Awful anxiety/phobias after withdrawal

Posted , 2 users are following.

Stopped Zopiclone 3 weeks ago. Suffered awful anxiety during last few weeks of tapering and since stopping. Awful phobias/OCD type symptoms, felt almost suicidal at times as they seem relentless. The sleep not too bad but finding driving virtually impossible and the only time I feel calm is if I'm in the house. Just wondered it anyone else suffered these symptoms and do they eventually ease. No help from GP at all they seem clueless and unwilling to acknowlege there is a serious problem with these drugs. Never had any problems before starting the zopiclone.

    This is withdrawal. I weaned off trazodone and klonopin. I went through all of that.....and then some.

    I am now post 14 months and still going through stuff. Remember waves and windows. This will happen, You have to learn that in a wave, know that you are healing. It's tough but you will get through it. The only thing that helps is time
