Insomnia Home > Doral Drug Information

Doral® (quazepam) is a benzodiazepine medication approved for the treatment of insomnia. The drug causes sleepiness by enhancing the effects of a naturally calming chemical in the brain. It comes in the form of a tablet and is typically taken at bedtime. Although Doral is generally recommended for short-term use, long-term use may be appropriate in certain situations.
Before beginning treatment with Doral, information on this medication's potential risks should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider. Also, tell him or her if you have any other medical conditions or are taking any other drugs, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
