Lunesta dosage 6 mg

Common Questions and Answers about Lunesta dosage 6 mg


Avatar f tn I went home and took half, waited 2 hours to see how I was feeling and took 2 mg more then another 2mgs 6 hours later. When I went back the next day he was surprised I only needed half of what he thought I would. Worked out great, saved me doc visits. I went back one other time to get 4 more pills. In 10 days I only needed about 6 pills I think so 17 should be enough for a detox. Best of Luck to you.

Avatar f tn As of last week (maybe two weeks ago), I had reduced my Klonopin intake from 3 MG/day to 1.5 MG/day.
Avatar f tn He says that the usual dose for Trazodone is 50 mg but you need to experiment to see how much you need---anywhere from 1/2 tablet to 6 pills at bedtime--most need no more than 2 which is what you are taking. Total daily dose should not exceed 450 mg. If you are on an anti-depressant limit the amount to 150 mg. to avoid risk of excessive serotonin. Main side effect is next day sedation and if this happens you should either lower your dose or take it earlier in the evening.
Avatar m tn They put me to sleep but I wake up after 4-5 hrs. My doctor increased my mg on the Lunesta from 2 mg to 3 mg (he didn't want to at first) but I still didn't get the results of staying asleep. I know the Temazepam (Restoril) is a benzodiazepine and I've been tapering off Ativan, which is in the same family. So that's why I worry about Ativan and the Tenazepam. Both are Benzo's. I don't hear as many bad things about coming off Ativan or Lunestra as I do on Restoril and Ativan.
1201433 tn?1329001237 My husband, who is very sensitive to Ambien, and took an occasiona 2.5 mg to sleep, had to up his dosage to 10mg during the INC portion of his treatment (upon doctor's advice, of course) Now he's down to about 5 mg. which works fine. The other recommendation I would have is to move your 2nd dose of riba earlier in the afternoon. I don't know what time you're taking it, but that definitely can affect sleep. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn past 6 months: bupropion (300 mg daily) zoloft Again, all tests have returned normal. Sleep study pending. Thanks for any help!
Avatar n tn I usually sleep about 5-6 hours and wake up about twice. It all started to happen when I had a bad week of stomach pains and acid reflux. Even when I felt sick i was sleeping good but after i felt better my mind would not shut off as i would lay down.Also im constantly aware of my heartbeat when lying down and can feel a pulse on the pillow and behind my ear. I think the primary insomnia that i had turned out to be got worse cause i continued to obsess about if i was going to sleep or not.
Avatar f tn I wouldn't recommend xanax or cholonopin (sp) as I've been on both but the xanax is 3 years now and I didn't realize the dosage was so high. 3 mg per day - that's crazy.
789911 tn?1368640383 Odansatron maybe 6 times. Vistaril for itching-didn't work so good.
Avatar n tn 25 mg three times a day for two weeks, then .25 mg twice a day for two weeks and then .25 mg once a day and then tell him how i am doing. I am a little nervous, because my body is so use to the xanax. if i miss a dose, i feel literally out of it. my body's scary...i have severe panic disorder, but i feel i'm at the point where the xanax is doing me worse than better. i am hoping this tapering problem helps...i am scared of withdrawal symptoms...
Avatar f tn just doesn't stay there longer than 4 hrs. NOT good. Your body needs the deep REM sleep; needs to restore itself and not sleeping 6-8 hrs can affect your heart, b/p, metabolism and lots of other bodily functions. He is going to try Trazadone......even tho he has kidney disease stage 3. I have asked some questions of his dr about this and didn't get a satisfactory answer. We're gonna educate ourselves and do what we think is best and safest. They started him on 100 mg at bedtime.
Avatar n tn L-Tyrosine* (500 mg caps) from the health food store.* [See Warning] 4. Strong wide-spectrum mineral supplement with at least 100% RDA of Zinc, Phosphorus, Copper and Magnesium. 5.

[many gyms offer free trials] How to use the recipe Begin your detox with regular doses of Valium (or alternate benzo). Start with a dose high enough to produce sleep.
Avatar n tn 1. L-lysine 500 mg caps 2. Vit B-6 100 mg tabs 3. A good, high potency multi-vitamin ( don't go cheap on this) 4. Imodium 5. BANANAS!! 6. The Thomas recipe also includes the valium and the Clonidine, and you can read about this on the link..." Wow - I actually may have answered one of my own questions reposting this. lol In my *personal* experience, Imodium is probably the most important on the list...
937868 tn?1379188559 Todayi came back from the hospital, last thursday the doctor decided to keep me 3 days in the hospital to be able to treat the anxaiety and and monitor my new meds. Now im taking 40 mg prozac, 1 mg ativan and. 5 mg olanzapine. Tomorrow I will be back to the Partial Hospitalization program for therapy as long as need it. Thanks to God these last 3 days has been better, much less anxiety and more control over OCD and depresion. Thanks for asking.
Avatar f tn I worked up my dosage to 3 mg nightly and suddenly in early September 2010, it stopped working. Taking a higher dosage made things actually worse. I just couldn't fall sleep anymore. I would lay in bed with my eyes closed but wide awake. Little did I know about Lorazepam withdrawal! I was given Lunesta, which did not work, 25mg Seroquel which worked a little bit for a few days if taken along with 15mg Tamazepam. Then it ' too, stopped working.
7271466 tn?1389729145 I was still suffering with obsessive thoughts anxiety. After being on xanax .5 to 1 mg for 28 years a new Doc took me off Xanax and put me on Lunesta. After 11 moths although I slept really well I had an anxiety meltdown almost to point of an emergency room visit with a panic attack. I went back to my former Doc and he put me back on Xanax. But it wasn't working like before as the med would wear off in 3 to 5 hours. It became a clock watcher drug. My doc suggested a physc.
Avatar m tn The short story is my wife broke her back and pelvis in a horse-riding accident in 2007 and has a pharmacy of her own. I have steadily increased the dosage over the years to about 140/mg a day by using her pharmacy to (steal)supplement my addiction. I have been in recovery from alcoholism (via AA) since 2005 and have not had a drop since I walked thru the doors of AA. I retired in 2009 as a police officer after 20 years of service.
Avatar f tn I have tried Lunesta, Rozeram, Ambien CR, etc. What worked for me was Ativan. Lunesta would give me around 5 hours of sleep, but I felt tired during the day. I am currently taking Ambien Cr. at a higher dose 12mg., because the 6mg didn't do much for me. I'll let you know if the higher dose works better. The doctor stopped my taking Ativan because he said it would cause more problems for me in the long run because of addiction. Xanax also worked for a while as well.
Avatar n tn Dichioraiphenazone USP, 100 mg.; and Acetaminophen USP, 325 mg. Isometheptene Mucate is a white crystalline powder having a characteristic aromatic odor and bitter taste. It is an unsaturated aliphatic amine with sympathomimetic properties. Dichioraiphenazone is a white, microcrystalline powder, with slight odor and tastes saline at first, becoming acrid. It is a mild sedative.
Avatar n tn Help! I've tried detoxing from xanex 3 times & the withdrawal is dehibilitating. here's my story: 3 times i was hospitalized in mental health/behavioral units for detox of xanax and because of no insurance was kicked out within one week. i've been on xanax for 7 years starting out with .5 mg three times a day. i built up a tolerance & abused the drug in order to get the same effect.
Avatar n tn NOW, I am currently taking 3mg of Lunesta, and my dose of 7.5 Hydrocodone has increased to 6-8 a day, and that is causing some urine problems, and anxiety - so now I am taking about 17-25 (10mg Valium) A DAY, to counteract what I'm experiencing. So, last week I looked at the whole situation, and told myself, I'm not going to let my life fade away from me again on these stupid Hell Bound perscription drugs again! So, last week I said THAT'S IT, and I dropped the bottle of 7.5 7.
Avatar n tn my son is 23, he has been diagnosed with schizophrenia undifferentiated, the dosage he is taking keeps it incontrol, from what i have read it can change at any point, I'm not sure at what point in his life this started, but he went for 6 months without any meds (he was not living with me at the time) he has been married had 2 kids and divorced which sent him spiraling downward, he got addicted to drugs and huffing, since moving in he has not been on drugs, and I got him to all his necessary app
Avatar m tn However, there are no consistent standards on melatonin doses. Some research suggests that 0.3 mg may be the most effective dosage in many people with insomnia. However, higher doses may keep some people awake and may also cause mental impairment, severe headaches, and nightmares. Although melatonin may not have many benefits for most people with chronic insomnia, studies suggest that it may help travelers with jet lag and people with delayed sleep syndrome. http://health.nytimes.
209656 tn?1272300665 THERE IS ABSOULTLY NO DIFFERENCE, WITH THE OLD AMBIEN AND THE so called "NEW AMBIEN CR" - It was just a name a dosage change TO KEEP ANOTHER PATENT going. I Have only been on them for 2 months now and have done weird things in the middle of night, and now these horrible WITHDRAWALS ALREADY!!!! The only thing that get's rid of these crazy w/d in the morning is the good old Valium (Mild Long Lasting BENZO).
Avatar m tn I finally went to my doctor and got a prescription for Lunesta. Worked like a charm. They are strong though, I cut them in half and they still worked great.
Avatar n tn I went on it to help with w/d from being over medicated on fentenyl patches by a crazy pain specialist. After I got to 4 mg I had to stay 6 days and am trying to cut dose today. It has been hard. The anxiety is awful, but I do have something to take. I usually let it get bad before I take it. I take lunesta to help me sleep. It works. I been taking them on and off for years. I wake up feeling bad every morning. I'm always nauseated.
707647 tn?1251492147 People who live the longest sleep 7 hours per night, not eight, so don’t worry about getting 8 hours of sleep. Most people need between 6 and 8 hours of sleep to function effectively during the day. 2.Get out of bed within a half hour of the same time every day, including weekends, no matter how little or poorly you have slept. 3.Reduce your time in bed so that it more closely matches the amount of sleep you average each night. 4.Use the bedroom for sleep and sexual activity only. 5.
Avatar m tn Was taking 0.5 mg at bedtime only. Have been taking 0.25 mg at bedtime only for 7 days now. Am seeing psych NP next week. Will continue on 0.25 mg until then and will ask for 0.25 mg tablets then to split in half. Will take 0.25 mg for 2 weeks and then for 2 more weeks every other day. Hopefully that will ease any discomfort. Will be returning to work at the end of November post surgery and hoping I will be more tired naturally as a result.
Avatar n tn I've been on 25 mg of Seroquel for a few months. I certainly think 100 mg will put you out quickly. When I first took it, I recall nearly dropping a glass from my hand because I was falling asleep, sitting upright on a sofa.
