    This drug is not what I would personally recommend. It is a derivative of gabapentin which is used for seizures! Will send you a a link to a good reliable website that can advise you. Please do not switch to pregabalin. Look at the website, email your history through to them and wait for their advice.

    Pregabalin is only prescribed on a private prescription for anxiety and also causes you to put on weight.

    ask the doctor about The Ashton method  which is cutting down using diazepam.also mirtazapine helps which is an anti depressant. Take before bedtime and it helps with sleeping.

    i went cold turkey which is not advisable  but it worked for me although the first 4 weeks were hell. Bad dreams and not much sleep but now I am Zopiclone free. Hooray. Good Luck. X
