I was on Lunesta for a short period of time, but it was a while ago, so I don't remember whether or not I took it on an empty stomach. I'm sure you can look it up online if you google "lunesta" or "lunesta drug facts," or something along those lines. I think that the reason for taking sleep aids on an empty stomach is that they are then broken down & absorbed into the blood stream faster, because there is nothing else in your stomach to digest & slow down the process. But don't quote me on that. I'm sure your doctor or pharmacist could tell you as well.
