Sucking on a Penny until the Next Day

Citation:   SWisM. "Sucking on a Penny until the Next Day: An Experience with Zopiclone (exp105517)". Apr 6, 2021.

7.5 - 15 mg oral Pharms - Zopiclone (pill / tablet)
    smoked Tobacco - Cigarettes  


Used on-and-off to help with my natural nighttime awakeness.

After fifteen or twenty minutes, a metallic taste coats my tongue. Other than coffee, everything else I swallow has the same copper-type taste, even strong fruit juice or food. Seem to smoke more cigarettes while waiting for it to kick in and the drowsiness to start.

Tried 7.5mg - 15mg before (1-2 tablets) and it always works making me drowsy within an hour or so, and knocking me to sleep within twenty minutes of getting into bed. Can sleep interrupted for about eight hours, but the metallic taste is still there mildly for the rest of the next day.

Not experienced any euphoria, visual or auditory effects, and - if anything - find I dream less, or at least can't remember them.
