I apologize about the imovane, i was thinking about the wrong country. imovane is zopicolone which we cannot have in the US. for some reason the FDA has not given approval because it is just like ambien (zolpidem), lunesta (eszopiclone), and sonata (zaleplon). sleep medications are a billion dollar buisness so it,s all about the brandname. zopicolone is potent in it's tranquilizing effects kind of like valium with a much shorter halflife. the combonation of medications you have been put on: fioranol, valium, and imovane after a while can "flare" your brain and nerves. smoothy drugs that get in your system at the level you need can get a hold of pain signals on a consistant basis. don't feel intimidated by your doctors, where else are you supposed to go? we have legitimate bad pain. good luck with the lyrica.
