Is Lunesta a controlled substance?

Ia Lunesta a controlled substance. Medco is only refilling it once when my doctor prescribed it for 12 months ## The reason they are doing that has nothing to do with the drug class, it actually could be due to one of two reasons: Your insurance and what they cover. Most insurance companies set up a certain list of drugs they will cover and how often and they will not allow refills on some items that they do not consider necessary for long-term use, you will need to see your doctor for a refill or have them phone one in whenever you need one. They also don't want to be laying out the money to cover regular refills every 30days on a drug that you might not be using that often or you might stop taking after awhile. Another possible reason has to do with how your doctor prescribes it, ...

Interactions Between Lunesta And Nitrofur Macr

Learn more Nitrofurantoin details here and there are more Lunesta details here. The main issue would most likely be the possibility of some worsening side effects, such as feeling some nausea, or dizziness. Is there anything else I can help with?

I'm on Medicaid they turned me down for lunesta3mg I had to pay $180.00 $ for 30. then medicaid approved me foe 2mg lunesta. can i be reimbersed for the $180.00? ## I don't think Medicaid will reimburse for something you already paid for and that was for a different dosage, but you can call them to check or ask at your pharmacy. Lunesta contains the active ingredient Eszopiclone and is used to treat insomnia. Common side effects may include: dizziness, fatigue, funny taste and heartburn.

the 3 mg tablets do not help me, seems like 2 do but is that safe? ## actually what is the highest dose anyone has taken? seems like my tolerance is high. ## That dosage is safe, prescribing info says it has been tested safe up to 7.5mgs, but I would recommend talking to your doctor, he might want to try something different for you that could work better instead of taking your dose up that high. ## It depends on your body. I took 9mg Lunesta + 5 Ambien & slept great. My doc wasn't very excited and wont give me any more. So instead I take 2mg Klonopin, 10 mg Ambien, 25/50 Topamax and something else.

Much worst than a bad taste...

My husband of 36 years went to his doctor for relief from insomnia which he just started experiencing. He was given samples of Lunesta and on the 4th night of taking the 3mg tablet, he got out of the bed, got fully dressed and I found him on the driveway with a bullet hole in his head. This 58 year old grandfather, who loved his life, his family, his job and everyone he met was gone with no anticipation of what he did. Illegal drugs are no more deadly than this drug, why is Lunesta legal and pushed by doctors?

lunesta reaction

Used Lunesta and Ambien and both times had severe reactions that left my body rigid. I felt like I was 'out of body' Very scary. ## It definitely sounds like the sedative hypnotics are causing an adverse reaction for you. There are other options that your doctor can try, including some of the antipsychotic medications that can help with insomnia problems, but do not carry the same types of side effects since they are a completely different class of medications.

appetite

my friends mother takes lunesta she says since taking this medication her mother is hungry all the time even in the middle of the night anyone no anything about this? thanks ## There is nothing like that listed as a side effect in the monographs on it, however, meds can affect everyone differently. If she is having a problem with it, she will need to talk to her doctor and they may be able to switch her to something else that won't do that.

C198

Small blue pill with C198 on one side and nothing on the other (wondering if it was a lunesta) ## I am not able to find it anywhere. Perhaps this is an over the counter medication. When verwon comes on next time she might be able to identify it from one of her databases. Does the pill have any other imprint?

Ambiem CR

Is this round salmon colored pill A~ Ambiem CR? This was a refill and it's not anything like the first prescription. Thanks Yvonne ## Yes, the new tablets are a little different, because they have two layers, one is fast dissolving so you fall asleep fast, then the second layer is time released to help you stay asleep longer. ## I get better results with the original Ambiem that the CR pill -- I found myself taking the CR two hours before bedtime and then sometimes still laying there for awhile. Have you tried Lunesta?
