    The 2 mg tablet helps me to obtain a deeper sleep and the ability to get back to sleep when I awake for nightly pit stops. I only get about 5.5 hrs of sleep at night and I often need an hour nap during the day. Overall I feel better rested than years prior to taking Lunesta.

    I've had chronic insomnia for years. I've tried a laundry list of medications to help and this one was by far the WORST experience I have had on a medication. Not only did it not help me sleep at all, but one night at around 4am I had horrific hallucinations and thought I was going to die.

    Comment:
    My son age 25 was taking this drug. The only problem was that he would forget he took the pill and take another an hour later. When I would try to keep him from taking more he would become very angry at one point pushing me down.
