    I tried Eszopiclone last night before bed at 3 mg and it is the best sleep aid on the planet for me. Everybody is different but I have tried every drug for Insomnia and Anxiety.

    Works best on an empty stomach and low caffeine intake such as one morning cup of tea. Daily exercise helps.takes at least one hour to work. I keep my bedroom completely dark, put a sock over my phone and TV pin light. A godsend to me after so many sleepless nights.Ambien put me in a bad mood.

    I took Lunesta for several years with wonderful success now the insurance co. has me taking the generic. Oddly the generic cost me more the Lunesta and it does not work as well. I will wake up through the night and have slept walked as well apparently though a houseplant was the toilet. As concerning as that was my greatest is that it will only help sleep for about 3hrs. I want my Lunesta back.
