Lunesta Dependence


Lunesta is a newly released sleeping pill. Marketed as a revolutionary sleep aid, Lunesta is the only medication approved by the FDA for long term treatment of insomnia symptoms. Although Lunesta is a quality medicine that has already helped many people cure their insomnia symptoms and get a better night's sleep, there is something you should know before your buy Lunesta.

Some people taking sleep medicines such as Ambien, Lunesta and Sonata develop dependence on the medication over a long period of time. This means that with long-term use of these sleep aids, our bodies may get used to having the medicine. When we stop taking it suddenly, we may experience unpleasant effects, called withdrawal symptoms.

After seeing the results of clinical trials, we noted that Lunesta is not a highly addictive substance. No cases of dependence were recorded among many people during six months. But, as with anything you get used to, it is usually hard to suddenly give it up. If you feel you might be facing a light dependence or addiction to Lunesta, please tell your doctor about it. Your doctor will help you gradually lower your dosage until you can stop taking Lunesta without experiencing the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
