Couldn't find group for this so hopefully others also have these symptoms. Mine started mildly fearing may have hit someone driving. Stupidly tried SSRI's which made things much worse morphed into more OCD type symptoms with compulsions. Been 2 years off zopiclone haven't really eased much at all, just feel like I no longer have any control over my brain. Think it's caused by anxiety rather than true OCD, as did several sessions of CBT and exposure therapy didn't help at all. [...] had this before being made to CT zopiclone. I took it for insomnia no pre existing anxiety.

Hopefully I'm not only one experiencing  this as feels quite lonely at times. I've had waves but no windows so far. Wondering if taking more than 1 med increases the duration and severity of symptoms, as only been really bad last 15 months since I tried the anti depressants?

Yes I have bad mental symptoms.
Intrusive thoughts about what a loser I am and I was better on the drugs and I'm not okay without them. Intrusive thoughts that no matter what I do I'm going to die anyways. The same thing all day every day.

Can't distract. Can't watch a movie or read a book without my own messed up thoughts getting in the way. A voice that mocks me and tells me horrible things.

Glad I'm not only one. Lot people seem to have these symptoms but wasn't a support group. When did start one no one responded. I agree think mental symptoms are the worst. Have had any Windows I haven't so far. Some days are worse than others, and the lockdowns over here definitely made things worse, no distractions, can't see anyone or even just go out for a coffee.

I found out this morning that my dad is being tested for a rare blood disorder and was hospitalized/transferred to another hospital. The mental symptoms are taking control.
