Health Canada has issued new restrictions concerning the use of benzodiazepines and benzodiazepine-like prescription drugs. To read the full Health Canada Advisory, visit Health Canada's web site at www.hc-sc.gc.ca.

Behaviour changes: Dalmane (Flurazepam) may cause changes in behavior. If you experience aggressiveness and extroversion, confusion, restlessness, or hallucinations, or notice these changes in a family member who is taking this medication, contact your doctor.

Complex sleep behaviour: There have been reports of people sleepwalking and performing more complex activities after having taken Dalmane (Flurazepam), but not being aware of what they were doing. People have been reported as driving, leaving the house, making and eating food, and not remembering doing so the next morning.

Performing these activities puts yourself and others at risk. If you are made aware of these sleep-behaviours, let your doctor know as soon as possible.

Confusion: Dalmane (Flurazepam) affects mental efficiency, e.g., concentration, attention, and vigilance. The risk of confusion is greater for seniors and for people with brain injury.

Depression: Dalmane (Flurazepam), like other benzodiazepines, has been known to cause mood swings and symptoms of depression. If you have depression or a history of depression, discuss with your doctor how Dalmane (Flurazepam) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dalmane (Flurazepam), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of depression such as poor concentration, changes in weight, changes in sleep, decreased interest in activities, or notice them in a family member who is taking Dalmane (Flurazepam), contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Dalmane (Flurazepam) may affect the mental or physical abilities needed to drive or operate machinery. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous tasks until you have determined how Dalmane (Flurazepam) affects you.

Memory disturbance: Medications such as Dalmane (Flurazepam) can cause memory loss (amnesia). Amnesia of varying severity has been reported following normal doses of Dalmane (Flurazepam). Elderly patients are at particular risk.
