Due to my wife's mental illness I started taking Zop to get to sleep as my insomnia worsened. Initially St John's wort at 1000mg (herbal tea), did the trick.
I did used to take 7.5mg, and whittled it down to 3.75mg, and have been on that dose for some time.
I also take 2700mg of St John's wort for anxiety, and 650mg of magnesium.
Numerous people have suggested switching to Melatonin 3mg sustained release tablets, but I'm unsure what 3.75mg relates to in the Melatonin tablets. It seems so hit and miss, and also the posts with regard to withdrawal symptoms coming off Zopiclone are scary.
I was expecting to switch without issues, but in reading the discussion I now realise that some of the associated symptoms I've also had for years are associated with the Zopiclone, eg: vertigo, which I take ginger for to relive the symptoms.
My pharamacist said 1/2 of one tablet should be 1/2 of a 3mg tablet.
The Eurovital 3mg sustained release tablet, has other ingredients with no mention of the amounts of the other ingreidents. I'm worried that there may be a clash with the Magnesium (that I take for cramps), and the St John's Wort.
