quit resoril/temazepam insomnia


Recommended Posts

Hi, I took Ambien, then temazepam for insomnia for close to 15 years then they stopped working so I abruptly quit them in early March.  No guidance from prescribing doctor so I did not know I should have tapered slowly.  I only sleep about 2-3 hours a night now and need some advice/help on what I can do to improve my sleep.

Thank you

Hi VC70 :hug: Welcome to Benzobuddies


I am glad you are here, stopping these drugs abruptly can bring on severe symptoms.  I am sorry you’re having sleep issues, I had insomnia it will get better for you.  I will leave a link to the insomnia board, time is our healer,  it will take time for the CNS to recover.  Feel free to post to any of the dedicated boards.  We have a wonderful community of people here.  Our members have been through all aspects of benzodiazepine use and withdrawal and are more than willing to share their experiences.


If you can take time to read Prof Ashton’s manual, she describes and explains withdrawal symptoms.


I will put a link to the Ashton manual here for you: Professor Ashtons Manual


Here is link to the support boards
