I take Lunesta (2 mg) when I need to get sleep. Sometimes the opiods keep me awake. The big advantage I see for Lunesta is that it doesn't have a "hangover" in the morning like other sleeping aids both Rx and OTC. I does sneak up on me, however. I never take it until I am ready for sleep. Hope this helps. Remember that getting a good night's sleep is one of the first tools in managing chronic pain. Most pain management meds will be more effective if one is well rested.
