    As far as I know, the only things stronger than zopiclone is flunitrazepam (Rohypnol) and some of the barbiturates. After that, as far as I know, you're into anaesthesia.

    Rohypnol, I suspect, is truly unlikely to work beyond 28 days.

    Other drugs may work with zopiclone to improve its effect, but I don't think that any of them are particularly safe.

      So that is what the doctor meant about my options for sleeping meds should zolpiclone stop working well long-term.

      I take 2-3 per night for the past three years now. Antipsychotics also help but it feels like you have been hit by a car when you wake up for the first week.

      14-21.5 mg zolpiclone

      75mg seroquel

      225mg venlafaxine (morning)

      Glad I got off diazepam after having 40-70mg per day at my worst.

    My doctor has prescribed dosulepin, its an antidepressant which takes awhile to work.  Taking 1 a day, building up to 3 a day in 3 weeks.  Have you thought about seeing a psychologist/hypnotherapist to see if there has been psychological problems in the past which are stopping you sleeping.  Also you could try the on-line " Sleepio" which is an CBT course which helps to get the sleep back on track.

    Very simple, they buy them off the Internet from the many overseas suppliers that you can find, and who will ship them in plain packages to your door, or you find a friendly private doctor, who will write you a private prescription in exchange for his 'consultation fee'.
