If I split a 3 mg Lunesta and took 1/2 (1.5mg) at 10 PM and the other half (1.5mg) at 3 AM, would that be the same as taking 3mg at the same time? Or would it just be like taking 1.5mg and 1.5mg. I would get the effect of just 1.5mg each time rather than the effect of taking 3mg at the same time.
Hope I have explained this properly.

Hello, Alice! How are you?

Yes, you can't take half a pill and get the effect of taking a full one.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and funny taste in your mouth.

Is there anything else I can help with?

You said "Yes, you can't take half a pill and get the effect of taking a full one." I don't understand. I'm wondering if I take 1/2 in the evening and 1/2 in four hours would it be the same effect as taking 1 3mg tablet. Or would it be the effect of only 1/2 each time or would it be effect of 3mg if 1/2 taken at different times during the day?>
