5 posts in this topic

Another confusing question

contraindications of zopliclone except

pregnancy

breast feeding

respiratory depression

unstable mystenia gravis

severe sleep apnoea

Now according to Maudsley Z drugs are allowed to use in Breast Feeding (See Maudsley Guidelines) But BNF contraindication.

My answer was breast feeding as I folllow Maudsley but loooks not right according to BNF.

the answer is in the bnf;

contrindications of zopiclone:

marked neuromuscular respiratory weakness including unstable myasthenia gravis, respiratory failure, severe sleep apnoea, and breast feeding.

all options were there apart from pregnancy which apparently is the right answer.

BNF says pregnancy and breast feeding with the other 3. So according to BNF Zopiclone can not be used for all of them. College only has the answer.
