  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 3.75 mg M,W,F
Advice & Tips: I have been advised, by my GP, not to take more than 3 doses of Zoplicone in any given week.. Reason given, was that to take a dose every day would diminish the effectiveness of the drug... Not sure whether to believe this or not, will discuss this further with my GP on my next visit..
