What is Temazepam
Temazepam is a medication of the benzodiazepine class which is generally used to treat severe or debilitating insomnia. It is taken by mouth. Temazepam is rapidly absorbed, and significant hypnotic effects begin in less than 30 minutes and can last for up to eight hours.
Temazepam takes approximately 30 minutes to start working, with peak effects seen at three-quarters to one hour. Its effects last approximately seven to eight hours. Do not take temazepam if you do not intend to stay asleep or in bed for at least eight hours.
Mechanism of action
Temazepam (tem az’ e pam) is a benzodiazepine that is widely used as a sleeping aid in the therapy of insomnia. The soporific activity of the benzodiazepines is mediated by their ability to enhance gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) mediated inhibition of synaptic transmission through binding to the GABA A receptor.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
Restoril (temazepam) is indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia (generally 7 to 10 days). For patients with short-term insomnia, instructions in the prescription should indicate that Restoril (temazepam) should be used for short periods of time (7 to 10 days).
