    I wanted to report on Restoril. I was given this for insomnia/anxiety and it is great.

    For several months I had insomnia and would wake up with severe anxiety.

    Almost immediately after starting Restoril, I woke up feeling like a normal person.

    I don't take it every night to avoid tolerance issues. On alternate nights I take a Benadryl and Ambien. The Benadryl also helps because I have hives.

    I was given 15 mg Restoril. I try to start out taking half but usually wind up taking the entire 15 mg.

    Tonight I am combining 1/2 dose and 25 mg Benadryl.

    It is all trial and error, but if you have insomnia with anxiety - Restoril is great.

    I've been taking Stillnox to help me sleep, but it's not working and at $32 a packet at that. In Australia Restoril is called Temazapam, which I'm going to ask my Dr about. I hope it works for me!!

    I believe it will help you. I have read alot about this drug on other forums and all positive. The great thing is, it addresses the anxiety in addition to insomnia.
