Nick Says:

I was prescribed a 3mg Lunesta and it worked very well for its purpose. One of the listed side effects is a bad taste, and yes I did experience that. What I am wondering is if anybody knows how long that's supposed to last - I had a glass of water when I woke up the next morning and the taste was awful! Should it go away soon?

The bad taste is usually caused by the dry mouth that many meds cause as a side effect, dry mouth tends to make your taste buds hyper sensitive.

I have been taking lunests for about 1 year and what I do about the taste is cranberry juice. It's wonderful by the morning the medicine taste is gone.

Lunesta is horrible. That taste drove me crazy, it is beyond dry-mouth causeing hyper sensativity in the taste buds. It gives you a horrible chemical taste. Cranberry juice and orange juice was all that tasted moderately alright. My suggestion: Ambien, slight dry mouth but works just as good in my opinion and no horrid taste. I used Lunesta for about a week till I had to find another route for sleep depravation cause I would rather not sleep than wake up with acid in my mouth!

I had the same side effect. It never went away so I had to change from Lunesta to Ambien.

In your experience, would you say that Ambien has worked as well for sleeping as Lunesta ?

Much, Much Better! I am not a big fan of Ambien CR, because it wakes me up during the night. But just your regular Ambien works great and you can get it in generic Zolpidem. Ambien CR does not come in generic

I've taken it 4 times and the taste remains there till you have to take it again. It's awful. Nothing made the taste go away. I kept drinking water to try to wash it out of my system but noooo!! Wtf is that?
