Flurazepam is a medication that falls under the benzodiazepine family (anti-anxiety) and is prescribed for patients who are experiencing anxiety or insomnia. It works by affecting certain chemicals in the brain, which helps to relieve symptoms of anxiety.
Common side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and dry mouth among others. Flurazepam should be taken as prescribed and never with other drugs or alcohol. People who take flurazepam are at a higher risk of experiencing withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking the drug and these can include anxiety, confusion, irritability, seizures, mood swings and insomnia.
