I have stopped taking zopiclone for 5 nights now and i was wondering if diphenhydramine would be a safe temporary alternative to get through the hardest part until my sleep gets back to normal. Thank you
Yes, it is viable alternative, it does work for insomnia, of course everyone reacts differently to medications. Having said that I am not a Dr., I believe you should seek medical advise and have a professional be responsible for your treatment until you are back on track. This is the most responsible thing to do, never self medicate.
