Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
We offer affordable tapering programs to help you withdraw from Restoril.
Restoril is a powerful hynotic benzodiazepine that has strong sedative, amnestic (memory disturbance) and motor impairing properties. In addition, Restoril also has anti-anxiety, anticonvulsant and skeletal muscle relaxant qualities. Restoril is an intermediate acting benzodiazepine and therefore acts quickly to induce sleep. However, Restoril also alters the sleep architecture by reducing the amounts of restorative Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep and increasing the non-restorative sleep patterns. This can result in daytime drowsiness and poor cognitive function. Restoril also depresses the tone of respiratory muscles, leading to sleep apnea. Tolerance to the sleep inducing properties of Restoril develops within a matter of days, and after six days of use, performance-impairing effects occur. Therefore only short-term use of Restoril is recommended.
Restoril tends to have more side effects than other hypnotic drugs and tolerance to the sedative properties, anxiety abating and anticonvulsant properties can appear within a short period of time. Abrupt withdrawal from RESTORIL can cause rebound insomnia and severe benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms. Therefore, anyone taking Restoril should discontinue through slow and gradual dose reduction.
It is recommended that anyone taking Restoril should discontinue through slow and gradual dose reduction to make Restoril withdrawal managable. Our nonprofit is help you withdraw from Restoril properly.

Restroril(Temazepam, Normison, Euhypnos, Temaze, Temtabs, Remestan, Tenox, Norkotral)
Restoril (Temazepam) is a short to intermediate acting benzodiazepine that is a powerful hypnotic prescribed for the short-term treatment of insomnia. It was first synthesized in Europe in 1964 and was marketed in Europe until the FDA approved Restoril in 1981 for the U.S. market. By the late 1980s it was one of the most prescribed hypnotics on the market. East Germany and the Soviet Union used Restoril as a truth serum, but it made the subject too sleeping or rendered them incoherent. Instead, the drug was used to keep political dissidents housed and in a constant vegetative state in Soviet asylums. Physical dependence to Restoril carries the same concern as with all benzodiazepines, and the withdrawal syndrome can be extremely challenging. Therefore a slow taper is recommended to minimize symptoms.
