Flurazepam

When and How to Take Flurazepam

General considerations for when and how to take the medication include the following:
 
  • Flurazepam comes in capsule form. It is usually taken by mouth at bedtime.
     
  • Take it just before you are ready to go to bed, as it can work rather quickly in some people.
     
  • It can be taken with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. It may cause serious problems if you take it at higher dosages or for a longer period of time than your healthcare provider recommends (see Dalmane Abuse).
     

Dosing Information

The dose of flurazepam that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
