    I have been taking zopiclone for pain relief for 5+ years. It was an uphill battle convincing Drs that it works, finally found a Pain Management specialist who was aware of pain effect.

    I usually break one 7.5 mg tablet and use it sublingual. (the bitter taste becomes unnoticeable in short time) Pain relief less than 5 min. Take 15mg daily - every 4-6 hrs.
    Have severe osteoporosis, spinal fusion L4,L5, S1 and compression fractures T8,L2, AND L3. 100mcg fentanyl daily and zopiclone keeps pain under control. *no drowsiness.

    Are you like me and have pain that is causing autonomic dysreflexia and the doctors don't believe that if you control the pain it will stop my autonomic dysrefexia symptoms? Also are you walking and the pain and spasms and autonomic dysreflexia making it difficult to keep walking? Have you had this for a long time and since the pain isn't being treated, you are having low potassium? I would welcome all reponses?

  • If we stay strong & continue to share our stories ...

    If we stay strong & continue to share our stories we the people, will prove together these drugs we've been trusting for 20 years, are killing us slowly & we are suffering in the pain they cause. Drugs should be used to correct the problem in a healing manner, not long term to cause side effects. Go back to the beginning of when it all started & remember the details. Bet the stomach trouble & stomach pain is due to RX drugs perscribed for other conditions. We were strong hard working people whose lives have been stollen from us while taking RX meds. Stay strong & keep sharing!

  • Dear contributors:

    Dear contributors:

    I hope everyone reading this information accepts this information constructively.

    Most of us by now have heard of the masked magician Val Valentino who gave away the secrets of the most amazing magic tricks.

    In every industry, including the modern and alternative health industry, there are serious things that most people never hear about. Some of these things will improve or destroy your health. There are actual drugs and vitamins that can cause disease. Every week I will be revealing many of the problems in these industries.

    I was one of the fortunate people born into modern and alternative medicine over 55 years ago, which gave me a much better understanding about medication and when not to take them. I also learned why some supplement cause more harm than help. The supplement industry regulates itself and so many people believe the drug industry is regulated by the FDA. The FDA does not test drugs before they license them. The FDA does not approve drugs. They only review the controlled research that is presented to them by the manufactures that will do whatever it takes to get their drug to the market.

    All information supplied on is not always from a trained authority in modern or alternative medicine. Response from others is not always in your best interest and the information given is often incomplete or entirely wrong. Every year over 400,000 people die after taking a prescribed medication from their doctor. It is your choice whether to take a prescription or not.

    Deciding to take medication requires two thoughts:

    1) Can I accept the severe permanent side-effects that WILL show up during long-term use of the drug?

    2) With a chronic disease, can I accept being on this drug for my entire life?

    Originally, drugs were designed for short term use only. During the last 40 years, drugs are now being prescribed for long-term use. If the drug works for your symptoms, prepare yourself for the side effects. Different drugs affect different systems in the body.

    Example 1: Statin drugs deplete CoQ10. This Coenzyme is beneficial for heart health in many ways. It assists in maintaining the normal oxidative state of LDL cholesterol, helps assure circulatory health, and supports optimal functioning of the heart muscle. There are very serious health problem seen in people who have depleted their CoQ10 using statins. Statin drugs also destroy liver function.

    Example 2: Antibiotics are taken by millions every day. Many of them will end up with intestinal diseases if they don’t replace the beneficial bacteria in their gut that the antibiotic killed off.

    These are just a few examples of hundreds of others that can protect you from the dangers of long term drug use.

    More than one third of the US refuses to take medication no matter what diagnoses they receive from their doctor. These people find alternative ways to reverse their diagnosis. The include diet and lifestyle changes along with supplementation. The doctors that use these methods are called integrative doctors. The have their medical degree and have studied many years of alternative medicine. This type of medicine is used in all countries around the world that exceed the quality of health in the US. The US is number 38 in health quality and France is number one. Integrated medicine is the medicine of the future.

    Many Americans chose to take a drug so they can continue down that destructive trail that brought on their disease. There are no shortcuts in life when it comes to the quality of health and life that most of us desire. Once we chose to go down the trail of medication, our families will suffer seeing their love ones deteriorate right before their eyes. If medication is your choice; I would suggest protecting your liver and kidneys.
