Scarred, How are you? My dr switched me  from ambien to lunesta 3 mg for my insomnia. I hope you have a lpd. I really hope it works because I have to pay a 60.00 dollar co pay for it because it doesnt come in generic.

wow it is probably because of the pain and you have alot on your mind. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I atleast got a full night rest . I dont like the fact is i can wake up easily. when ambien worked for me I was in a deep sleep and with lunesta its a light. with ambien when it workes i was out in 10 minutes with lunest it was 30 minutes. But dr says i could of been use to ambien cause I was on it for 2 years and maybe i will just have to be on lunesta for a little while and can go back to ambien. ((((((hugs)))))))

Kimbers;

Yes I am the same way. I was on the ambien for a long time and did not feel like it was working. Changed to Lunesta 3 years ago and I think I am getting used to that as well.

I dont know what my insomnia is from pain or stress. I just miss the way I was 2 years ago that I could sleep on my own with nothing. I dont know what suddenly changed. I hate having to take a pill to fall asleep but I guess whatever it takes. I hope your pain lessens today.

Kimbers;

You should have been alright with the dinner time being 6:30 and taking your Lunesta at 8:30. One thing I have learned about the Lunesta is that if you eat anything before you take it or even after you take it, it will affect how it works on your sleeping pattern. I always eat my dessert late and have now learned to leave at least 2 hours of room there. What strength is your tablets?

Hugsss
