 3  Sleep during depression It takes about 2 hours to fall asleep. It doesn't knock me out, I just start getting drowsy. Then I'm in a good rested sleep for about 2-3 hours. Then I either wake up, or I feel as though I wake up in a dream. The dream is so vivid, the hours pass in the dream as if I'm laying in bed. Every day when I wake up in real life, I feel like I've been up all night in my dream life. So the sleep part sucks, but I do feel decently rested through out the day. It's good for getting to sleep, but the dreams make the sleep unsatisfying. It's too much. F 32 4 days

 1  Chronic insomnia Horrific night terrors, so real they give me very minor trauma. Usually based in my anxiety fears and irrational fears, but they're extremely terrifying and frightening. Accidentally took 2 one night (poor memory due to ADHD), and thought I was dying because of my nightmares. As someone who doesn't normally have dreams, this has been a legitimately traumatic medication to take and I'm currently quitting it cold turkey because benzo withdrawals are more favorable to falling asleep and waking up with trauma. Do not take this unless it's a last resort. Please try everything else. My experience is not everyone's, but it's been scary enough to throw in my thoughts as a word of caution that this could be an experience for some people. F 24 100 days

 1  Insominia Don't take this drug. It is a class 4 controlled substance. Terrible side effects-cognitive response, short term memory loss, depression, drains your body strength. Never trust a doctor-do your homework and talk to a pharmacist or you will be an addict. M 72 3 months

 1  Insomnia Only short periods of sleep. Then unable to go back to sleep but lay awake engaged in lucid dreaming. Was considering switching to an SNRI for sleep (Cymbalta) but research indicates it has the same potential side effect (unbelievably horrific nightmares and vivid dreaming). M 70 4 days

 2  Cannot fall asleep for 5-6 hours No side effects. But it just did not work. Took at 9 pm and am still trying to fall asleep and it's 11:50 pm now. It is like I took nothing at all. I never use any caffeine either. Very frustrated right now, because last night I never fell asleep all night. Finally got a nap between 8-11 am today and that was it. I hoped this drug would help. I am exhausted! F 72 1 days

 3  Insomnia Does help with sleep. Iím having very vivid dreams and Iím told Iím talking in my sleep and twitching A LOT! I feel very groggy in the morning and it does take a while for that feeling to go away. Usually a few cups of coffee help I also take pain medication for herniated discs. I have to make sure I donít take any pain medication after lunchtime to ensure they donít strengthen the effects of the medication F 47 3 months

 5  Insomnia I don't notice any side effects. I was afraid of addiction so I take a blue sleep gel every other night instead (Unisom) w/1mg of melatonin. At 7:30 I take the Restoril, 25 mg, at 8pm the melatonin and sleep great. I empty out half of one 15mg capsule & take that with the other 15mg capsule. I take an obscene amount of nootropics and D3 so that's probably helping out with any anxiety I might otherwise have. I avoid all caffeine, even chocolate after 4pm also. F 74 3 weeks

 3  Insomnia Hallucinations, Brain Fog, Depression First couple of nights i got 6 hrs of sleep from restoril. After that you build up a tolerance and i would only get 4-5 hrs a night usually. Within a couple days i was noticing changes in my visual field- blues and greens seemed muted, shadows of things were more defined and darker. the world felt slightly less real. when i would go to the supermarket all the products on the shelf seemed extremely bright and clean. felt like i was living on the set of Sesame Street or something. i also had pretty bad brain fog and after a few days noticed depression creeping in.

 2  Insomnia Taking 15mg of Restoril and 0.5mg of clonazepam at night. Restoril for insomnia and Clonozepam for anxiety. Not really satisfied with the Restoril. I take it right before I go to sleep. I can sleep for 3 hours and have a very restless sleep tossing and turning then wake up. Iíve had insomnia for about 3-4 years now and was hoping this would be my wonder drug but it doesnít do the job. Iíd like to sleep at least 5-6 hrs straight instead I awake up then struggle to try and fall back to sleep again. By then itís time to wake up for the day. I have the craziest dreams or nightmares. I just keep going over the same dream over and over again. I dread going to sleep because I know iíll Have a night mare. Sometimes I jump up with my chest pounding. I go back to sleep sometimes having the sweats. Beside that I feel groggy in the morning and feel depressed not wanting to do anything but wallow in self pity and even anger because Iím beginning to become dependent on it. Iíve only been on Restoril for a month now so Iím going to just take it as needed because Iím also on the Clonozepam which also makes me sleepy. I take the Restoril as needed. My Dr. Said itís not for long term use just as needed but now I take it every night. I guess now would be the time to taper slowly. Iíve taken Ambien before also caused me to have weird dreams but I slept longer. I canít function without at least 5-6 hrs of straight sleep. Not as great as my Dr. said it was. These drs just prescribe these meds like theyíre candy from the discount store. They know the drugs are habit forming. At least mine told me to just use as needed, Iím grateful for that. Also these drugs are not good for your kidneys or liver Ask and do your research before filling your prescriptions . Iím sorry I even filled my Restoril script!! F 50 4 weeks

RESTORIL  (TEMAZEPAM):  This medication is used to treat a certain sleep problem (insomnia). It may help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and lessen how often you wake up during the night, so you can get a better night's rest. Temazepam belongs to a class of drugs called sedative-hypnotics. It acts on your brain to produce a calming effect. Use of this medication is usually limited to short treatment periods of 1 to 2 weeks or less. If your insomnia continues for a longer time, talk to your doctor to see if you need other treatment.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
