    I was prescribed Zopiclone 7.5 mg for bedtime...somthing has to help me sleep, I'm lucky if I get 3 hours of sleep during the night.

    Is anyone on this med or has been on it? any side effects? is this a good medication..I know everyone has different reactions to all meds but I would like your story on this med. Thank You, Ann

    I never heard of that med. It is news to me. I hope someone will answer the post. I am kind of curious myself.

    I have been taking this med for years. It is also called Imovane and is a cousin of Lunesta.
    Right from the beginning, I found it helpful. It was originally prescibed by my Rheumatologist. I took 1/2 for a while but the sleep specialist said to take a whole one. Side effects are minimal, at least for me.
    Good luck with it,Ann.

    I have not heard of it..however, reading some of the side affects: confusion, memory impairment...OH MY...I'm not sure my Fogginess could handle any more help...LOL

    Please keep us posted. I would like to know how it works for you. I have a follow-up appt next week and was going to ask for some help with insomnia.

    Yeah I was/am really leary about the side effects too, my memory is just terrible I mean it's so bad that I forget my children's names, my phone number the street I live on...

    I don't think I can handle anymore forgetfulness, I really have to think long and hard about this before I even think about taking 1 pill.
