Comment:
I take the 3mg at night. I've had trouble sleeping for many years. I am amazed at how well it works. I swear its a miracle drug. I fall asleep within half an hour and sleep atleast 6-7 hours a night w/ out waking up. I see that a lot of people experience a nasty taste in their mouth, but I havent had that problem with the medicine. I wake up feel refreshed and don't feel as if I need to go ... Show Full Comment

I agree with the other reviewer. I just got this prescription, took it one night and had the most awful metallic/tinny tast in my mouth that lasted ALL day. Nothing I drank or ate would take care of it. It even made plain ice water taste bad! I'm very hesitant to take it again, may have to request a different solution.

While the effect to make me sleep, worked very well - I had the most awful tinny taste in my mouth that I just could not stand.

Comment:
I hated this medication. I had been taking Ambien and my sleep specialist requested me trying Lunestra. I lost a whole weekend. I had difficulty waking up and felt really dizzy and sick for 2 days. I literally could not function the whole weekend waiting for this drug to wear off. I felt over medicated. This was accompanied by a horrendous headache lasting 2 days. Awful stuff.
