welcome to the chat
are you still there
please type and say hello!
any other medical problems or medications?
well it would be weird to all of a sudden have side effects after 5 years
particularly since you are cutting back the dose
I am a little concerned that this may be something else
not related at all
Generally side effects continues for a week or so after cessation of a medication, sometimes up to 3 weeks
but based on your symptoms, I would suggest seeing your GP and getting a neurological examination and perhaps some blood work for the joint pain- full blood count, sedimentation rate for inflammation
If you are really unsteady, they may want to do a MRI of the brain
it sounds like you may have vertigo and tinnitus.
This is an inflammation of your 8th cranial nerve which does hearing and balance
there are better medications for this like meclizine
the zopiclone will help a lttle
but you should see your doctor since this is your first time
It is not the medication
it is called vertifo
there is a great link
no that is a link about vertigo
Here is a link about zopiclone
It is very complex- I sent you the link to look at
usually inflammation of the 8th cranial nerve
very rarely stroke
can you check out the links?
did I provide you with excellent service?
well, read the links, keep me posted
will check in with you in about a week ok
