    Yes,

    The best option is to talk to them... And just be honest... I will say if you are taking more then one they may only give you one a day if they do prescribe you any, but it's better then nothing... 

    I'm lucky as I have a really supportive GP... In the last year or so I've gone from 4-5 a night to just 1/2 a tablet (3.75mg) and I'm feeling so much better for it.... I have another week before I start the hardest phase of going down to 1/4 of a tablet a night every 4 weeks... I'm also working closely with a support group called talking therapies and the drugs and alcohol team.... 

    I'm really looking forward to getting off these bloody things..... They have had a hold on me for the last 7years of my life.... I just hope they haven't done too much damage. 

    Time to wake up from the Zopiclone haze that has been clouding you life and take it by the balls

    Well the best thing is to talk to your doc and explain exactly how many you take/need.

    Alas they are not all helpful. I asked mine for a crossover to diazepam but he refused. Basically he is doing nothing and just prescribing me enough for 4/day every 2 weeks. Does he care...? no, he would rather not have the problem and drive home in his BMW every night and forget his patients.

      Your GP is indeed dangerous to me.

      The maximum dose is,15mg a day.

      You are over dosing every day.

      Diazepam is the way forward to get off these drugs

      Is there another partner in the practice you could seek help from. This Dr is doing nothing for you. Xx
