Zapiz indeed can be very addictive and you may find it hard to get over it. Especially if you are prone to addiction. It binds same receptors alcohol does. If this medicine whas prescribed for sleeping problems, nowadays we have much safer medicines than it, like Zolpidem. If this medicines was for sedation, Hydroxizine seem safer as it does not cause any addiction.

Hope this will help.
