Zopiclone

zopiclone (7,5MG) for Insomnia

Works well to get you asleep, bitter taste in morning for a while but goes away after a while, I have been on Zopiclone a lot longer than I intended but it is very good for sleep... until you develop a tolerance 2 - 4 weeks after daily use. Then your back to square 1. 9/10

Zopiclone

zopiclone (7,5MG) for Insomnia

Leaves a really bad and bitter after taste in the morning that just won't go away. After a while, my tongue started to discolor and became white and swollen. Tastebuds are red and really sensitive and I don't enjoy food the way I used to. I did help me fall asleep in the beginning but after a while, the body gets used to it and you need a higher dosage. Now, after a year and a half, it doesn't ...

zopiclone (7,5mg) for insomnia

I have taken Zopiclone every now and then for my chronic insomnia. It is very effective in getting me to sleep but it doesn't keep me asleep. On Zopiclone I sleep for around 4 to 5 hours and then wake up but I usually can get back to sleep. After about 20 mins of taking Zopiclone I begin to feel it's effects, when I stand up I feel my limbs getting heavy and sort of a drunk feeling but it's...

zopiclone (7,5mg) for insomnia

I've been taking zopiclone since 2010 for my insomnia that was caused by anxiety and depression. At first I was on 7.5mg a day and it worked really well than it wasn't working as well so my doctor switched me to quetiapine as an alternative. I was on 75mg of that and it worked well but it is also an antipsychotic so I wasnt on it long. When I went back to zopiclone I was given 7.5mg x2 a night....

Nozinan

levomepromazine maleate (25mg) for insomnia

Nozinan is a completely non-addictive sleeping tablet that also happens to be super cheap. I can't take Nozinan during the week because I inevitable sleep in on work days. I only take it at the weekend and sleep as much as I like, you feel great when you wake up after taking a Nozinan.

Mirtazapine

mirtazapine (15mg) for insomnia

The first 2 days were good, I slept well. Then I just started getting more and more drowsy and was tired. Would even go to bed in the afternoon. I halved the tablet I was taking, which had already been halved so I was on 1/4 of a tablet. This didn't make a difference. I still tried to carry on with it but I had to stop in the end. I was totally out of it, didn't know what was going on and I eve...

Zopiclone

03/08/2017 | | 18moderated by Philip
zopiclone (7,5mg) for insomnia

Because I take aripiprazol for psychosis I have sleepless nights. Then I was given zopiclone and I started taking them at 7.5 mg. The zopiclone has made me lose about 0.5-1 kg a day. I started off overweight at 79 kg then when I had to stop taking the zopiclone, I was 59 kg, so much weight in such a short space of time (21 days). I was being really healthy. The GP had no explanation. Since I've...

Zopiclone

07/07/2017 | | 22moderated by Charlotte
zopiclone (7,5mg) for insomnia

I've used zopiclone for a long time for chronic insomnia because of a delayed sleep phase syndrome. To start off with it was excellent, but the sleep problems are chronic and I don't want to have to take these every day because they are addictive and your tolerance increases. All of a sudden I noticed that I had started taking them earlier than necessary and that my memory was failing me. I swi...

Seroquel

quetiapine fumarate (25mg) for insomnia

Since I was 17 I've had problems sleeping, mostly difficulty falling asleep. Apparently I have a delayed sleep phase syndrome in combination with ADHD. quetiapine works for me because it reduces the continual stream of thoughts going through my head so I can fall asleep more easily. I also took zopiclone for a while but that really affected my memory and it was addictive. This works better for ...

Zopiclone

zopiclone (7,5mg) for insomnia

My 2 experiences of zopiclone are very different. Afterwards, and completely by chance, I found out that an acquaintance of mine had been 'given' zopiclone at about the same time as me, and in a similar dose. They had the same the same experience as me: the day after felt really hounded, severe stomach and bowel problems, and headache. For me, this was a drastic increase: every evening I'd been...

gabapentin (300mg) for insomnia

I was given Gabapentine to sleep, which it helps with. But the side effects meant I had to stop using this drug. Side effects: hair loss, burning skin on my head, burning tongue, burning soles and brittle nails.
