I will list side effects reported as potentials for temazepam....
After this list I will also give you option to contact me for phone call as well. ( there is added charge for phone conversation to let you be aware...)
There is quarantining that if Temazepam fails to help your sleep within 7 to 10 days then an underlying disorder might be present and need diagnosis
--over-sedation is potential concern
--presence of depression should warrant caution as this medication could worsen that condition..
-- the presence of pulmonary disease warrants caution as it could lower respiratory drive some...
-- getting out of bed after taking is not advised as there are reports of complex behaviors being undertaken with this such as "sleep driving" impaired judgment could be result or lack of memory of events after taking this medication..
--review of other medicines that you take is advised to ensure no problems with interactions..
