    I began taking Lunesta 3 or 4 months ago. For me, it has made falling asleep and staying asleep entirely possible and as long as I got 8 hours of sleep, I felt well-rested in the morning. Anything less than 8 hours, and I felt horrible - groggy, heavy limbs, no energy. HOWEVER, I have been experiencing hair loss. It started with a few strands here and there, but began increasing over the last 2 mo ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this medication for the last 4 years. I have been on several of these types of medications and none worked as well as this one has. I still have issues but never have paid much attention to the taste. I have to take it 90 minutes to 2 hours before I want to sleep. Most nights it works but once or twice a month does not seem to work as well.

    Lunesta has worked well for me for several years. The taste doesn't bother me - once I swallow the pill and drink water I don't taste it anymore. I get the 3 mg. pill and take a half pill 30 minutes before bed. Works great. I've taken it for years, but I can still fall asleep without taking it now and then. So it doesn't seem to be habit forming. My only issue is that it doesn' ... Show Full Comment
