This medication is used for the short-term treatment of patients with trouble sleeping (insomnia). It is generally used for 7-10 days.

Quazepam belongs to a class of medications called benzodiazepines. It acts on your brain to produce a calming effect.
Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using quazepam and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions regarding the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
