I have recently become anxious and depressed and am currently struggling to feel better. I know eventually I probably will do but at the moment its real hard, especially as I feel quite alone with these feelings as I don't have a partner or family to support me. My doctor has prescribed Mirtazapine which I have taken before and which is helping. However my other problem is that I have been taking Zopiclone tablets for sleeping for some time now and have been getting a supply via the internet. My doctor knows about this now and is trying to support me to come off this. I have in the last few days reduced my dose to 50% of what I was on by cutting one tablet into quarters. This morning I feel very anxious again. I did not have a very good day yesterday at all and am even having feelings of paranoia mixed in as well. Its quite frightening how I'm feeling sometimes but hopefully I'll feel better as the day progresses. Am I doing the right thing by trying to come off the Zopiclone now or should I wait until the mirtazapine has reached full effect? I am determined not to increase my dose today of Zopiclone but it will be very hard. I don't know of any support groups for this. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
