    Hi. I don't knowing they are any actual tips but I found that knowing it was temporary and just side effects made it easier to get through. I knew thetvwoupd go and I would get better. Also knowing I was feeling rough from the tablets meant that they were getting into my system. Talking on here really helped. It made me realise I wasn't alone and the advice made it easier to get through each day. Hope this helps a little...

    I take Zopiclone for the insomnia, my doctor has prescribed it long term for me. I drink loads of fluid for the dry mouth. I also have a non existent sex drive but there is no cure for that apart from coming off them, which I'm currently doing after being on them for well over ten years. I don't get the other symptoms I'm afraid
