Temazepam is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines and affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause sleep problems ( insomnia). Temazepam is used to treat insomnia symptoms, such as trouble falling or staying asleep and should be used only for a short time, generally between seven and 10 nights. The drug is habit-forming. Overdose symptoms may include extreme drowsiness, confusion, muscle weakness, slurred speech, tremors, a slow heartbeat, shallow breathing, feeling light-headed, fainting, seizure (black-out or convulsions), and coma.
