ProSom is prescribed primarily for insomnia but also for causing relaxation. It is the brand name for the drug estazolam and is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines.
ProSom (estazolam) comes with a warning that it should be used for only a short time to treat insomnia. Withdrawal is felt after as little as 7 to 10 nights of use.
All sleep medicines can cause dependence, especially when used regularly or at high doses.
You can quickly develop a tolerance for ProSom (estazolam) and require more to “sleep”. This is dangerous and can often lead to addiction.
Do not drink alcohol while you are taking it. It can increase some of the side effects, and could possibly cause a fatal overdose.
