Question: is it so bad that iam addicted to zopiclone


 Duke - Thu Oct 13, 2005 4:52 pm

ive had alot of problems recently with depresson and phycosis caused by this (unwanted thoughts and so on..) and ahwile ago spent some time in the pychiatric ward of my hospital because of it.
while i was there to help me sleep they gave me zopiclone (imovane) the first time i took it i experienced a massive sense of euphorea, and have been taking it on and off ever since for that exact reason (rather then just to sleep). aswell as the sense of euphoria it also calms me down and alows me to be able to process all my thoughts, i also do not get anymore of the unwanted thoughts.
ive been off it for over a week know and ive notice a spiral in my "life" i cant relax iam getting the unwanted thoughts back again and iam expereincing nightmeres again.
so really of zopiclone stops all this is it such a bad thing to want it so badly?

Duke-
You state that Zopiclone helps with other symptoms you have. I recommend you speak with your physician about this. He/She may be willing to prescribe this for you to take daily, provided you take it correctly and don't abuse it. It may also offer some insight into your current condition.
Thanks!
