 4  Insomnia and anxiety PRN for occasional anxious periods in life. Only used at night and in small quantities. It's OK for rare to occasional use, but I did not find it effective as an insomnia treatment drug, nor for daily use. The body can rapidly build up a tolerance for this, meaning you need an increased dose after a few days or so. So,it is best used as a one-off, once-in-a-blue moon medication. Used at night only. In the morning, I felt groggy, cranky and grumpy. It is not a mood enhancer by any means and you can expect it to flatten and lower your mood significantly, the next day. It does calm the muscles though. For instance, if you grind your teeth in your sleep, or move around a lot, it can help you relax. Also, you can expect to wake up, from your own snoring/ snorting, if you take this at night. It relaxes the throat, so you tend to snore if you take this at bedtime. F 39 10 years

OXAZEPAM  (OXAZEPAM):  Oxazepam is used to treat anxiety and also acute alcohol withdrawal. This medication belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines which act on the brain and nerves (central nervous system) to produce a calming and an anti-seizure effect. It works by enhancing the effects of a certain natural substance in the body (GABA). This medication may also be used for sleep (insomnia)   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
