Taken 'too much' medication

Don't want this linked to my normal account.

I've taken 30mg dihydrocodeine at 8.30/9pm ish for severe pain, then 3.5mg zopiclone about 40 minutes ago to help sleep.

I'm feeling very spaced out . Spoke to NHS 24 who said go to bed (!) but google suggests it's quite serious , can cause respiratory depression? Now thinking I shouldnt have taken the two together.

I'm used to the former (dihydrocodeine) have had big doses in hospital but zopiclone not used to at all.

Scared to sleep understandably! Should I try and fight it for a couple of hours?

Hi you will be ok - just go to bed and sleep. It's a small dose of zopiclone. Night x
