round white pill with no markings and a score line on it

Hi. I have a couple of these round white tablets with a score line & no other marking on them. I was told they were xanax but im unsure; im in the united kingdom and without the markings they look like temazepam in size & color. Could you pls help me? ## In the words of the producers of hong kong fuey....."could be"....You'd have to be a child of the 70's to understand that cultural reference. The most mild mannered janitor ever was a super spy. So you have a couple of white tablets with nothing but a score and say nothing about their packaging. I'd suggest you steer well clear if you haven't got a clue what they are.....and you only have 2 tablets. I'm going with paracetamol.

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 ## ...

On temazepam for month and half, could I be addicted?

I am a 29 year old female, healthy, no smoking & drinking habits. I've never had sleep problem until my child was born last Oct. Since Dec I was suffering a bad insomnia and OB perscripted Temazepam 15 mg for treatment and I am still breastfeeding. As I felt very depressed even with the sleep I got I went to a psychiatrist who diagnosed me with postpartum depression and put me on Zoloft. By the time I was already on Tema for about 4 weeks. My second visit of the psychiatrist he asked whether my sleep had improved with Zoloft (the antidepressant) and I told him I was still on Tema every night. He seemed concerned and told me I should only take Tema 3 times most per week (funny my OB did not mention only use it AS NEEDED when she first perscripted me the Tema, and I got a refill),...

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 ...
