Medication Question - weaning off frequent zopiclone
The past month I've been taking 3.75mg zopiclone every other day, and herbal nytol the days inbetween.
Therapy has started back now, so the need for such intense sedation is not there as much. [I'm also on 30mg mirtazapine, every day].
I do see my GP on Friday, but was wondering if anyone knew of a good weaning off schedule.
I actually took zopiclone last night and the night before, too.
Should I do it gradually, like one every 3 days, then 4, and so forth? Or just stop 'cold turkey'?
I've had a bad experience of a severe panic attack possibly connected with zopiclone withdrawal, nearly 2 years ago. So I really really want to avoid that!
Normally, I only use zopiclone not much more than once or twice a week or less, except when I'm in crisis and need to take it more frequently.
