Has anyone tried any sleep medications?
How were you experiences?
 
I have an appointment with my PMD July 30.  Was thinking of asking for Lunesta.
 
Thanks for sharing,
Mary

I have been on Ambien.. never tried Lunesta.. and the Ambien works.. put me to sleep within 30minutes of taking it.. BUT, I don't feel rested the next day.. I don't feel groggy, just not rested.. Hhmm...

I know Erin has taken some too, but they didn't do much for her at the time..

Good luck Mary! let us know what you decide!

Thanks for you replies.

I have taken Ambien 10mg in the past after a work-related back injury. But Lunesta seems to be the only sleep med approved for long-term use. And supposedly no rebound insomnia - so I'll see what the PMD says.
