Zopiclone is used for the control, treatment and prevention of insomnia, and certain other mental health problems. When used for treating insomnia, it works by slowing down brain activity, thus increasing the length of the sleeping time.
Do not use Zopiclone if you are allergic to any of the ingredients present in it, or if you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Before using Zopiclone tell your doctor if you are using any prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, or other herbal and dietary pills and supplements, if you have recently had any surgeries, or have any upcoming surgeries scheduled, or if you have a history of kidney or liver disease. Also let your doctor know your history of medical problems, pre-existing diseases and current health conditions.
Zopiclone is available as a tablet to be taken orally, with or without food, as instructed by the doctor. Dosage depends on conditions such as medical condition, diet, age, and counteraction with other medicines.
Zopiclone has side effects such as sleepiness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and altered taste sensation. Generally, these side effects should go away on their own after a limited period of time. In case the side effects fail to go away, you need to consult your doctor immediately. If you experience side effects other than the ones listed above, you need to contact your doctor for immediate medical assistance.
