      I have tried several different medications to treat my insomnia, from over-the-counter products, to prescriptions, and even home remedies.

      A while back, my doctor suggested I try Lunesta. I had high hopes for this product since I had heard good things about it. I had also seen all the commercials on TV talking about how effective it was.

      So, the first night, I took the medication exactly as my

      doctor told me to. I didn’t notice that I felt any more tired than usual. I also noticed that the medication seemed to upset my stomach. I got up and ate a small snack and my stomach ache went away.

      I didn’t sleep any better that night. I noticed nothing different about me sleep pattern, I just tossed and turned and woke up several times during ...

      • the night as I always had. The medication didn’t even make me drowsy.

        I called my docotr the next day and he suggested that I try a double dose. So I tried that the next night. I did fall asleep, but once I was asleep I had vivid nightmares all night long. I would wake up in a cold sweat, and was scared to go back

        to sleep.

        I discontinued the medication since I wouldn’t want to risk experiencing night terrors like that again. My doctor said that is one of the possible side-effects of Lunesta.

        So, this is yet another medication that didn’t work for me. I would not recomend this product. If you take it, read the warning label for possible adverse effects. I know it works for some people, nut not for me.
