I HATE LUNESTA. I took the medication one night and i withdrawled. It made me feel so depressed and down i cannot explain. And that taste in my mouth felt like whatever i drank or ate has chemicals in it. I absolutely have nothing to say about this. It made my body feel tired but not my mind. I DO NOT RECOMMEND TAKING THIS EVER.

Have EXTREME/CRONIC insomnia. This drug is hit and miss. Leaves the SEVERE taste of SHIT in your mouth/throat/stomach for days after taking. This is actually a good diet aid; because if you take it 2-3 nights in a row; the extreme taste of shit makes everything you eat or drink taste that way and you just stop eating.

This is a great sleep aid. You wake up refreshed! I sleep through the night pretty much. No headache or dizziness when I wake up. Did not like the generic brand side effects.

Okay, I gave it two tries and these were two of the worst days in my life. My head was in a fog all the next day. I felt down... like just... down. Not depressed, just oppressed. It was awful. I slept but woke up feeling like I hadn't slept and still needed to sleep more. There's this awful taste in my mouth. Sort of like metal I guess. I won't be trying this anymore. It's ...
