Yes...You will have WD after you stop just maybe not as severe as valium. Are you tapering it? That is very important with benzos!
If these two drugs are cross tollerant will your physical addiction just swap over and you'll go into withdrawl once you stop taking the zopiclone, even though zopiclone is not a benzo? planning to be on it 10 days max
sorry for the mistake
i'm not really fully addicted the last time i took a break from valium the 4th and 5th night since my last dose i didn't sleep great and slight rebound anxiety. thanks for your help
should add that i had been off valium for two weeks and am now back taking them 5 days. I'm not taking about abusing the zopiclone just one 7.5mg in the morning and at night as i still have bad panic disorder
no more comments i'll only take them for those two days thanks for your help but dont want to get it into my head
lol i've gotten it into my head :( any other opinions?
It's not a benzo but it IS a sleep med...
If its helping you when you're off the Valium and you only plan on taking it for two days, I don't see a huge problem there.
Just one thing though: part of addiction is constantly taking a pill for every thing we feel that is unpleasant....Unpleasant things will happen to us and we need to learn how to cope with those things/feelings without a pill. It's much healthier...
Think about it and good luck!
i understand what you mean, i know all about swapping addictions unfortunately. thanks for your help i was just concerned that since they act on the same receptors it would be like taking a benzo but that doesn't seem to be the case
I am taking zopliclone to come of Valium. The withdrawals from, benzos were way too much for me. I have a limited amount of zopliclone, I don't expect the withdrawals to be as bad as seven years of benzos. The doctor thought it was a good option but I'd love any feedback.
