Customer Question
Hi I've taken...

Hi I've taken 3.5 me zopiclone tablets most nights for about 3 weeks and am concerned about side effects including abdominal pain

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

I've had frequent mild pains all around abdomen and stomach for nearly a week now although I've not taken zopiclone every night in the last few

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

I wasn't prescribed them in the first place. My wife was recently diagnosed with serious illness and prescribed zopiclone to help her sleep. I took them as well

Greetings

  • Zopiclone can cause stomach cramps when taken, but these cramps resolve 1-2 days after discontinuation of the drug. If you have not been taking much of it in the past few days, it is unlikely that it is responsible. The only way to find out is to stop taking it permanently and see if the cramps resolve. If they persist, then you will need to be checked out by your doctor for other causes.
  • We do not recommend taking any medications for any indications without checking with your doctor first. These meds might not be suitable for you. If you still need help for insomnia, check with your doctor about alternatives that are more suitable for you

Thanks , I didn't have a tablet on Saturday night, had 7.5 mgs on Sunday night then stopped again last night,but was taking them pretty much constantly for approximately 2 and a half weeks prior to that, . I also started eating a lot more fibre 2 months ago (maybe too much!) I also reduced my dairy intake but have since increased with that.and I have had a little alcohol on a few nights which I hardly ever did before. Maybe my diet/liver has had too much change too quickly. ?

It certainly can be just a coincidence, totally unrelated. You are doing the right thing, with high fiber and diet. Hopefully, it resolves soon. Best wishes
