Zopiclone is a type of medication primarily prescribed to help manage short term sleep problems. It is a fast acting sleeping tablet which helps with difficulties such as problems falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too soon.

How does Zopiclone work?

The medication works by altering the GABA receptors in the brain. GABA has a sedative effect and if therefore responsible for tiredness, and can be found naturally in the brain. When Zopiclone increases the sedative effect of GABA, it makes sleeping easier for you. It is generally prescribed for people who have short term sleeping problems, and can be used for up to four weeks. Use for longer than four weeks can lead to dependency.

What are the benefits of Zopiclone?

If you are having trouble sleeping, this can affect your day to day life in a manner of ways. Not only is being unable to sleep frustrating in itself, but it can also impact on your days. It can affect your mood, impair your concentration, and make mentally exhausting tasks more difficult. By helping you to get solid sleep quickly, Zopiclone can help manage these problems and make life easier for you.

How to take Zopiclone.

Tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water just before sleep. Always follow your doctor’s advice on dosage, and only use the following information as a guide. For adults, the recommended dose is one 7mg tablet just before bedtime. For the elderly, or patients with liver or kidney problems, the recommended dose is one 3.75mg tablet just before sleep.

Is Zopiclone right for me?

Zopiclone may not be suitable for you dependent on your medical history and if any other medication you are taking will impact the effects of the treatment. You will not be prescribed Zopiclone if you are allergic to it or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet. You may not be prescribed it if you suffer from myasthenia gravis, respiratory failure, or if you have sleep apnoea or severe liver or kidney problems. When filling out the medical questionnaire, make sure you mention if you have a personality disorder, have a history of alcoholism or drug abuse, or are over 65 years old.

What are the side effects of Zopiclone?

Any form of medication can have side effects, although many people don’t experience any. Always read the patient information leaflet and familiarise yourself with the side effects before use. Common side effects of Zopiclone include metallic or bitter taste in the mouth, dry mouth and sleepiness. Sleeping tablets can be addictive and your doctor will usually work out a dosage for you that means you ease off them at the end of your treatment. If you do not follow this you may experience withdrawal symptoms. If you experience headaches, muscle pain, sweating, stomach problems, relaxed grip on reality, nightmares, hallucinations, feeling anxious, increased sensitivity to light or faster or uneven heartbeat after finishing the treatment, consult your GP.
