Brief Answer:
Kindly refer to the detailed answer

Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the information provided by you I understand your concern and would like to tell you that ringing sensation in the ears is not a side effect of flurazepam and can be taken as anxiolytic.

Common side effects of Flurazepam can be dizziness, drowsiness, lethargy and light headedness, and elderly patients are prone to side effects of benzodiazepines.

Kindly consult with a Psychiatrist for further management.

Hope to have been helpful.

Kind Regards

Detailed Answer:
It's a habit forming drug and it's not advisable to continue it without proper medical guidance. However if symptoms are quite bothersome then it's advisable to take the medicine and slowly reduce the dose and finally tapper it off over a corse of couple of months.

yes the ringing and other side effects has to do with Flurizipam withdrawal when
it was on back order and I took something else I had the same symptoms so
this medication forcing me to go back to it even I don't want to.

I have written prescription order for 15 mg only for one month.
Your last answer was good. I knew that but wanted to be sure.
I was put on it for Insomnia 10 years ago it doesn't treat Insomnia
because it has high half short life 250 hours.

Detailed Answer:
The only recommended documented use of Flurazepam is the treatment of Insomnia.

It's elimination half life is 48 to 120 hrs. And it reaches its peak plasma concentration in 0.5 to 3 hrs.

One month prescription won't be enough to treat the withdrawl symptoms. After one month again the trouble will arise. Now you have to decide whether you want to treat the problem yourself or take a proper guided help.

Detailed Answer:
Am thankful to you for understanding my point.

Ma'am cost is not an issue. I would like to give without any charges but the laws of the state and medical ethics do not allow me to issue prescriptions without a physical examination. I can just help you here by giving my opinion and guidance.
