    Has anyone tried this medication? If so did it work well for you? I read on the web that their have been no studies done on it if you have sleep apnea. I also have that. I guess I just need to call the dr. back.
    Thanks Diane

    I tried this med frosty50, but it didn't work for me. My doctor wanted me to try it.
    I used Lunesta for about 10 months or so and it stopped working, so now I take Ambien CR.
    The Ambien CR is the best so far, but my husband had a funny conversation with me the other night that I don't remember. He knew I was sleeping when I asked him if he was finished counting the pigs. Who knows what I was dreaming about.

    and said it did absolutely NOTHING. I had that same reaction to lunesta. Ambien, 2 10mgs is all that helps me.

    good luck

    I've been on Rozerem for about 16 months & it has saved me. It's been the only thing to work. Ambien & Lunesta were nighmares & I saw so many sunrises with them, as I was awake with them 6 hours after taking the pills. Phooey!

    I don't have sleep apnea, but have much delayed sleep cycle & insomnia.

    I have Rozerem and have not tried it. I have started taking Lunesta and is works fine which has shocked me.

    Before I was taking Ambien and alternating to Restoril. Both heavy duty, especially Restoril.

    With Lunesta I gently go to sleep and remain asleep all night. I was sure after being in Ambien/Restoril it would not work.

    Now I am thinking to reducing the Lunesta from 3 mg to 2 because I am still tired the next day.

    I read with Lunesta you never get tolerance problems.
