Otherwise, you may experience restlessness, mood changes, anxiety, the condition that you were treated for with these tablets can reoccur worse than before.
It is critical to talk to your doctor and inform him or her of any changes or anything unusual so that a proper treatment can be applied to your own unique needs. Staying healthy is the number one priority that patients are concerned about. However, the expertise of a doctor is required as every person has a distinctive body.

Operating machines, driving vehicles or bikes, and using tools

Do not perform such tasks unless you know how Zopiclone affects your mental abilities.
