The dual use of opioids and temazepam by drug injectors in Glasgow (Scotland).

Author information

  • 1Addiction Research Group, (ARGUS), University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.


In recent years much attention has been drawn to the use of buprenorphine (Temgesic) by heroin injectors in Glasgow and elsewhere. Glasgow has also witnessed a parallel increase in use of the benzodiazapine temazepam, often used as a 'cocktail' with buprenorphine. This paper presents new evidence that, although buprenorphine use among Glasgow drug injectors may now be declining, the use of temazepam-opioid cocktails has continued.
