Zopiclone is a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic used in the treatment of transient and short-term insomnia. Zopiclone is admiministered orally just before bedtime and cannot be used as a suppository. Gastrointestinal problems like dry mouth, dyspepsia, halitosis and bitter taste in mouth are common side-effects of the drug. I would advise that you speak to your doctor on other alternative if you cannot tolerated the bitter taste side-effect of zopiclone.
