Please can anyone tell me how they managed to get off a Zopiclone addiction. I take 7 tablets a day. Some times less but it's increasing. I am ready scared. Those who have been to doctors. What did they say? Taper off and how? I cannot afford to go and see a doctor at this point sad

    Hi Claire - I think you know the answer to your own question. You absolutely must start tapering this medication. It's highly addictive & of course it will be a bit difficult at first but all hard choices are. I happen to have Zopiclone in my bedside drawer & once in a while I take half a pill. I am fully aware of the risks & never, ever abuse it. If you want to get your life back you must start tapering this drug now. I think it unlikely you can do this without help. Please seek out whatever free resources which might be available to you. The amount you are taking is already dangerous. Wishing you the best! Try seeking out Narcotics Anonymous , they may be able to help you. Good luck. Maureen

    Hi Clair,

    It's ok. You can get off this drug but you need to feel in control and not anxious as this will make it even more difficult.

    Oh need to believe in yourself and your strengths..you are tougher than you think even though it probably doesn't feel like it at the moment...the main thing is that you have realised you have a problem so now you need to believe you can beat it...lots of people have so you can too.

    It will take a long time but we'll worth it when you get your life back..

    Please google the ASHTONS MANUAL and download it...read it as may times as you need to get to terms with what to do...it will have a schedule to follow .

    You need to focus on doing this to get off the drug...I found it very good and lots of people use it.

    Are you on an Anti depressant as well ?

    Dont panic...you can do this
