Temazepam 30mg capsules
Temazepam 30mg capsules is a benzodiazepine that affects chemicals in the brain to calm down your nervous system, helping you to stay asleep.
Take temaze just before going to bed, when you are ready to go to sleep. This medicine works very quickly to put you to sleep. Do not take this medicine when your schedule does not permit you to get a full night’s sleep (7 to 8 hours). If you must wake up before this, you may continue to feel drowsy and may experience memory problems, because the effects of the medicine have not had time to wear off.
