Hi has anyone been addicted to zopiclone I spoke to my gp as my psychiatrist has left and keep seeing locums. The locum had put me on zopiclone for not sleeping I've been on them for 8 weeks now every other night the night I don't take them I'm wide awake all night. My gp said I have two options and I don't know what to do I can either stop them and not sleep until I crash or stay on them and get a decent night sleep every other night

Hi. I've been taking them every night for well over a year which isn't recommended but I can't come off them because the backlash insomnia is torturous. I don't care if I lose years off my life as a result because not sleeping is not a life. Horrible medicine tho... Not at all good for you.

Me too I've been on them for nearly 3 years and have tried but can't sleep without them on balance I'd rather sleep than watching day turn to night awake with my head!!!

Not been on them but sound extremely addictive. It is a difficult choice because no sleep makes depression so much worse. Good luck with what you choose to do.
