I've been taking a half pill of zopiclone (a drug in Canada similar to Ambien) once or twice a week for a few years now with no problems.

Yesterday I came across an article suggesting that non-benzo sedatives cause cancer at prescribed doses.

What do you all think of this? Perhaps I should just swith to a regular benzo, since I only use it once or twice a week.

What benzo is best for sleep onset (ie. short half life)? I didn't have any dependence issues taking zopiclone once or twice a week. Should this be the same with a benzo, what is your experience?

thanks
