Pretty sure I've got Lymphoma cancer and Zopiclone is the cause...

Posted , 4 users are following.

Got all these pea sized lumps in my neck and arms and groin, like probably 30 in total... Had a severe rash for about 10 years which started about 6 months into my zopiclone use, been using it for around 10 years started on 3.75mg and up to 15mg - the rash looks suspiciously like t cell lymphoma which is a form of cancer that is just a skin rash, but obviously progresses from there... I've had a few biopsys on the rash (which covers most of my body - but neither shown it... However you can't obviously test every bit of the rash only small samples so I'm not sure if the biopsy is that effective, anyway 2 years later I now have all these pea sized lumps, which I'm waiting for tests but pretty sure its the lymph nodes, thing is I'm only 32 years old. I shouldn't be dealing with this... Insomnia robbed me of life, I started zopiclone to get a life only to feel like its now being taken away...

    Ok, im not really sure if this pertains but i think i might have the same problem only mine is caused by benzos. Eleven years ago i was perscribed xanax and within a year i started getting hives. Developed a tolerance quickly to xanies and my doc just added kpins on top- problem solved right? Well rash comes and goes still but i did develope a bad iv benzo habbit for the last three years. Now ive got alot of large pea sized lumps in all of the lymph spots. Given the close connection with z-drugs and benzos can this be cancer? I feel ok though.

    OMW this is scary. I don't have any pea size things but I also developed a rash and yeah I am addicted to Zopiclone ( same class as benzoate) o have had it twice weird rash you could actually see my veins pumped up while it spread. I had a steroid injection to get rid of it.

    Anyone have any kind of explanation??? sad

      I guess i should clarify... i was only shooting the last three years i used benzos and some zdrugs but have been clean almost a year now. But it wasnt until about the time i got treatment and got clean the lumps started spreading(as i have always had one under my arm). Now they are everywhere just under the skin. No health insurance so i cant have them biopsied.

    Hi guys I just need some advice I have been getting zopiclone from the internet I've been doing it for years I opened up to a counsellor the other day and now I'm scared that they're going to stop me from doing that. Today in 24 hours I have done 16 7.5 mg. Can anybody let me know what's the most they've done at the worst time I am seeking help now my doctors are useless 4 years I've been asking for help and it's only been now that somebody has looked and listened I have been diagnosed with adult ADHD everything started to fall into place so I did the test that you have to do and I came up quite highly on it. I have told him now that someone is listening to me all my life I have felt different been different and couldt understand why there is a very long tedious backstory but I don't want to go into that I just want to know that I'm not the only one suffering. Even to me 18 7.5mg is a lot I do have acute insomnia and have done for many years so if there's somebody that I could talk to who knows and understands and doesn't judge me. So I'm asking is there anybody that can talk with me or somebody that has been where I am now I'm scared of how tolerant my body is to them please help
