Zopiclone is a type of sedative-hypnotic medication that is prescribed to treat insomnia. Like other medications in its class, it has the potential for abuse and addiction. Zopiclone can be habit-forming, especially if taken in larger doses or for longer than prescribed.
If someone takes zopiclone regularly for a prolonged period of time, they may develop a tolerance to the drug, which means they need higher doses to achieve the same effect. This can increase the risk of dependence and addiction. Withdrawal symptoms may occur if the drug is suddenly stopped, which can include anxiety, restlessness, tremors, sweating, and difficulty sleeping.
It is important to use zopiclone only as directed by a healthcare provider and to avoid using it for longer than prescribed. If you have concerns about addiction to zopiclone or any other medication, talk to your healthcare provider.
