Evil Sleeping Pills

So I have "severe" insomnia for around a month now and finally I have been prescribed zopiclone, a heavy tranquilizing sleeping tablet just yesterday.

However, after reading about it on wiki and on numerous threads, it appears to basically be a prescribed way to kill yourself through hypnosis addiction.

Now I'm not a drug addict but I'm hardly completely clean but the info I read has basically scared the shit out of me.

Here's the link, watch'all think? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zopiclone

Oh and my mouth tastes like a copper coin...

Insomnia is fake. Just cut back on the sugars and cafeine.

I'd trust your doctor's opinion more than some stuff you read on wikipedia and "threads."

Any sleeping pill will have those kind of effects. I was really dizzy when I decided to stop taking mine. The insomnia came back really bad but it was because of withdrawls. So it helps you at first, but you WILL be dependent on it.

I have insomnia too, I've been on a lot of different sleeping pills and none have worked. Pain medicine works the best, at least for me.

His doctor's opinion negates empirical data?

His doctor's in a better position to analyze and draw appropriate conclusions from that data. Otherwise why go to a doctor at all.

Zopiclone is pretty intense stuff. I've used it to quell bouts of insomnia before, my dad gives some to me sometimes to help me out, we're both kind of in the same situation as far as sleep troubles.

****ed up dreams. Long ass sleep cycles. Shitty drugged feeling when you wake up.

I've never taken it regularly though, mainly to avoid symptoms that TS is talking about. Pretty much every sleep medication will have the same symptoms, shit like suicidal thoughts, depression, trouble determining if you're asleep or not, the list goes on...

Smoke some pot 2 hours before going to sleep. Better than sleeping pills that just knock you out.

I was prescribed it as well.

Honestly, after the first few pills, I didn't really feel anything anymore so I said fuck it
