This doc was on the verge of screwing up my life. In Aug of 2010 I had shiver symptoms but my vitals and blood check were fine. Misdiagnosed as panic attack and since I complained about a few days of difficulty with sleeping. Dr.Joe handed me over Zolipedum 10mg and said "have this and see me in a month". The first week was good..but then I noticed I got hooked on this drug to get sleep! Anyhow, followed docs advice and took it for a month. After the first two weeks, the drug gave me blurred vision and depression set in. So after a month my wife and I go and see him and ask him "How do I get out of this?" . He laughed and said " I don't think it is possible now"!!!! And there was this nurse who said she had been having this drug for 18 years(a big lie!) and to follow docs orders...To make a long story short, I took 60+ tablets of this ...and was totally dependent on this for sleeping(some days worked..some days did not). Luckily in Dec 2010 I took a vacation and stopped it altogether on my own and now I am off it and sleep good. If I had stayed on without a vacation I would have been dead by now...because in Nov l2010's ast week, the medicine stopped working on me..so had to increase dosage on my own accord to 15mg to have some sleep.

The fact is this guy who calls himself a doc prescribed zolipedum without proper diagnosis of my condition. People, if you have difficulty sleeping for a few days...never ever take this tablet. Try other methods..For me yoga, fatty foods (made with coconut oil and ghee) and application of coconut oil on head before bath (try Ayurvedic oil named NeeliBringadhi oil) and massage of back and neck before sleep worked... I am trying to forget those 4 horrible months I was under this guy's treatment. As soon as I escaped from Zolipedum, my life got better.

The funny way the insurance works also made me think if this doc gets a commission for prescribing this pill. Two times in 90 days the insurance didnt charge me >$2. But on the third refill they wanted $50. So in the end if I had not gotten off this drug, I would have been without a job and addicted to a horrible drug! It proves the fact that some of the worst drug dealers in the US are sometimes legal doctors. I am angry and bitter...For many years I was afraid to go to doctors because of the fact that they would "get" me on something based on some misdiagnosis...In this case it proved right. Now I am more afraid of going to any doctor. My anger just overflows in this case - an irresponsible doc almost did me in!
