Going cold turkey with zopiclone

Posted , 6 users are following.

Has anyone just stopped taking zopiclone. My gp retired and new gp won't give me any more, have been trying to gradually wean myself off, only take 1/4 tablet now but getting awful anxiety with the withdrawal. She said I'm taking so little should just be able to stop, did manage to get 1 packet of diazepam to help with the anxiety but won't give me any more. Been told will have to go on citilapram if have sleep, anxiety issues in the future. I do want to come off them but feel would be better to continue decreasing them slowly as I've been on them 11 years, and don't want to be given an anti-depressant and then have similar problems in the future when trying to stop it..
