Valium addiction question

Hi i take valium for anxiety and was wondering if taking zopiclone while on my break from valium will it turn into physical addiction, as in i take valium for a week max and then take a break for a week, is it ok to take zopiclone one or two days during this break from valium? also what is the longest valium withdrawals take to start? i went through mild withdrawals from internet valium for about 2 weeks and they started after 3 days. Any help appreciated. Thanks for reading. Also trying to find a good online cbt course or reading to help with my anxiety/depression if anyone knows one off hand

Dear Dothee,

Benzodiazepines can have withdrawals up to 2  to 3 weeks later…They are very complicated drugs with a number of side effect. Please look for a psychiatrist that can help you with your anxiety and depression and help you control your medication. Starting and stopping puts you through a chemical roll coaster that can aggravate the situation. Please look for the appropriate medical help. Good luck..
