    ask your dr to try you on something else there are plenty of drugs out there that should help you or give these a bit longer to take effect tell him they are putting you two much weight on and you do not want this to happen they obviously not the right one for you and you want to be motivated not half alseep all the time keep posting

    hi lisa

    some one on one of the threads asked there dr if they could have sleeping tablets to help them instead of going cold turkey if this would help you ask him or go to a dr out of your district tell them you have run out of them you don't need a reapet perscription to do this and they dont ring your dr i no this is right yrs ago i had a narrow boat and called at dr's on way round on our journey as we went 6 months at a time i used to ring my own dr's before i new when i was going when i put a request in for them got them then on way round walked into a dr's and request them again the dr only new when i got back i had some while away but never in 8yrs of doing this questioned me on it so hope this can help you the same way mine was zopiclone 7.5 twice at night but its worth a try you need to take a bus drive away to get them you tell the dr were you get them from you are on a holiday or you wont get them then do the same again till you can get a stock up on them.

    good luck
