Dosages and Strength
Zopiclone comes in both pill and liquid form. It comes in two doses: 3.75 mg and 7.5 mg. The standard amount is zopisign 7.5 mg, which should be taken right before bed. It can take up to an hour for this to start to work. People who are over 65 and have trouble with their kidneys or liver may be given the smaller amount of 3.75 mg. In these situations, taking a smaller amount will help reduce the chance of getting too sleepy or having other bad effects.
If you forget to take your dose of zopiclone before bed, just skip the dose and take your next dose at the usual time the next night. Don't ever take two doses at once.
