Zopiclone drug information

Insomnia or poor sleep is a common disorder that has a transient course. If you have trouble sleeping, it means that you have trouble falling asleep, or that you wake up several times during the night, or that you wake up very early in the morning. Sleeping pills like zopiclone are usually used as a last resort but are sometimes used to treat some severe insomnia.

Zopiclone belongs to a class of drugs called Z drugs, which cause drowsiness by affecting brain messages. This drug shortens the time required to fall asleep and increases the duration of sleep.

Zopiclone works well in the short term but is not usually prescribed for more than 2-4 weeks because it will not work well after this time and long-term use will cause dependence.

 

Dosage and method of taking Zopiclone

Read the package leaflet carefully before starting treatment with Zopiclone. This brochure will help you to get comprehensive information about the drug and its possible side effects.

The dose and amount of medicine varies from person to person; Use the medicine exactly as your doctor advised. Your doctor may tell you to take one pill a night, or just take it 2-3 nights a week. Pay attention to your doctor's prescription for medication.

A 7.5 mg zopiclone tablet is usually given, but for people over 65, this dose is reduced to 3.75 mg.

Long-term use of zopiclone can be addictive.

Zopiclone should be taken at bedtime.

Contraindications to the use of the drug Zopiclone

Note the expiration date of Zopiclone and do not take it if your medicine has expired.

Never give zopiclone to another person, even if you have the same symptoms.

Check for zopiclone drug interactions, and if you are using a drug that interacts with this drug, talk to your doctor about using your medications.

 

Zopiclone use during pregnancy and lactation

During pregnancy and lactation, you should not use the drug arbitrarily without consulting your doctor. Medications can have devastating effects on the fetus or on yourself.

 

The effect of zopiclone on driving and working with machines

Zopiclone can make you drowsy and tired, so make sure you are alert before driving or operating machinery.

 

Zopiclone medicinal infusion

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter and herbal medicines) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

The specific medications listed below can increase the risk of side effects from zopiclone (such as slow breathing, severe drowsiness, and dizziness) if you take medications such as alcohol, sleeping pills, or anti-anxiety medications (such as diazepam). Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking zolpidem, antihistamines (such as cetirizine, diphenhydramine), muscle relaxants, and painkillers (such as codeine).

Zopiclone is very similar to S-zopiclone, do not use these two medicines together.

Check the labels on all your medicines (such as allergies or cough and cold medicines) because some of them are made up of substances that cause drowsiness. Ask your pharmacist how to use them so that you can use them safely.

 

Special warnings and precautions while taking Zopiclone

Some medications may not be prescribed under certain conditions, and some medications may be prescribed if additional treatment is needed; Therefore, it is best for your doctor to be aware of the following before taking zopiclone:

  • If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant or breast-feeding your baby.
  • If you have any liver or liver problems.
  • If you have any respiratory problems (such as COPD) or sleep apnea.
  • If you have mental health problems such as psychosis, depression, obsession, fear and personality disorder.
  • If you have a history of drug addiction.

  • If you are taking certain medications. These medicines include all the medicines available, whether you are prescribed them or taking them without a doctor's prescription, such as herbal medicines and complementary medicines.
  • If you have a history of an allergic reaction to another medicine.

 

Side effects of Zopiclone

All medications can cause side effects. But many consumers also do not experience any side effects. Some of the side effects go away shortly after taking the medicine. In case of persistent side effects, the physician should be informed:

Feeling drowsy and tired: In this case, avoid driving and working with machines.

Bitter or metal taste in the mouth: These side effects usually go away in the first few days of taking the medicine. But if any of these things bother you, talk to your doctor.
