    I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years now and he is addicted to zopiclone which is a sleeping pill. He takes up to 5 pills to go to sleep each and every single night 365 days. Some days I find him passed out on the couch at 11 am and calling in sick to work. He also suffers from depression and his doctor will not take him off these pills due to the side effects which can occur.. I just don't know what to do. As a wife I want to protect him and make sure he's happy but this drug is wrecking our marriage.

    I am so sorry and can relate to what your going through. Have you tried talking to a therapist? The one on here has given me wonderful guidance on how to handle and work through my husbands addiction. Also are you able to go with him to the Drs? Maybe if the Dr knows hes abusing his medication he will stop prescribing these meds to him
