zopiclone (sleep)

Posted by lushkins on July 30, 2005, at 10:03:52


I have been withdrawing from remeron and have been having really bad insomnia, hopefully it is just rebound insomnia and not a the start of a slippery slope downhill. While the depression hasn't really returned the insomnia is really bad. This has happened every time after I had titrated the remeron down a little, the insomnia eventually cleared up after 3 weeks to a managable level where I would get 6 hrs sleep most nights with each new dose. But I have not really slept at all in 5 days so am I desperate to, it is as if I have forgotten how to sleep. So I have been prescribed this but I am worried about the side effects which may occur.

Especially the possible interaction with treatment of epilespy. I do not have epilepsy but I am taking lamictal so I was wondering if this would be an issue? As the panflet states this.

And there also may be a possibility that it may cause some depression, would this be likely to happen if I am taking it for no longer than a week?

Has anyone else taken this drug who was on the depressed side of things and had a worsening of the depression?

I only want to take this to get over this acute stage of the insomnia. After a while the remeron or zispen was not doing much to keep me asleep like at the start and was alo causing be to be angry and agitated. So hopefully it will clear up, but does anyone have any expereince with this drug?

Many thanks
