Taking expired Temazepam

Can I still take Temazepam that expired 9 years ago? ## It doesn't become dangerous, once expired, but it will most likely have lost some of its efficacy. Even when a medication is stored in the original, factory sealed packaging, it still expires in 4 to 5 years, and if it has been opened, and placed in a prescription bottle dispensed by your pharmacy, then its expiration date is a year from when it was dispensed. Harvard Health has some great information available on expiration dates. The way the medication has been stored in the intervening years can also play a role, exposure to heat, light, air, and moisture all aid in degradation. It would be best to dispose of it, and see your doctor for a new prescription, if one is needed. Ref: Temazapam Information Is there anything else I...

temazepam caps 10mg

I have received some liquid filled capsules that look fluorescent yellow or very light green. I am promised they are temazepam by Pfizer but I've never ever seen see through capsules. I have a rule where I will not take anything I am not 100% certain of. Can anyone please tell me if there is a see through temazepam gel cap that fits this description ? I've trawled the internet images but the one I find are not see through. I don't want to throw away good stuff but rather that than be a possible fatality. I also have some pink and deep, round and pink tablets that are scored on one side but with no markings. I'm told they are alprazolam 4mg. Apparently they turn blue in liquid. They are at least double or treble the depth of a normal pill. The guy says that are C10 alpraz...

Temazepam tem-20 UK

My latest refill has tem-20 temazepam tablets. I've read they stopped making 20 mgs but I have taken my dose and they are working. Is "tem-20" the correct marking for temazepam? Can anyone (in the UK or other country) recognize the stamp as valid?

What Color Is Temazepam 15 Mg

I am prescribed 15mg capsules. I got a refill and the tablets are pink - MFG MYLAN My former rx was white/green MFG GENEVA Are these the same pills? ## Well, it's difficult to confirm what they are, since you didn't provide any markings. There are 15mg Temazepam products manufactured by both companies and it is very common for a pharmacy to switch, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, at the time they had to restock their supply. The 15mg from Mylan should be an orange/pink colored capsule with the markings MYLAN 4010 on each half. Does this match the ones you received? ## Yes it did. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! ## What do they look like in a capsule 750mg inside of the pill ## pink/white are usually 7.5mg. Blue/White are 15mg. It usually states it on the capsule. Ask th...

How to taper off Temazepam completely

Please help; doctor doesn't want me as a patient anymore, reasons are ridiculous and too long to get into, but now she has put me in a jam. I was taking Clonazepam 2mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for anxiety & sleep), & Temazepam 30mg. 2 tablets 2x per week(for sleep). I have been on both these drugs for 2 1/2 years & want to get the heck off them. I noticed the last couple months; neither appeared to be helping the anxiety/sleep issues I have had; so basically I just want off both. I have been Clonazepam free for 11 days now. I CANNOT believe how I feel--like I could crawl right out of my skin; anxiety ridden, non stop talking,completely wired,nerves jumping in arms & legs, more and more and on and on. Bad idea to go cold turkey, but did & now out of them. So I have ...

In what country is Temazepam by Mylan made?

In what country is Temazepam by Mylan (Mylan 4010) made? I do not like to take anything made in China, because they put poisonous substances in products, or from the Phillipines, because they do not put a full dose in each pill or capsule. For instance, whenever I receive a Z-pack that is not made in USA, it diesn't work. ## Where something is made is not relevant, if it is approved to be provided by a doctor, or pharmacy here in the U.S., then it must meet the same safety and efficacy standards as all others, under FDA regulations. They warn that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability. As to when the Azithromycin doesn't work, it is possible that it was not the correct antibiot...

Mylan Temazepam shortage

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 ## I have the same problem - did you manage to find any Mylan? ## What happened to Mylan temezapam 30 MG? Nothing else works!!? ## 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. It states: "Mylan did not...

Temazepam doesn't work for me

Thr VA gave them to me and its like drinking coffee befoe going to bed ## Having abstained from coffee for several hours, and feeling a little tired, I took my first 20mg of temazepam and settled down with a book before attempting to doze off. I am WIDE awake. I found myself tossing and turning, stretching myself, humming various tunes, rolling on the bedroom floor. Is this supposed to be a soporific or an amphetamine by another name? ## If you taken 20mg of temazepam for the first time ever and your wide awake and restless you didn't get your pills from doctor or you have been given the wrong medication by accident. You would be very nicely chilled out and in the land of dreams after a short period. I would definately go straight by to your doctor/pharmicist/dealer and complain ## ...

Temazepam and pain relief

Got prescribed 20mg temazepam for anxiety and sleep disorder. White round white tablet. Score one side 30 on other. Sorry bad eyesight but I'm sure it says 30. Anyways, I feel it takes away pain as well. Anyone else get this effect from temazepam? ## Restoril or Temazepam has diazepam in it as well as a hypnotic for sleeping. They're prescribed as sleeping pills.. if you're getting pain relief from it it’s probably because it has relaxed your body enough to get real rest and sleep.. I also take the same medication and I use it one a day at bedtime. I’m also prescribed diazepam which is Valium for my anxiety and two are very different in regards to sleeping. Yes diazepam can make you very sleepy because you’re so relaxed but it’s not a sleeping pill wh...

Temazepam refill

Ok, this is messed up. I take 30mg of Temazepam at night. I live in Mississippi, but when I had the prescription filled I was in Tennessee. Therefore, my 5 refills are in Tennessee, and the pharmacist down here in Mississippi said they can't transfer controlled substances. They can transfer the Prozac, but not the Temazepam. I have one prescription of 15mg Temazepam here in Mississippi from months ago because my dosage was increased. If I get that filled and a few days or a week later, go back to Tennessee and get my other prescription for the 30mg Temazepams will I get in trouble? This is bull feces, because Walmart should be able to transfer prescriptions to adjacent states for people who travel some. Ridiculous. ## This is the standard directive from the FDA and DEA. Controlled s...

Stopping temazapam cold turkey dangers?

I've been taking 60 mg temazapam for years for sleep. Ran out 4 days ago and refill in 4 days. Am I in any danger? I know doctor won't go for emergency refill as I had one 2 months ago when I lost bottle (I really did). Will any OTC meds help? Thanks ## Hello, Rolf! How are you doing? Have you experienced any issues? Stopping this medication abruptly can create the risk of seizures, so it you need to be very careful not to run out, as warned by the FDA. Other withdrawal effects may possible include nausea, dizziness, chills, diarrhea, anxiety, and insomnia. ## No real issues other that it took a few more glasses of wine and 100 mg benadryl to get to sleep. Face feels a little flushed and tender, oddly. I didn't think 60 mg/ day was that high of an amount anyway. I've got...

Activas Temazepam 30mg vs others

I recently changed pharmacy's. I usually take the yellow Mylan 30mg Temazepam dose which works fine. The new pharmacy's generic is from Activas. A white capsule with a logo (R with a line through it) and 077 imprinted on it. I do not get the same effect of what I am used to vs the yellow 30mg capsules. has anyone had the same issue? I also seem to have a slight withdrawal during the next day. Has anyone else switched Mfg? ## Although I don't have any personal experience with this medication, I am aware that the major differences in peoples reaction to the drug are largely due to different body chemistry and different inactive ingredients in each brand/generic. Furthermore, the FDA permits generic formulas to vary by as much as 20% from the active ingredients in brand formula...

Best/Worst Generic Temazepam ?

Which manufacturers (found on your bottle) of Temazepam do you find effective and not effective? Some people will share the color of their pills, but when I call the pharmacies, I ask what manufacturer they are using. Have a script for 22.5, but can have it changed to 15 or 30. Please help. Thank you. ## There is really no way to say that the one from any given manufacturer is better than another, since we are all different, so it can vary from person to person. The only thing you can really do is try the one provided by your pharmacy, and see if it works for you. Temazepam is a benzodiazepine class medication that is often used to treat anxiety, panic disorders, and some cases of insomnia. It carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness...

Temazepam hangover

I have been having sleep issues for some time now. I have taken ambien then lunesta and they no longer work. My doctor gave me a script for 30 mg Temazepam. I took the first one last night. I sleep very well but had a very hard time waking up and have felt groggy since arising about 4 hours ago. Does this hangover side efect go away or is it the norm whenever taking this drug? ## It may sound funny at first, but word for word, this is listed as a normal side effect of Temazepam: "hangover effect (feeling groggy the day after you take temazepam)" Referenced from: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a684003.html#side-effects However it also mentions that you should let your doctor know if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away. My suggestion would be to continue taki...
