I have suffered from depression for years and was not able to sleep. I was given zopiclone to take. It helped me a little to sleep. However one night I was getting ready for bed and I had taken my 7.5 zopiclone tablet, I then remembered I still had something else to do before I went to bed. I did what I had to do but to my amazement I felt happy and free of my depression. I couldn't work it out.
The following day I decided to take my zopiclone a bit earlier to see what happened. Again my depression lifted and I got more work done in one evening than I had in months.
I was honest and told my GP about how much better I felt whilst taking Zopiclone. She wasn't happy and insisted I be weaned off them. I cried and cried as I knew from then on I was going to be frozen within my depression and I am. I asked my GP why isn't there an anti depressant that could do the same thing. I have tried many and none of them have worked. I am sometimes tempted to try to get Zopiclone some other way so I could have another day of peace and not pain.
