Dear User,
Thanks for using health care magic.

From the available description it appears that you are doing over with temazepam doses.
I failed to understand that how someone prescribed 20 mg to you. as 20 mg is not available strength in Market.
Doses of temazepam are in range of 7.5 mg to 30 mg a day and it should not be used beyond two weeks.
If you are not doing well even with 80 mg than this is not a drug for you. You need to consult again to discuss the choice of hypnotic suitable for you. The consequences of one night use of 120 mg can be very deleterious on your health. It is not advisable to use 120 mg at any cost.


'Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help".
Thanks
