      I dropped my dosage down to 10mg once for a few months,

      thought i would be the dr, i was sooo worried about being addicted to them..i had heard a bit about them......lol......,they just did nothing for me, i went to the dr and he said: you have worked hard to get the correct dosage youve been put on 25mg for a good reson..now go back on it.mm m..i did..never looked back....some people take 75mg even 100mg...I'd be like a zombie...so working out the right dose for you/me does take time..maybe you need yours upped a bit?? ..be blessed Kirsty and have a lovely day😍😍

      Hi irene, I take zoppiclone 7.5mg at night to help me sleep.  I deliberately just put up with my pain everyday, and except for Tramadol to help settle the back of my head and neck junctions, I only now take ibruprophen when I'm at an extreme stage before going into a full  'Bad Flare up'...  The ibruprohen is for my dam headaches.  Once in a Flare nothing touches me..  even the pain I live with everyday never ever is 'gone'. it's there always, and it's levels simply vary from bad to worse to major flares....

      If I didn't take the Tramadol to help ease the back of my head and neck, I'm basically a total head case... my whole of spine into my head would have me smashing my head and back repetitively into a wall to try to stop the horrid constant nerve reactions in my head and spine....  I practically I go into 'body/head shock'..  wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I have huge Pain issues everyday, and it is bad enough but that business would have me 'off the face of the earth'..it's so indescribable.
