Thanks for your reply Michelle. My sleep issue is such a mess at this point. The Zopiclone had been working great then all of a sudden it just stopped working. I put a call in to my doctor but she hasn’t phone back yet. My assumption is that because of my past sedative abuse (or just the way my brain is wired) I developed a very quick tolerance (after only 8 pills). So I took a second pill when I realized the regular dose was not going to work, then I decide “bad move” and better just stop (threw away the rest of my pills to make sure I wouldn’t cave), but two nights without it and my anxiety was panic level. So I caved, had to go beg the pharmacist for one pill to cut the anxiety while I wait for the doctor to call me back, so now I am on record with the pharmacy as “not being able to control the dose”.
My doctor is great though. She is recognizing that she needs a consult. She is asking for a sleep study and said she would also ask for a consult with the ADHD specialist who diagnosed me 10 years ago. But I live in Quebec and the wait lists can be long. It depends though on what priority they assign.
