Common Questions and Answers about Lunesta ingredients

lunesta

Do prescription drugs that are used for people like myself with chronic Insomnia cause depression? Since I have been taken Lunesta now for 8 months I have been depressed and have been prescribed Fluoxetine by my doctor. My friend Roberto has told me about a new product that is advertised on TV called Straight2sleep that he is trying. He said that it is all natural and gives him a great night sleep with no side effects. Do you know of this product and how effective is it?
Many doctors recommend a non-narcotic RX for those it is effective for. Ambien, Lunesta,etc. work well in most ppl and is preferred over narcotics because of dependency risks and the possibility of withdrawal down the road that perhaps could have been avoided. I would be extremely cautious using any 'natural' products that claim to have sleep enhancing properties. I can't stress this enough as many of the most hepatotoxic agents to be found anywhere come from herbal concoctions promoting sleep.
I get the same thing once in a while, the dizzy spells on and off, but no special time of the day, they are not specific, the same thing with insomnia, it comes and goes, some nights I will sleep straight through like seven hours, and others I will only sleep 5 and thats with taking #3 Lunesta. I get the symptoms and I am taking meds, I just started on Armour a week ago, I have those same symptoms now, but I hope it is just the transition period.
It claims to help with all the things I have. Insomnia, Fibromyalgia, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety. I am on Effexor XR and Lunesta and would like to come off of both of them. Have you heard anything good or bad that you can share with me about 5HTP?
Watch when buying some Melatonin brands though, b/c some brands have other ingredients like Valerian or Lemon Balm. Which is fine, unless you're already taking these. My thing on supplements. Pay more for well known brands, made in the USA ( if you're here) I read a report that a major study was done, and nearly half didn't even have said ingredient, some even had RX'd meds in them. It followed up saying don't be afraid, just buy from trusted stores. And, sleep will come.
The tablets are white in color and contain the inactive ingredients aspartame, copovidone, crospovidone, ethylcellulose, magnesium stearate, mannitol, mint flavor, and silicon dioxide. ________________________________________________________________ There is ASPARTAME in it? I have a huge adverse reaction to aspartame. I can't even believe that is in there.
I feel desperate. I slept pretty darn good when i was on the hydros and the sub and i did use an ambien or a lunesta, but haven't been using those for awhile now, because after i got off the sub they didn't help much. I do real well if i can get 6 to 7 hours but 3 or 4 just won't cut it. I am like a walking zombie. Trying to go swim laps to get my exercise in so i can help my sleep. Any suggesestions? Oh i am taking a couple of pills that have melatonim in them and 2 other ingredients.
It is always wise to make sure none of the recipe ingredients or procedures conflict with medications you may be taking. Likewise, if you have any medical condition, disease, allergy or any other health issue, consult your doctor before using the recipe. Thanks, Thomas This recipe is designed for cold turkey opiate detox. It assumes that you can get about 5 to 7 days away from your job or household responsibilities during which you can sleep, veg and act as miserable as you feel.
I guess I'm Curious as to when I decide the opiate withdrawals have gotten a lot better and a couple weeks gone by and I quit taken the lyrica as well, will the withdrawals come back in some way because the lyrica might have the same ingredients that hydrocodien has? I just don't want to be taken lyrica and then when the opiate withdrawals are better/gone and I decide to quit taking the lyrica the opiate withdrawals come back and it's like opiate withdrawals all over again (like day 1).
I thought maybe it was from taking lunesta which my doctor gave me but i stopped the lunesta as a test and the whistling kept going. Im a little confused by everything at this point. My doctor says my t3 is the most important factor and won't look at anything else until i get this in range. I feel better, I'm not as tired but i feel "unnatural" t3, free 3.3 ranges are 2.3 to 4.2 t4, free 0.5 ranges 0.8 to 1.
Mainly I cook what I have in the house, usually NEVER the same recipe as I am not that organized to order the exact ingredients everytime, nor do I remember them. Never the same...I like diversity. I went to the house today and spent an hour watching Tivo...my eyes are burning and throat raw. Geez, they have been cleaning for over a week. EVERYTHING. The woman in charge told me that mine is the cleanest house she has ever cleaned. That felt good!
Nightime is bad for me a lot. I have Lunesta before bed. Otherwise I would be up for hours just trying to fall asleep. Everything from the most mundane to the most serious can run through my mind for hours before I am just exhausted and finally fall asleep.
I can't seem to go below 5-6 norco a day, if I do, it really kicks my *** and can't function to well without taking 1-2. Clonidine hcl .1mg seems to have little effect on helping to sleep, but lunesta sparingly lets me get 3-5 hours every couple days, still waking to (restless leg syndrome/ skin crawling) type of sensation that is relieved by 1 norco and about 30 -45 minutes, sometimes I may even get another hour sleep.
Ambien(Zolpidem) Lunesta(Eszopiclone) Sonata(Zaleplon) Imovane(Zopiclone) Also to be avoided are muscle relaxants like Soma and flexeril. they are not only addictive, but they will make you behave like a monkey and then not remember it later. If you're actively abusing opiates AND taking Benzos/hypnotics/muscle relaxants, then you are basically getting down on your hands and knees and begging for an overdose.
I couldn't understand any of the ingredients except the valium. so i took 10mg valium. It put my mind at ease, obviously, but the physical pain is still with me. I now feel drowsy but have no desire to sleep. blargh! screw that, lol Instead of the methadone I'll probably try and taper down of the hydro. Unfortunately I have none right now and getting more has been more than difficult. I was frequenting a walk-in clinic and they said no more...they don't deal with chronic pain. bummer...
(now that has never come up as a side effect in the paperwork in the script) or lack of the inert ingredients taken on a daily basis or for that matter the Synthroid itself .. maybe the body draws from the stores differently when it is taken orally vs. made internally ? We'll never know but I am going to ask my Endo next blood test . I always have at least ONE good ? for her ea. month LOL ..
I've been on both Ambien in the past and presently I'm on Lunesta. I've NEVER had a problem of getting up in the middle of the night cooking food and not realizing it, or taking a drive, or etc., etc. I think that those are very isolated cases that the media likes to run away with because it's different. I'd much rather take my chances with a sleep aid than have to give up my ability to get adequate sleep.
1 lunesta or sonata (whichever is available to me at the time), 2 ounces of Nyquil, 2 over the counter sleep aids (50 mg of whatever puts the 'PM' in 'Tylenol PM') and one mg xanax. Ninety percent of the time that combo puts me out in an hour or so. Subtract the 1 mg of xanax, which I often don't include in order to avoid developing a tolerance, and the success rate drops to perhaps sixty or seventy percent, and it takes a couple of hours to work.
My husband and I just went to GNC today and got all the ingredients. We figure worst case scenario is it will not help us at all, but we have nothing to lose. Go out tonight with your husband and try to have fun. I have figured out that I feel worse on the days I sit around and do nothing...I just focus on the discomfort. If I get up and get moving and keep myself busy, I actually do feel better.
Before you do this, or in the beginning as right now, you need to drive over to the health food store and get the ingredients for the Thomas Recipe. Do not take the Ltyrosine if you take anti-depress-----. Thomas will help drastically with withdrawals. You'll need sleep aids. Get from your doctor or friends. Just a few. Get some over the counter also. Yes, keep the imodium in your back pocket along w/some depends. (lol) Have your house stocked w/plenty of fluids & healthy foods.
I was given a 2 week supply by my dr when i was in the hospital of lunesta..I did sleep but i had already been up for days..I don't like the way it makes me feel so drugged for the better part of the day..so I won't take it until I hit staying up over 24 hrs without any sleep. I do manage a couple hours lately..My brain is the thing that won't leave me alone.... Congrats Mike.. kiki- you can do it..i know it's hard..
I say non-addictive, but the truth is anything can become addictive depending how much you think you need something. That said, I take Lunesta which isn't addictive and it helps but it doesn't bother me when I don't have any...no biggie. I've started to sleep better the last week now that the mania is gone. You just have to keep fighting it and I promise, it won't be as hard as it is now!
It helps with irritability and depression as well. Ambien/Valium/Halcion/Lunesta, etc - this will help you sleep. If it's one thing addicts all have a problem with during this process, it is insomnia. Sleep helps during detox in more ways than one. Not only will it cut the duration in half, (you sleep for hours, so of course it is going to shorten the detox) it also helps your brain and body recharge.
You can also make it and use it as a base for soups and any and everything you cook you can add any other ingredients you want to it. Plus you can freeze it. Add veggie or rice, beans or whatever or add it to tomato sauce on pasta. Of course omega 3's and antioxidants are always good. Stay away from salts soy, garlic salts. salt is a no no for us and it is in everything, I am amazed. Some is ok, but pickles for instance are not a good idea.
it really is only supposed to be used short term, but I'm in the same situation where I've taken it now for a few years and if I don't take it, then I don't sleep..... I've switched over to Lunesta and am going to try Rozeram..... see if I can't kick the sleeping pill habit once and for all.... I think it's amazing that you've chosen to end the dependency on the hydro, and yes addicts come in all shapes, sizes, economic situations.... it's amazing how well we can hide these things.......
I did get the L-Tyrosine for the neurological health and I only take 1 a day. I also got the best vitamin that could be found that contained the ingredients on the Thomas Recipe...but I only take it twice a day and it does provide a little energy. Thanks so much for your encouragement and help in getting me through this. I don't know what I would have done without this forum and all the wonderful people who have so much information for me.
BOTH OPTIONS ARE OPEN TO YOU Read through the Thomas Recipe(posted everywhere here), and specifically the L-Tyrosine/B-6 ingredients; exercise; drinks lots of fluids; and in no time, you'll be enjoying your wonderful wife and kids, growing your business further....all without hydro.
I wish I had known about this post sooner for all the helpful information and moral support. I have all the ingredients in the Thomas recipe as of tonight. Just going to use up the last of my perc's before the weekend. God bless you all. Thanks.
