My GP says it is easy to get hooked on Zopiclone. Thats why he would only give me 14 of them. (14 x 7.5 mg)

Good luck with the zopiclone. If your GP is part of NHS, BNF 52 always notes that these drugs can only be taken up to 4 weeks (I believe, when I last read it.)

However, Lunesta in the US is approved for long term use, and contains what is essentially a patented generic drug. Zopiclone (Imovane) is a racemic mixture of two stereoisomers, only one of which is active (Lunesta).

This is all scientific folderal I know, for someone who just wants some sleep. I know the depths of insomnia myself. If I'm lucky I get 7 hours of sleep, even with Seroquel and 20mg of Ambien. I have no trouble falling asleep, its staying asleep. Sleep was better and almost psychedelic under Remeron, however the sheer weight gain was a showstopper.

To many zzs...
