Question
eric,im a 78 year old man that has been fighting insommnia for  years,my bedyime drugs are xanax 1mg,lunesta 2mg,andremeron 15mg.doc wants ne to drop xanaxand take temazepam 30mg with the remeron and lunesta.is restoril easier on your body then xanax?is my nitely combo cause any problems to body,none of them interact.

Answer
Hi Roger,
Xanax isassociated with causing amnesia. Temazepam is safer in that respect.
It does not make sense to me to take Lunesta and Restoril. Axanax has an anti- anxiety benefit which you will lose with Temazepam.
Thank you for using Allexperts
Sincerely,
