Temazepam Drug


History


Until recently temazepam was produced as a gel-filled capsule intended to be taken orally. However, it gained a certain notoriety in the United Kingdom, and especially Scotland, when it was discovered that if the capsules were melted and injected the effects were more potent and similar to alcohol. However, the liquid has a tendency to congeal in arteries and cause thrombosis and gangrene, in some cases requiring amputation.

Indications
Temazepam is commonly prescribed for insomnia and other sleep disorders. Temazepam is considered to be one of the most addictive of the benzodiazepines and thus not suited for long-term treatment. Street terms include "rugby balls", "terms", "jellies", "mazzies", "beans" and "eggs".

Dosage
Temazepam is available in 7.5mg, 15mg and 30mg capsules.

It is available as 10 and 20mg tablets in the UK.

When used for treatment of insomnia, the usual dose is 7.5mg to 15mg taken at bedtime.

Usual UK doses (from BNF) are 20-40mg, max 40-60mg in exceptional circumstances.
