Acute Withdrawal how long does it last?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Come off zopiclone 10 days ago after tapering off, been on it 12 years. Had awful anxiety, sleep problems throughout taper and have accelerated since coming off it. Reading on- line seems acute withdrawal seems to last between 1-4 weeks, just wondered what others experience of this is. Do things improve after the acute period, as hell at the moment. Got at appt with GP in couple weeks but don't want to go on more drugs and face the same scenario in few months time, also GP'seem very ill informed, and unwilling to acknowledge the damage these drugs can inflict.
