Been on zopiclone about 12 years, taken 1/4 tablet every night for about last 3 years after husband ill. Very unsympathetci new gp refused give me any more said would have no probs coming off them had to just stop. Tried October last year awful anxiety and insomnia , real problems driving and developed phobias about some things .some days felt I didn't want to go on anymore. Turns out just stopping worst thing I could have done
Had a packet left and got some off internet so 6 weeks into gradually weaning off them, down to 5 nights a week, anxiety still not good, and insomnia still problem. Just feel no end to it at the moment just wondered if anyone else could give advice as to how long before symptoms start improving. No help from gp so just getting help off internet. Did contact addiction centre who said the dosage makes no difference the withdrawal symptoms will be just as bad if you've been on them while like me. Taking Passion Flower drops in evening to help sleep. These drugs are absolute hell to try and get off!!
