a low or moderate chance to have low physical dependency and a high psychological dependency. Doctors have a lot to consider when prescribing medication and choosing which one to prescribe because if they were ever scrutinized or investigated they would need to provide substantial evidence that proves without a shadow of a doubt that this medication was necessary for you to be taking. The doctor may agree that there is an issue but may not see that your problem is severe enough to justify prescribing this medication.

With that in mind I would like to ask what other resolutions he offered you in order to help alleviate your restlessness? I ask because sometimes doctors try to resolve issues through diet and habits first before resorting to addictive medication, if this is the case then he is likely ensuring that he can prove that he did his best to resolve your problem naturally instead of prescribing a potentially addictive medication outright.

I hope this sheds some light on the situation.

My primary used to prescribe Temazapam but then started giving me a hard time cause he was also prescribing me Xanax. So now I go to a psyc and she prescribes both without any problem.
