any problems like bad side effects taking restoril fot long period


Full details on the range of potential side-effects of Temazepam can be found here:

Although not directly referenced, there is also potential for a psychological dependence, where a user finds that they cannot sleep without use of the drug. This can happen with all sleeping aids, and is why they should only ever be used for short periods of time. Otherwise normal sleep patterns adjust to the use of the drug, and withdrawal can result in rebound insomnia.

I hope this helps.

I am happy to answer general questions on medicines and hospital care. If possible, please use approved / chemical names rather than brands which are not internationally recognised. Like all health professionals I am bound by a duty of care which prevents me giving detailed information about medication or treatment of people other than the questioner. I will endeavour to help wherever possible or point towards more appropriate advice. If however your question crosses too far into patient confidentiality, I hope you will understand why I cannot answer your question. Consider.. would you want me to discuss your care with a friend or relative without your knowledge?
