Uses

Temazepam shares the actions of other benzodiazepines and is used as a hypnotic agent in the short-term treatment of insomnia generally for periods not exceeding 7-10 days in duration. The failure of insomnia to remit after 7-10 days of temazepam therapy may indicate the presence of an underlying psychiatric and/or medical condition. Prolonged use of hypnotics is usually not indicated and should be undertaken only upon further evaluation of the patient. The possibility that insomnia may be a symptom of an underlying condition for which there may be a more specific treatment should be considered.

Dosage and Administration

Administration

Temazepam is administered orally at bedtime.

Dosage

Dosage of temazepam must be individualized, and the smallest effective dosage should be used (especially in geriatric or debilitated patients or in those with liver disease or low serum albumin). Prolonged administration of temazepam should be avoided.

The usual adult dose of temazepam is 15 mg; however, 7.5 mg may be adequate in some patients, while others may require 22.5 or 30 mg. For transient insomnia, 7.5 mg may be adequate to improve sleep latency. In geriatric or debilitated patients, an initial dose of 7.5 mg should be used until individual response is determined. In patients who have received prolonged (e.g., for several months) temazepam therapy at dosages exceeding 15 mg daily, abrupt discontinuance of the drug should be avoided since manifestations of withdrawal can be precipitated; if the drug is to be discontinued in such patients, it is recommended that dosage be gradually tapered.

Cautions

Temazepam shares the toxic potentials of the benzodiazepines, and the usual precautions of benzodiazepine administration should be observed.

Pediatric Precautions

Safety and efficacy of temazepam in children younger than 18 years of age have not been established.
