    The only way to stop the full force of the

    Withdrawals would be drop 1/2 tab every

    3/5 days. You may feel slightly ill when you

    Drop your dose until you Stabilize on that

    Dose. Then another 3/5 days drop a bit


    Hope this helps.

    It's an addictive medication. Many users didn't know it was habit forming when they went on it.

    The withdrawal will be different for each person, depending on their dosage and circumstances, I suppose.

    I did experience a bad week when I stopped taking it BUT I would happily do it again to be rid of the zopiclone.

    Don't be affected by other people. Do what's best for you.

    If you wean yourself down by one each nite I dont believe many withdrawal.  was taking 7 a night and now down to one a night with no problems at all.  finally sleeping not bad.  at my doctors next week am going to ask for prescribtion for only 1 a nite.  I have to pick mine up weekly.  Then going to try going off completely.  A few people on the site im on have gone cold turkey with no withdrawals by weaning down then none.  good luck

    Well, I had so much side effects, hyperexcitability/sensibility, constant tinnitus and vertigo, irritability, opressive or reccurent thoughts, blurry vision,  internal vibrations, insomnia, dehydration, extreme anxiety, tension in my jaw, teeth grinding at night, etc. It's been 6 months since the last pill smile  I still have a lot of symptoms but I feel like Im on the road to recovery :D At least now, I sleep well everynight and I can fall asleep during the day if I need to rest....So don't worry. Take it one day at the time. Your body is much more stronger than what you might think
