    I have not found a study on withdrawal of zopiclone. I have been on it for 4 years. Started out at 5 mg and then over time up to 15 mg. i started decreasing slowly the last 2 months and now down to 5 mg. I have found a supplement that has helped immensely! Also exercise, meditation, positive affirmations and prayer all help! Good luck!

    Google the Ashton programme, you will find the answer there. Lots of doctors have used Professer Ashton's advice to help reduce benzos and hypnotics.

    I have been loaned a Tens machine to help managing chronic pain - whilst it's not controlling the pain, it relaxes me so much in the evening that I haven't been taking zop drops. It's amazing, I'm sleeping like a baby. I have a 17 year addiction and have tried many times to stop but by 3rd night of not sleeping, when my thoughts are crazy and my temper short I have always gone back to them. I really hope the Tens machine continues to make me drowsy. I sincerely hope this may help others. Good luck.
