on 10mg of Zolpidem. I am wary about the change because the zopiclone works. Can anybody please tell me if they think Zolpidem is a good alternative. I would appreciate any feedback as I'm a bit worried about the swap over. Thanks
FLINT16; from what I have been reading in several places the one you were on is an International drug and is quite similar to what the ZOLPIDEM 5 OR 10MG remember you can't judge the milligram's because they are 2 different medications. But both work and are very effective. But I do want to warn you as you know you should not mix alcohol with either one of these medications. And also because you have been on the Zopiclone for 7 years. Sometimes it may take a day or two to get the best benefit out of the new one. Zolpidem. Myself I would not worry at all. This is one of the most effective sleep meds. in the U.SA. AND I BELIEVE IN Canada. You should have no problems at all and don't worry that we'll just make it harder to see how it works if you get all wound up. And if worse comes to worse you could go back to your doctor and let him or her know that the new one does not work as well as the one you have been taking for so many years. But I hope I'm right and you should even get better sleep. I hope this helps you some and you are able to relax and get some good sleep.
all my best to you. Please give it a try. And remember what I said about getting to wound up that the pill does not work at the full benefit that it should. rest in peace.
