Space them out : The codeine and zopiclone are both central nervous system depressants and you need to use caution when taking together. The doses are probably safe together, but as a general rule sedating meds should be spaced out 2-4 hours from each other to prevent respiratory depression and significant side effects.

Dr. Burns is correct! The only exception is if one or all of them have not been prescribed for you!
