Sleep Home > Temazepam Medication Information

If you have more than the occasional difficulty falling asleep, or if you feel that you do not get enough sleep or cannot obtain satisfying sleep, your healthcare provider may recommend a drug called temazepam (Restoril®). This prescription medication belongs to a group of drugs called benzodiazepines and is approved for use as a short-term insomnia treatment. It comes in capsule form and is taken at bedtime.
Prior to starting treatment with this drug, your healthcare provider needs information on your medical history and a detailed list of any other medications you are taking, including nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and supplements. Drug interactions with temazepam are possible, and this product is not right for all people. Providing this information to your healthcare provider will help ensure a safe, effective treatment process.
