Published Studies Related to Restoril (Temazepam)
Temazepam 10mg does not affect breathing and gas exchange in patients with severe normocapnic COPD. [2010.04]
BACKGROUND: Benzodiazepines can improve sleep quality, but are also thought to cause respiratory depression in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aims of this study were to assess the effects of temazepam on indices of circadian respiratory function, dyspnea, sleep quality, and sleepiness in patients with severe COPD and insomnia... CONCLUSIONS: One week usage of temazepam 10mg does not influence circadian respiratory function, dyspnea, and sleepiness in patients with stable, severe, normocapnic COPD and insomnia and it improves total sleep time and subjective sleep latency. However, this is a preliminary explorative study for assessing the feasibility to perform a larger study on this topic. The clinical implications of this study are very limited.

Highway driving in the elderly the morning after bedtime use of hypnotics: a comparison between temazepam 20 mg, zopiclone 7.5 mg, and placebo. [2009.10]
A major problem related to hypnotic drug use is residual sedation the morning after bedtime administration. This constitutes a particular safety hazard for patients who have to drive a car the next morning... The magnitude of impairing effects in the elderly was comparable with those found previously in younger volunteers.
Effects of 2-Week Treatment With Temazepam and Diphenhydramine in Elderly Insomniacs: A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial. [2008.04]
A randomized, controlled, crossover clinical study compared 14-night treatment with 15 mg temazepam, 50 mg diphenhydramine, and placebo in elderly individuals with insomnia (mean age, 73.9 years; range, 70-89 years). Primary outcome measures were subjective assessments of sleep recorded on sleep diaries...
Temazepam at high altitude reduces periodic breathing without impairing next-day performance: a randomized cross-over double-blind study. [2006.12]
The aim of the study was to examine the efficacy and safety of temazepam on nocturnal oxygenation and next-day performance at altitude. A double-blind, randomized, cross-over trial was performed in Thirty-three healthy volunteers... We conclude that at high altitude temazepam is effective in reducing periodic breathing, and is safe to use, without any adverse effect upon next-day performance.
Clinical Trials Related to Restoril (Temazepam)
Comparison of Temazepam and Acetazolamide to Treat Difficulty Sleeping at High Altitude [Recruiting]
More than 70% of visitors to high altitude suffer poor sleep. The present study seeks to
answer the question: Which medication is associated with better sleep at high altitude:
temazepam or acetazolamide? The investigators hypothesis is that one medication will be
associated with higher subjective sleep scores than the other. The study will compare the
sleep quality of 100 subjects as they take either temazepam or acetazolamide during a visit
to high altitude.
Pars Plana Vitrectomy (PPV) Versus Preoperative Intravitreal Bevacizumab Plus PPV to Treat Diabetic Tractional Retinal Detachment (IBETRA) [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to compare the amount of intraoperative intraocular bleeding
during 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for diabetic traction retinal detachment (TRD)
with and without preoperative intravitreal bevacizumab treatment.
Effects of Temazepam in Patients With Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disease [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of temazepam during sleep and in daytime
on dyspnea, gas exchange and sleep quality in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary
The study hypothesis is that temazepam does not produce any adverse respiratory effects
during sleep in patients with COPD. In contrast, it may result in an beneficiary effect
because it positively affects the sleep quality and sleep structure which may result in more
alertness and less daytime sleepiness and less dyspnea during the day.
Study to Investigate the Effects of Melatonin, Temazepam & Zolpidem on Sleep EEG in Men and Women [Recruiting]
This study has been designed to compare the effects of melatonin with those of drugs
(temazepam and zolpidem) regularly prescribed for the treatment of insomnia, in healthy,
The study will take place at one centre. Volunteers consenting to participate in the study
will have their eligibility confirmed by a screening panel, including spending one night in
the sleep clinic to acclimatize to the study procedures. Blood and urine samples will be
collected during this overnight visit.
Volunteers continuing to remain eligible will receive, in turn, melatonin, temazepam,
zolpidem and placebo as a single dose during 4 treatment phases lasting one night and
separated by at least five days. Neither the volunteer nor the study staff will be aware of
which drug each volunteer is receiving at each treatment phase.
The volunteer's electrical brain activity will be measured whilst sleeping. Other aspects
of sleep, including measures of sleep quality, will also be measured. Urine samples will be
collected during each treatment phase.
Volunteers will undergo an assessment of health prior to departure from the clinic at their
last treatment phase, and study staff will telephone 2 weeks later to obtain further
information on their health status.
The primary study objective is to compare EEG power spectra during nonREM sleep in the
slow-wave frequencies following administration with melatonin to temazepam.
Anesthesia for Pars Plana Vitrectomy (PPV) With Insulin Needle [Recruiting]
Periocular blockade with 12. 5 mm needle is as effective as block with 25 mm needle for
patients undergoing Pars Plana Vitrectomy.
