    Post Temazepam with PLMD

    I'm a 17 yearold male diagnosed with PLMD in January of this year. I was put on 15 mg capsules of tempazepam and told to work up to 30 mg's if I felt like I needed it. I was to go back for a recheck in early april, but have since been reschedules twice and my recheck is now in June. About a month ago, I developed a mysterious back problem which doctors have been unable to diagnose. The pain is similar to a blown disc, but all tests are normal. Seems there's pain, numbness, muscle spasms, and burning bilaterally with no obvious problem. Anyway, I was put on vicodin and told to get off temazepam. So I weaned my self off of it, and have had this worst time sleeping since the day before I started the stuff. The pain is better now, there is still numbness and burning, but i stopped taking the vicodin. I've read temazepam (restoril) is only for short-term usage. Is that true? Should I demand another appointment with the doc and get on something else? I've used kilonapin (sp?) and it made me very antisocial and depressed, temazepam was working very well. Is it linked with the back problem and muscle spasms or what? Anybody have any experience with it?

    Hi - I would get a second opinion from another specialist.
    Good luck
