Hi,

Zopiclone is very similar to eszopiclone (Lunesta). Search for the p-babble Lunesta posts for more info. The main difference is dose, zopiclone is given at 3.75mg or 7.5mg, usually 7.5mg for young adults.

>Especially the possible interaction with treatment of epilespy. I do not have epilepsy but I am taking lamictal so I was wondering if this would be an issue?

Zopiclone does not interact with Lamictal.

>And there also may be a possibility that it may cause some depression, would this be likely to happen if I am taking it for no longer than a week?

It's possible but unlikely. Getting a good night's sleep will probably make you feel better.

>I only want to take this to get over this acute stage of the insomnia.

Don't forget that zopiclone itself has withdrawal symptoms. Perhaps you could taper mirtazapine more gradually.
