Oh dear I feel a little cheeky making this new thread as I am very aware that patient uk have a space for posting about zopiclone but it's you my friends that I want to share my experience with so my sincere apologies to admin for this.
Well I have to congratulate the doctor on his prescribing just the right medication for me.
I read up on the net about them and some places said they can take quite a while to start to kick in so I took mine at 8:30 wanting to be in bed and asleep no later than 10pm because that is the time I would normally go to bed when working - and the whole point of getting my sleep pattern back is to enable me to return to work.
Well by 9:30pm I was in bed with the whole of my body just feeling like jelly - my brain had no control what so ever over my arms, hands, fingers legs, feet - not even my head!
I didn't feel sleepy or drowsy - just extremely relaxed so relaxed I had grteat difficulty getting my arms or legs to do anything.
At that point (I'd tried to pick the remote for TV up off the floor and as I bent forward my head just flopped right down and was very heavy to get it back up) my daughter turned everything off for me (youngest one) turned my light out and pow! Gone! Me - not her - well I assume she would have gone too lol.
Woke once in night but I haven't got a clue what time as I couldn't be bothered to look at the clock, I just turned over and went straight back to sleep until 7am.
The downside - the most disgusting taste in my mouth and throat. It is still there now and oh yuk! Tried to drink glass of water this morning and it tasted like dirty washing up water YUK! and double YUK YUK
Thankfully my coffee taste ok.
The taste didn't stop me from sleeping which I thought it might because it really is disgusting. Looking back - I don't think anything would have stopped me from sleeping.
The good thing about these tablets is I won't be wanting to take them if I'm feeling anxious or depressed during the day - they don't space me out - they just make me go extremely floppy (relaxed with an OTT) I can't say I enjoyed that sensation at all - but when asleep you don't know so yes - these ones will be kept just for that purpose!
Oh I could hug that doctor.
Good thing is I don't feel hungover this morning - it took me a while to get out of bed when I woke up and was a bit of an effort to get to the kitchen for my coffee but once up and moving I feel fine.
Brain Zaps? Well they are nothing more now than a few light headed spells, they come and go but are bearable, I think Saturday - was it Saturday when I ended up throwing up because of them? Well that day was the worse and they had me in tears but since then they have become less frequent and certainly less severe.
Do you think it would be unethical of me to buy him a thank you gift?
Why oh why didnt I see him 7/8 weeks ago rather than some female nutter of a doctor who appears to give no regard to what the patient is saying to her.
Yes. I think after another nights sleep like last night - I'll be good and ready to sit down with this doctor tomorrow and go through everything that has happened to me over the last 12 months without breaking down into tears and exploding into an anxiety attack.
I'm a little concerned as to what he meant by long term treatment - but I'm going to put all my trust into this guy and try and let him guide me back to good health.
Admin again my apologies for posting about zopiclone here, I beg that you leave it here for allthe people who have shared and supported me these last few weeks.
If you want to make a copy of it for the zopiclone threads then please do - but please leave it here too.
Here's hoping you all wake feeling good today.
Love & hugs
