Hi countrygal, I have taken Lunestia before and still do from time to time.  It does help greatly for sleep disorders if you have problems in this area.  I also take Effexor XR and have for a yr and half without the two having any kind of interactions with each other.  As for the sleep apnea all I can say is that if you have family members that have this disorder this does not mean that you do also...but to be on the safe side you may want to call your prescribing physician and double check with them.  Lunestia is a non-benzodiazepine which is less habit forming then taking Xanax at night as this is a benzodiazepine and can be addictive with long-term use.

smurf  Hi Country girl, I have had alot of trouble sleeping also, I take Lunesta a few nights a week and I've also tried Ambian cr. They both work but I prefer The ambian for it lasts for the whole night. The Lunesta helps me get to sleep but I seem to still wake up in the middle of the night. The ambian is a controlled release pill, so it helps you get to sleep and stay asleep, so to me, you get a better nights rest, Hope this helps, Kris
