What are your views on taking zopiclone as a sleep medication?

Answer

I consider them to be close to equivalent, but with the zolpidem being slightly more effective, and having less rebound insomnia when stopped. The Ambien/zolpidem is more readily available in the US with the zopiclone being more readily available in Canada. See the following study comparing the 2 medications.
