Well last night about 8.00 pm I could not stand the anxiety any more and so I took 12.5 mg of Seroquel. That seemed to do the trick. I had horrible visions of me getting a stuffy nose with my Zopiclone and having panic attacks because I thought I couldn't breathe. My anxiety centres around my breathing - I have no problem with my breathing, I am perfectly healthy in that respect - I just have a phobia of suffocating.

I took the two Zopiclone about 9.30 pm and I was asleep by 10.30. I woke up at 3.30 am and lay awake until 7.00. Zopiclone seems to be quite a clean drug. I experienced none of the anxiety I had with the Seroquel. No bitter metallic taste in the mouth. Lying awake from 3.30 to 7.00 I felt wrapped in a warm and pleasant drowsiness. Now that I am up I feel quite refreshed, just a slight sedating hangover.

Tonight if the Seroquel anxiety leaves me alone I will try two Zopiclone on their own (with my normal 900 mg of Lithium). Does anyone think it is possible that the Seroquel, even at 12.5 mg, is overwriting its signature on the Zopiclone and making me wake up at 3.00? Or is it more likely that I am so used to waking at 3.00 my body does not know any different? Does anyone think there will be an improvement, ie sleep beyond 4.00 am, if I don't take the Seroquel? I am hoping to come off the Seroquel and to stay off it.
