The effectiveness of temazepam as a hypnotic: an open, multi-centre assessment in 804 patients with sleep disorders

Current Medical Research and Opinion
T V Harry, P A Johnson


An open, multi-centre study was carried out in 804 patients complaining of sleep disorders to assess the effectiveness and acceptance of temazepam as a hypnotic. Patients received between 10 mg and 30 mg (mean 16.4 mg) temazepam each night for a week. Subjective assessments using a self-administered questionnaire were made daily of the quality and quantity of sleep. The results showed that sleep induction was rapid and most patients enjoyed a relatively uninterrupted night's sleep, and awakened feeling refreshed. Patient acceptance was good and there was a low incidence of residual or other adverse effects of treatment.

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.
