Zopiclone (Imovane)

Zopiclone is the generic name for the brand name drug Imovane and is prescribed to treat difficulties in falling asleep. Zopiclone may cause a distinct type of memory loss or better known as amnesia. If this happens, the patient will not remember anything that has happened to him/her within few hours or after taking Zopiclone until such time that the effectiveness of the pill wears off. This is not an issue, because most of the patients fall asleep after taking Zopiclone. In a lot of cases, memory loss is still controllable and may be prevented by taking Zopiclone only when you know you can sleep fully at night time before you work again or do your usual chores. You have to discuss this matter to your doctor to prevent problems from rising along the way.

If you will use Zopiclone, you need to weigh the risk over the benefits first, but your doctor will help you in doing this.

Proper usage of Zopiclone

When you take Zopiclone as prescribed by your doctor, it must not be taken more than the required doses. You should only take it according to the prescription and you must not go beyond that. It may be addicting to go take more than the required dose of the doctor; this may lead to physical and mental dependence at the same time. Zopiclone must not be taken if your schedule will not allow you to sleep fully at night time.

If you need to be awake before you complete 7 hours of sleep, you will just feel drowsy and you may suffer from memory issues, due to the effect of the Zopiclone. It must wear off first and that will only happen after 8 hours.
