What is Zopiclone?
Zopiclone tablets typically come in two strengths; 3.75 mg and 7.5 mg. However, they are also now available in 10 mg tablets at some online pharmacies. Of the different strengths available in the UK, zopiclone 7.5 mg is the strength that is most commonly used for treating bad bouts of chronic insomnia.
Like various other popular prescription sleeping tablets, zopiclone comes from a class of medication called nonbenzodiazepines. Nonbenzodiazepine sleep medicines are much newer than their benzodiazepine cousin and are also commonly referred to as Z drugs or Z hypnotics.
While benzodiazepines can produce a calming effect and help make patients feel sleepy, they can also be used to treat a host of other disorders. Nonbenzodiazepine medications on the other hand are generally only used for the treatment of insomnia and severe anxiety that is preventing patients from getting a good night’s sleep.
Studies show that this medication can cure insomnia and improve sleep patterns over a short time by providing undisturbed rest.
