Temazepam (Temazepam 20mg Tablets for Short Term Insomnia)

Temazepam is a popular medicine approved for the short-term treatment of insomnia. It came into circulation in 1969 when the ability to treat sleep trouble was realized. By the late 1980's this drug was one of the most widely prescribed Benzodiazepines to deal with insomnia. Just like other Benzodiazepine drugs it also works by slowing down the excessive activity in the brain and produces a calming effect which induces quicker sleep. This actually relaxes muscles and hypnotizes the brain in a way that you forget about all worries and fall asleep in a few minutes.
