What is Zopiclone?

Zopiclone is an orally administered sleeping tablet that helps treat insomnia in patients. Insomnia is a sleeping disorder that disrupts restful sleep and wakefulness cycles in people of all ages. People who suffer from insomnia can have two distinct types – acute and chronic insomnia. Acute insomnia is a temporary condition that occurs due to lifestyle changes like work stress, disruptive sleep due to a new pillow, depressing news, change in food habits, excessive exhaustion and workout schedules, and so on.

Chronic insomnia is a prolonged form of insomnia. It is caused by working night shifts, unhealthy sleep cycles, psychological disorders, long-term medical conditions, prolonged pain, excessive stress, and so on. Zopiclone works on the acute type of insomnia.


What is Zopiclone used for?

Zopiclone is used to treat acute insomnia in patients. It is prescribed to people as a last resort after trying other forms of treatment like meditation, working out, lifestyle changes, food changes/ dietary changes, and smoking and alcohol cessation. Zopiclone is not used to treat excessively long terms of insomnia and usually helps patients sleep restfully throughout the night within the first one or two weeks of the drug. The maximum time that Zopiclone should be used is 4 weeks.

Zopiclone is to be stopped after 4 weeks since the body will develop resistance to the drug and the effectiveness will wear off causing a recurrence of insomnia. It should also be discontinued as patients become dependent on the drug to fall asleep and cannot get rest without the tablet. Zopiclone should not be used as a recreational drug and should only be consumed after consulting the doctor. Once the insomnia condition has been verified by a doctor, you can take Zopiclone according to the doctor’s instructions or the packet/ leaflet instruction.
