Hi Ed .....Just a comment on zopiclone ..... I have been taking zopiclone for over 5 years now. Whether my GP or psychiatrist prescribe it, they write the script for 60 a month. I have to take two now to get some sleep. I actually hate the drug. I get that metallic taste which never seems to leave me. I have tried many times to stop taking it, but all of the other sleep meds my psych has put me on have not worked. Because my insomnia is so bad, I always end up going back on the zopiclone. I also find that when I try to get it out of my system my depression gets worse. I was told that zopiclone is not addictive, but I think I have become dependent on it. When I take the two pills, it takes about a half-hour to go to sleep. During that time I always find that I get some relief from the depression. I almost wish I wasn't going to sleep because I feel so much better. Sounds weird I guess.

I have also tried seroquel, trazadone .... a number of different meds. I have not taken ambien or lunesta. I see the commercials on TV, but I have not asked my doctor about them to see if they are available in Canada. Maybe I should try.
