    This sleeping medication seems to be working so far. Had close to 7 hours and I have extreme insomnia where I only sleep 4 hours at a time.

    I am Bipolar and was afraid to try Lunesta. I had not been sleeping after coming off of Clonazapam & having my condition. Lunesta is wonderful! I woke up feeling refreshed and dramatically better after full night's sleep!I give it an "A+" rating!

    Suffering from chronic insomnia for 20 years. Tried Trazodone, Doxepin, Melatonin and over the counter sleep aid..etc with no luck. Finally tried generic Lunesta this week, and Oh My Gosh! I sleep like a baby when I take it! For me, it's a miracle medicine.

    Only take Lunesta if you never want to get an erection again. It is next to impossible. Wet noodle. Just horrible. All erection problems went away within three days after I stopped taking this pill. I have had three other guy friends that confided the exact same problem. Just horrible.
