Euhypnos Forte (temazepam) for resistant insomnia: a clinical trial

The Journal of International Medical Research
C A Moon, M Schiller

Abstract

Seventy insomniac patients, previously unresponsive to conventional hypnotic dosage, were treated for seven nights with temazepam in 20 mg soft gelatin capsules (Euhypnos Forte). The patients adjusted the dose to suit themselves up to a maximum of 60 mg. Nineteen patients found that one 20 mg capsule suited them best in spite of previous lack of response to two 10 mg capsules, and were thus excluded from the final analysis. Out of the remaining fifty-one patients, thirty-five were best suited by 40 mg and sixteen by 60 mg of temazepam. Sleep was rated Very Good or Good by forty patients (78.4%) and significant hangover occurred in only four (7.8%), all of whom were on 40 mg. Adverse reactions were insignificant. Some observations by one author (CALM) on the significance of the results in the management of insomnia in general practice are included.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
