If you have insomnia, chances are you’ve heard of Zopiclone(Zimovane & Imovane). This drug has been around for over 20 years and is supposed to be safe, but it’s important to know how and when to take it for the best results in order to avoid the potential risks associated with it. We’re going to talk about those risks now and then tell you when exactly you should take the drug in order not to get them.
The first thing that medical experts recommend doing before taking this medication is checking that you don’t have any pre-existing health conditions or any other medication prescriptions. The drug is known to interact with medicines that are used to treat high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, or even other sleeping pills. So check with your doctor before you start taking the drug.
How to take it
First, you need to understand that to get the best results from this drug, you must follow your doctor’s recommendations. If you have mild insomnia, your doctor might prescribe a dose of 3.5 mg or 7.5 mg at bedtime. If your doctor recommends a higher dose, don’t panic, and don’t assume it’s better to take a higher dose.
What is the Recommended Dosage?
The recommended dose is 7.5 mg, taken once a day as soon as it’s time for bed. You can start with a lower dose of 3.5 mg if you’re a first-time user, and it helps you adjust your body clock. Starting with a low dose obviously means that you don’t need to worry about overusing the drug.
You should make sure that you take the pill at around the same time every day to get used to your internal sleep patterns. Taking the pill with food is also advised, especially if you take it in the evening.
How long to it take for
There is no set time to take the drug, but doctors usually recommend that you take it for at least two to four weeks. After this period, you can ask your doctor about extending the time you take it for.
Your body gets used to the drug; you might not need to take it every day anymore after a while. That is why your doctor will tell you how long you can take it before telling you to stop.
When you stop taking Zopiclone, it should be done slowly over time. One way to do this is by tapering down the dosage as you begin to sleep better. Another way is to make sure that you have ample time between doses so that your body has a chance to adjust to not having the drug in its system any longer. You should never try to quit using this medication cold turkey because it can cause severe withdrawal symptoms that can be dangerous if they’re not handled properly.
Zopiclone is a good drug if you’re an adult who struggles with insomnia. It can help you to sleep better and relieve the symptoms of insomnia. If you follow all the recommended steps, you should have no problem taking this medication without any side effects. Just make sure you do and don’t ignore your doctor’s advice.
