Welcome to ehealthforum

Luvox is an antidepressant drug used for treating anxiety,depression etc.The drug is started with a small dose and if required the doses are adjusted accordingly.It has to be taken for time period depending on the response and cannot be stopped abrubptly otherwise side effects are reported.It might take few months for the drug to be effective but along with that you also need to increase the will power and do some form of meditation/Yoga which will help you in overcoming the symptoms.
Temazepan can cause side effects as flu like symptoms.If you are not able to sleep even after taking it for a week kindly discuss with your treating doctor regarding this as you might require dose adjustment or change of pill.Consider visiting your GP for evaluation.

Take Care!
