I was prescribed zopiclone 11 years ago (the night my mother died) - i'm 33.
Initially I was on 1 3.75, then that didn't work, so doc prescribed one 7.5, and again the usual after a while it was not enough, I started taking too many and then i'd be some nights without them as my prescription wasn't due.
I've lost count of the times I lied to the doc or to the chemist and said I lost em - they knew I hadn't, but they gave me them anyway.
The most I ever took at one time was 10 in one night, through the years I cut this down to 3. I got so fed up with all the lying I was doing to get my prescription so went to doc and told him all - he said he would prescribe 2 7.5's and a 3.75 at night - but I still take 3 7.5's
latley i've noticed I have been having terrible mood swings, I really want to stop - but i'm scared to - does that make sense?
It's a terrible drug, when I was first prescribed it I was told it was non-addictive and was a good alternative to benzo's
they don't even make me sleep anymore - it's 2.24am i've already taken 3 7.5's hours ago and i'm wide awake.
Does anyone have any advice, i'm so scared that i'm damaging my body - but I just can't stop.
They also increase my appetite, just after I take em I could eat and eat.... I put on loads of weight - but thankfully managed to control that.
And the biiter mettalic taste in my mouth - I kinda like it
any advice would be greatfully accepted
