Get different drug..: Biaxin (clarithromycin) may increase the levels of zopiclone in the body, perhaps not a good idea. Zithromax is very similar to Biaxin (clarithromycin) in terms of its benefit with infections, but is much less likely to interact with zopiclone. I'd ask the doc for Zithromax instead of Biaxin (clarithromycin).
