Zipiclone instead of Tamazepam

Postby lurcher » Thu Jan 16, 2014 6:09 pm

Doeas anyone take Zipiclone? I have been on Tamazepam for over 20 years but got letter from practice to say that Temazepam is in short supply and very very expensive they have put me on Zipiclone. Only starting them tonight , have had look on web and see that they should only be prescribed for some weeks. Other change is that I got 10 Temazapam at a time now given 28 Zipiclone. Many thanks :crazy:

I have a friend who suffered the loss of a baby. After months of not sleeping her doctor gave her these. She said they were a god send. The only thing is she could never remember going to bed so maybe make sure you're in a safe environment.

Hi there, I tried diazapam and tamazapam but neither helped me sleep. My GP suggested zopiclone and they really work. They also don't leave me feeling as spaced out the next day. Whatever works best I say and everyone is different. I find the zopiclone gets me back into a routine and I only need to take them about once a week. Good luck :)

I used to be on Zopiclone when I had postnatal depression, they're fantastic, but always left a funny taste in my mouth x
