Temazepam is central nervous system depressant. It is a hypnotic used in the short-term treatment of insomnia and anxiety.
Tablets and oral solution will be swallowed. Users have been known to inject Temazepam - it causes extreme irritation and tissue damage if intravenously injected along with the other risks associated with using drugs in this way.
If injected, needles, syringes and water.
Temazepam is a benzodiazepine prescribed for its sedative qualities in the short term treatment of insomnia. It may be prescribed for anxiety, restlessness and depression. It may also be prescribed as an anticonvulsant medicine, a muscle relaxant, and a pre-surgery sedative.
Diverted from manufacturers, pharmacies and GPs prescriptions.
Temazepam is a highly physically addictive drug. Withdrawal symptoms may be very severe, even life threatening, if use is just stopped. It is therefore paramount that Temazepam is reduced gradually using a reduction programme. GPs might be the first port of call for someone wanting to reduce or come off a drug like Temazepam and a GP can prescribe a reduction scheme to gradually wean off it. A GP may also refer to a community drug service or ‘street agency’ to provide additional support in the way of information and advice, counselling, and sometimes support groups and complementary therapies such as acupuncture. Some services have extended working hours and may offer weekend support.

Parents & other relatives

Many drug agencies also provide lots of advice and support to parents, family members and partners of people using drugs. They may provide relative support groups or advice, guidance and counselling on a one to one basis.
