Temazepam with Truvada and Issentress therapy
Sep 13, 2013
I have been taking Temazepam for 5 years now along with my Truvada and Issentress therapy...I have been reading about Temazepam and I am concern about the memory loss side effects along with many others so I have been trying to get out of it but I have awful withdrawls everytime...heart palpitations, insomnia and headaches if I dont take it for one night....my doctor seems not to be concerned about it and just lowered the dose...however I want to get rid if it ....can you please suggest a therapy to eliminate this drug once and for all? ( i am referring only to the temazepam, not the antivirals).... thank you!

Benzodiazepines can be addictive-stopping can be a challenge for many patients. Often working with a psychiatrist or addiction clinic will result in several options to consider about how to successful stop using drugs in that class for persons that are having problems withdrawing. KH
