So, I had a bout of insomnia around 1 month or so ago, and the doctor prescribed Zopiclone. I took one tablet and slept 13 hours, the effect was great! The next day I decided not to take one, but didn't sleep all night, then around 6 am I had to pee excessively and got bad shakes. I went to the doctor and they examined my urine and said there was a possibility I had a bladder infection, and I was given antibiotics. I continued to take the zopiclone and the antibiotics, and the bladder problem went away eventually, although I got other side effects such as dizziness from the zopiclone.
After 2 and a half weeks of zopiclone use, the doctor prescribed me 15 mg of Mirtazapine for just sleep problems at the time, although I was suffering from depression as well, mostly because of the lack of sleep. It worked a charm, and after around 5 days of what I think was withdrawal dizziness from Zopiclone, I had a good solid week and a half of sleep and feeling back to normal.
Then, around a week ago, I couldn't sleep again, so I decided to take zopiclone again, simply because I had to work a lot and couldn't afford not to sleep. Around a day or two after I started the zopiclone again, I needed to wee a lot again, firstly simply because a lot of urine was coming out, then constantly needing to go with little coming out every hour. It's been around 3-4 days since this started, and now I still need to go a lot, and I now have pain in my lower abdomen, sort of cramp-like.
So, it seems kind of odd that both times when I started taking zopiclone, bladder problems occured, could it be a side effect, or could it cause a UTI to occur? I am a guy in his mid-20's, so UTI's are uncommon in my category.
