Temazepam is a benzodiazepine medication that is sometimes used to treat symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, such as anxiety and insomnia. However, it is generally not the first choice medication for this purpose, as there are other benzodiazepines that are more commonly used and have a longer duration of action. Additionally, like all benzodiazepines, temazepam can be habit-forming and can lead to dependence and addiction if not used as directed by a doctor. It is important to consult with a medical professional before using temazepam or any other medication for alcohol withdrawal.
