Xanax is alprazalam, I don't think I spelled it right though. They don't really recommend taking the ambien everyday, but I have been for years. It works well for me. The xanax, I am cutting back on because I am getting older. I use to take four milligram a day. I cut down to 1 1/2 a day, now I am at 1/2 mg a day. But I find myself a tad bit irritable. Not even noticable, but I can feel it. I kind of flew off of the handle the other day when I had to take my dog to the groomer. It is a chore taking her, she gets way too excited. But my husband put the back seat down (as to sit on) and she couldn't jump up there. I kind of yelled at him for it. He thought it would be easier and was trying to do me a favor. I don't think I would of got upset taking that extra quarter of a milligram of the xanax as I did without it. It does keep me from getting anxious.
I do good with the ambien, but that is when I take my last dose of xanax, so that helps me too. Though if I am feeling irritable, I take it earlier than bedtime. I have been taking it for about 20 years. I never got a tolerance to it. I only take it when needed. I got perscribed three a day but usually take two. I know some people abuse it but I have no reason to. I guess. It just keeps me from getting anxious or nervous.
I hope that you find what works for you. I have never taken zopiclone. I will have to look it up and read about it. There are some things with ambien though, like not having a full stomache when you take it. So that means no eating before bed. But that is good practice anyway I guess.
Take care, let me know how things go.
