    Hello all sorry I am in need of advice again I have managed to get the memory clinic consultant to prescribe something to help dad to sleep he's prescribed Zimovane dad had his first one last night and slept for four hours which is good but was hoping that he would of slept for longer to get to the point I was wondering if this medication works instantly or does it take a few days for it to be most effective
    Many thanks exhausted 2015 xx

    My mum now back on 3.75mg Zopiclone only when needed. Like you, I noticed that it would work well to help her to sleep, but rarely get more than 5 hrs. So what I do now is give it to her at a later time. She goes to bed anytime between 10 and 11pm and then usually up an hour later to use the toilet and this is when she takes it if needed. it works ok for us because I am not usually in bed before midnight.

    My mum has been on Zoplclone/Zimovane for ages ( 3.5 - 7mg ) as she has always been a poor sleeper. She takes it at midnight and it gives her 4-5 hours. It doesn't seem to work for longer no matter the dosage. That's my experience too when, out of desperation, I have tried it to get a good 8 hours.....
