Lunesta coupons and health discount plans can reduce the costs of this insomnia treatment by providing reduced-cost and sometimes even free Lunesta, regardless of whether or not a patient has health insurance for prescription drugs.
Lunesta is used to treat patients who have difficulty falling and staying asleep. It fights insomnia by lowering activity levels in the brain. Lunesta is usually taken once per night, just before bedtime. The drug may be less effective if patients take it with a meal heavy in fats. Lunesta typically takes a week or more to fully take effect, and patients who stop taking the drug abruptly may experience withdrawal effects such as anxiety, cramping, strange dreams, upset stomach and shakiness. In severe but rare cases, seizures may occur. This is why doctors typically taper patients off of Lunesta slowly.

Lunesta is the brand name for eszopicline, a hypnotic that slows brain activity. This mechanism usually causes Lunesta users to become drowsy and fall asleep. Lunesta is typically taken before bed, or after a person has tried unsuccessfully to fall asleep without medication. People who take Lunesta are advised to allow eight hours between taking the sleeping pill and resuming normal activity to minimize the likelihood of experiencing side effects such as dizziness, lightheadedness, hallucinations, and problems with coordination and memory.
