    This is by far the best sleeping pill I've ever used. The problem of the horrible taste it leaves made me stop using it and go back to Ambien.

    This particular medication leaves the worst after taste in the morning. It was so nauseous I stopped using it even though it was very effective for sleep.

    My experience with Lunesta was a nightmare! Terrible dreams were nightly events. It was a toss and turn type of"try to sleep" trauma. The horrible taste in my mouth was similiar to what a bad septic tank would smell. Thank goodness I had a physician who would listen to me and changed me to Ambien.

    After a lifetime of chronic insomnia (unable to fall asleep), I started taking daily doses of Ambien. Two years ago my insurance carrier wouldn't cover Ambien so I switched to Lunesta. I am prescribed 2 mg but split the tablets and take 1 mg most nights. I usually fall asleep within 1/2 hour, but after 2 years I now often wake up after just 5-6 hours of sleep. I could just be getting older!
