Certain medications can help to lessen the severity of a temazepam withdrawal. Substituting your medication for a longer-acting benzodiazepine such as diazepam might help to prevent certain withdrawal symptoms from occurring. There may also be medication or nutritional supplements that will help to ease the symptoms that you experience, such as anxiety or aches and pains.
Some people may mix a “downer” like Restoril with an “upper,” or central nervous system stimulant, like cocaine or methamphetamine. Using a stimulant and depressant together can be dangerous. This combination pulls a person’s body in two different directions, an effect that could cause profound stress on the heart and other important functions. This may cause a person not to realize how intoxicated they are, bringing them to use more of the other substance. Doing so could cause overdose.
