For the treatment of insomnia, most people take 7.5 mg of quazepam. In most cases, the drug is taken at bedtime. Your quazepam dosage can be taken with or without food. For the sleep medication to work properly, make sure to take the drug as prescribed.
The dose of quazepam (Doral®) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Other medications you may be taking
- Your age
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your quazepam dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
Quazepam Dosing for Insomnia
The recommended dose of quazepam when treating insomnia is usually 7.5 mg, taken at bedtime. If necessary, your healthcare provider may increase your dosage up to 15 mg at bedtime.
Considerations for people taking quazepam include the following:
- The medication comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth at bedtime.
- Quazepam can be taken with or without food. If the drug bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Quazepam may cause serious problems if you take it at higher dosages or for a longer period of time than your healthcare provider recommends (see Doral Abuse).
