Q.

Long term side effects

What is the long term side effects when using Zopivane 7.5mg? Been on it for a long time and my new GP stated that it can cause dementia. Is this true? She prescribed Trazodone 50mg. Which I am very sceptical to use. Is this the same type of medication as Zopivane? I cannot fall asleep at night and if I do I wake up in the early morning. Zopivane helps me fall asleep and I wake up with no after effects. I have a very active life and work, go to gym daily and is other wise healthy. Please advise.
