What is Restoril?
Restoril®, which is also known as temazepam, is an intermediate acting benzodiazepine that is normally prescribed to treat:
- Disabling Sleep Disorders
- Severe Insomnia
Restoril® works by slowing activity in the brain to allow sleep.
Is Restoril addicting?
Restoril® is meant for short term use between 7 to 10 days and should not be taken for more than 2-3 weeks without close doctor supervision. Within a few weeks of consistently taking Restoril®, the body adjusts to the presence of the drug and a tolerance develops. As a tolerance to Restoril® develops, the body requires more and more Restoril® to achieve sleep.
