    I have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar, in January. I am 22 and currently doing my access course at college along with three jobs to pay the rent.

    I am currently taking sertraline for the anxiety - 150mg
    Fluoxitine - 50mg
    CBD Oil - 4 times a day

    I have just been prescribed Zopiclone too, tonight was my first night taking it as you can see, terrible insomnia! I have been started on 3.75mg but it doesnt seem to have worked, I only got given a 7 days supply. Should I take another now or leave it and just get on with what I normally do?

    Any advice would be brilliant!


    Although cant give medical advice and you should see your doc..whatever you do don't double dose. You risk overdose even on a small dosage or the drug interactions may become more problematic. If they aren't touching the insomnia (insomnia is a side effect of most sleeping tablets..irony) then go to doc and see if adjustments can be made
